Your monthly Pregnyl cost savings if eligible

The Pregnyl patient assistance program can provide your medication for free. We simply charge $49 per month for each medication to cover the cost of our services. With NiceRx, you will only pay $49 to obtain your Pregnyl, regardless of the retail price.

Am I eligible for the Pregnyl patient assistance program?

To find out if you are eligible for Pregnyl assistance you can apply online using our enrollment application. Each pharmaceutical company sets its eligibility criteria, and we will review your application individually to determine if you may be eligible. The three main factors to consider 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 Pregnyl patient assistance program?

Our application process aims to make it as easy as possible to apply for the Pregnyl patient assistance program. The first step is to complete our online enrollment application. We will ask you for details about your healthcare provider, your insurance plan, and your household income as this information is required by the pharmaceutical companies. We may be able to help you apply for other patient assistance programs too, so be sure to tell us about any medications you are taking as well as Pregnyl.

NiceRx will review your application and determine whether you may be eligible for Pregnyl assistance. If so, we will handle the full enrollment process for you and prepare all required documents for your healthcare provider to sign. Once you are successfully enrolled in the Pregnyl patient assistance program, we will help you manage your prescription refills by requesting refills on your behalf throughout your enrollment period. At the end of your enrollment period, we will contact you for updated information and seek to re-enroll you so you can continue to access affordable Pregnyl.

Is NiceRx a Pregnyl coupon provider?

NiceRx is a service provider that helps eligible individuals access the Pregnyl patient assistance program. We do not offer trial offers or free Pregnyl samples. When obtaining your medication through NiceRx, you will only pay $49 a month per medication. This will likely save you more money than if you were to use Pregnyl coupons, discount cards, or Pregnyl copay cards.

Can NiceRx help me get Pregnyl cheaper if I have insurance?

NiceRx may be able to help you if your insurance company will not pay for your XXXX medication. We may also be able to help if you have a high copay or coinsurance responsibility. Whether you have insurance or not, apply online using our enrollment application to find out more.

How much does Pregnyl cost without insurance?

Pregnyl prices without insurance will vary depending on how much you buy. Prices will also vary by retailer. As a guide, Pregnyl intramuscular powder for injection of 10000 units typically costs $120 for 1 powder for injection.

How much does Pregnyl cost with insurance?

The copay for Pregnyl will vary by the terms of your healthcare plan. To find out what you might need to pay for Pregnyl with insurance, your insurance provider or pharmacist will be able to help you calculate the copay costs with your current insurance.

What is Pregnyl?

Pregnyl (human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG)) is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Schering-Plough. Pregnyl is an HCG product containing a polypeptide hormone made up of alpha and beta units produced by the human placenta. The alpha sub-unit is the same as the alpha subunits of the human pituitary gonadotropins, luteinizing hormone, and follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), as well as to the alpha subunit of human thyroid-stimulating hormone. Pregnyl is used for:

  • The induction of ovulation and to treat infertility in women. It is not recommended in women with primary ovarian failure
  • The treatment of men with hypogonadism, where the body doesn’t produce enough testosterone
  • The treatment of young boys aged 4 to 9 years old, whose testicles have not dropped into the scrotum as they normally would

HCG is not recommended as a treatment for weight loss and as such, has not been shown to be more effective than a reduction in calories in the diet.

What doses of Pregnyl are available?

Pregnyl is available in injection form, in the following doses: 10000 in 10mL.

HCG is given as an intramuscular injection or injected subcutaneously. Unmixed HCG and diluent should be stored at room temperature. Mixed medicine should be stored in the refrigerator. Use mixed Pregnyl within 60 days.

Always speak with a healthcare professional for medical advice about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.

Pregnyl active ingredients

Pregnyl contains human chorionic gonadotropin as the active ingredient.

Pregnyl side effects

The most common side effects of Pregnyl in clinical trials include:

  • Headache
  • Depression, irritability
  • Breast tenderness or swelling
  • Injection site reactions

In rare instances, Pregnyl can cause more serious side effects. These can include:

  • Ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) – a potentially life-threatening condition. Symptoms include severe stomach pain or pelvic pain, rapid weight gain, swelling around your waist, feeling short of breath, severe nausea and vomiting, diarrhea, or little or no urination
  • Signs of a blood clot – sudden numbness or weakness down one side of the body, chest pain, problems with vision or speech, pain or swelling in one leg
  • Early puberty in boys – enlarged testicles and penis, facial hair, a deeper voice
  • Arterial thromboembolism

Your doctor will assess the benefits of using Pregnyl against your risk of side effects. Patients are encouraged to report negative side effects or adverse reactions of Pregnyl to the FDA. Visit www.fda.gov/medwatch, or call 1-800-FDA-1088.

Pregnyl drug interactions

Other drugs may interact with Pregnyl, including prescription drugs and over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, and herbal products. Tell your health care provider about all of your medication including any supplements you are taking.

Pregnyl contraindications

You should not use Pregnyl if you:

  • Are allergic to the active ingredient human chorionic gonadotropin
  • Have had an allergic reaction to any of the other ingredients in Pregnyl
  • Have early puberty
  • Have hormone-related cancer such as prostate cancer
  • Have an uncontrolled disorder of your thyroid or adrenal gland
  • Have abnormal undiagnosed vaginal bleeding
  • Have an ovarian cyst
  • Have cancer
  • Are pregnant or are planning to become pregnant – It may harm an unborn baby. Fertility treatment increases the chance of having multiple births (twins, triplets, etc). These are high-risk pregnancies for the mother and the babies

  • Are taking any of the medications that could interact with Pregnyl
  • Have heart disease
  • Have kidney disease
  • Have problems with your thyroid or adrenal gland
  • Have epilepsy
  • Suffer from migraines

  • Are breastfeeding or are planning to breastfeed

Pregnyl generic

Pregnyl is the trademark brand name for human chorionic gonadotropin manufactured by Schering Plough. A generic version of human chorionic gonadotropin is available. Generic drugs are generally cheaper than brand-name drugs, but you can still find Pregnyl savings through NiceRx.

*Qualifying persons may obtain medications directly from patient assistance programs without any out-of-pocket cost (or for less than $49 per medication). However, our monthly flat rate of just $49 per medication spares you the hassle of tracking the different programs and filling out all the required paperwork for each program. Subject to medication availability.

Enrollees enjoy a full-service solution, as NiceRx assists them and their physicians with the entire process. We prepare all required documents for the physician to sign, help enrollees manage all prescription refills, monitor eligibility criteria, and maintain enrollment.

**If you do not receive medications because you were determined to be ineligible for the prescription assistance by the applicable pharmaceutical companies and you have a letter of denial, we will refund any fees you paid toward medications for which you did not qualify to receive prescription assistance (“Refund”).

To receive a refund, you must send the letter of denial to us by fax to 888-517-7444, or by e-mail to [email protected] within 30 days of your receipt of such letter. The Refund is your sole and exclusive remedy for any fees you may wish to dispute.
