Your monthly Rasuvo cost savings if eligible

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

Am I eligible for the Rasuvo patient assistance program?

To find out if you are eligible for Rasuvo 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 Rasuvo patient assistance program?

Our application process aims to make it as easy as possible to apply for the Rasuvo 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 Rasuvo.

NiceRx will review your application and determine whether you may be eligible for Rasuvo 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 Rasuvo 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 Rasuvo.

Is NiceRx a Rasuvo coupons provider?

NiceRx is a service provider that helps eligible individuals access the Rasuvo patient assistance program. We do not offer trial offers or free Rasuvo 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 Rasuvo coupons, discount cards, or Rasuvo copay cards.

Can NiceRx help me get Rasuvo if I have insurance?

NiceRx may be able to help you if your insurance company will not pay for your Rasuvo 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 is Rasuvo with insurance?

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

How much does Rasuvo cost without insurance?

Rasuvo prices without insurance will vary depending on how much you buy. Prices will also vary by retailer. As a guide, Rasuvo subcutaneous solution (7.5 mg/0.15 mL) typically costs $520 for 0.6 milliliters.

What is Rasuvo?

Rasuvo contains the prescription medicine methotrexate and can be used for the treatment of:

  • Rheumatoid arthritis – in selected adults with severe rheumatoid arthritis (RA), or children with active polyarticular juvenile idiopathic arthritis (pJIA), who have not been adequately treated with other medication
  • Psoriasis – in adults for control of symptoms of severe disabling psoriasis that has not been adequately treated with other medication
  • Leukemia and certain types of cancer of the breast, skin, head and neck, or lung

Rasuvo active ingredients

Methotrexate blocks the action of specific enzymes in the body ultimately blocking the production and repair of DNA as well as blocking the replication of cells. Cells that are growing and spreading such as tumors, bone marrow, fetal, and intestinal cells are generally more sensitive to the effects of methotrexate. How exactly methotrexate works in rheumatoid arthritis is unknown; it may affect immune function.

Rasuvo is usually given once per week. You must make sure you use the correct dose. It is injected directly into your muscle, under the skin, or can be given as an infusion into a vein. A healthcare professional will give you this injection and may show you how to use the medication yourself. Rasuvo can also be injected directly into a joint, or into the space around your spinal cord.

You will need regular medical tests, and you may need an occasional liver biopsy or chest X-ray, as Rasuvo can be toxic to your organs and can lower your blood cell counts.

Rasuvo side effects

The most common side effects caused by Rasuvo include:

  • Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea
  • Low blood cell count
  • Fever, chills, feeling tired
  • Difficulty breathing, tight chest, cough, sore throat, blocked or runny nose
  • Mouth sores
  • Headaches, dizziness
  • Abnormal liver function tests
  • Rash, lesions, hair loss
  • Increased sensitivity to light

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

  • Sudden chest pain
  • Swollen lymph glands, night sweats, weight loss
  • Blisters or ulcers in your mouth, swollen gums, difficulty swallowing
  • Vomiting, diarrhea, blood in your urine or stools
  • Fever, bruising or bleeding, pale skin, cold hands and feet, feeling light-headed or short of breath
  • Decreased urination, swelling in your feet or ankles
  • Darker urine, jaundice (yellowing of the skin or eyes)
  • Muscle cramps, irregular heart rate

Your doctor will assess the benefits of using Rasuvo against your risk of side effects.

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.
