Am I eligible for Pifeltro patient assistance?

We review each Pifeltro enrollment application individually to determine if you are eligible. Each assistance program has its own eligibility criteria and the factors considered by most programs are:

  • I am a permanent, legal resident of the United States or Puerto Rico
  • I am uninsured or my insurance doesn’t cover my medication
  • I meet certain income eligibility requirements

How do I apply for the Pifeltro patient assistance program?

Our process makes it as easy as possible to apply for the Pifeltro patient assistance program. Begin by completing the enrollment application form on our website. Tell us about any medications that you are taking, including Pifeltro. You must also provide details about your healthcare provider, your insurance plan, and your household income. This is required by the pharmaceutical manufacturers who will supply the medication, so it is important to make sure this information is accurate and up to date.

We will review the information that you have provided to determine whether you are eligible for patient assistance. If we can pre-qualify you for assistance, NiceRx will handle the full enrollment process on your behalf. If you are approved by the pharmaceutical company, you will typically start receiving your medication in 6 – 8 weeks.

What is Pifeltro?

Pifeltro contains the prescription medicine doravirine, which is classed as an antiviral medicine. Pifeltro may be used on its own or in combination with other medicines to treat the symptoms and to stop the spread of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) in your body. HIV is the virus that can cause acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). It is important to understand that Pifeltro is not a cure for HIV or AIDS. Also, it is not known if Pifeltro is safe to use in children under 18 years of age.

Pifeltro active ingredients

Doravirine works by blocking a specific enzyme known as HIV reverse transcriptase from working in your body. Blocking this enzyme prevents the production of more HIV DNA. This reduces the amount of the HIV virus in your body and slows it from spreading.

Doravirine should be taken exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Usually in adults, one tablet is taken orally once daily with or without food. If you are taking a medicine called rifabutin, you may need to take doravirine twice per day. You may need regular blood tests, as well as kidney and liver function tests while taking Pifeltro. You should make sure you get your medication refilled before you run out completely. Your disease may become resistant to doravirine if you stop taking it, even for a short time. If you have hepatitis B you may develop liver symptoms after stopping taking this medication, even months after. You may need to have your liver function checked for several months after you have stopped using Pifeltro. HIV/AIDS is usually treated with a combination of drugs.
