Am I eligible for the Revlimid patient assistance program?

It’s important to note that every patient assistance program has its own eligibility criteria. At NiceRx, we help you by assessing your eligibility and helping you enroll in patient assistance programs. Most programs will likely consider the following factors:

  • 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 Revlimid patient assistance program?

Our process is simple and straightforward, meaning NiceRx makes it as easy as possible to apply for the Revlimid patient assistance program. Everything starts with your online enrollment application.

Firstly, you will need to tell us about any medications you’re taking, including Revlimid. We’ll also ask for details about your healthcare provider, your insurance plan, and your household income. This important information is required by the pharmaceutical manufacturers who ship your medication.

Once we review your enrollment application, we will determine whether you may be eligible for Revlimid assistance. We will then handle the application process for you and enroll you in the Revlimid patient assistance program. Once enrolled in the program, we’ll also request your Revlimid medication refills on your behalf for a period of up to one year.

Is NiceRx a Revlimid coupons provider?

NiceRx is not a Revlimid coupon, a Revlimid discount card, or a Revlimid copay card. NiceRx is a service provider that helps eligible individuals access the Revlimid patient assistance program. This means that our service does not include printable Revlimid manufacturer coupons, Revlimid discounts, rebates, Revlimid savings cards, trial offers, or free Revlimid samples.

If you’re looking for coupons for Revlimid or cheap Revlimid, keep in mind that you can likely save more with NiceRx. Remember, when obtaining your Revlimid medication through NiceRx, your total cost for the medication will always be $49 per month.

Can NiceRx help me get Revlimid if I have insurance?

At NiceRx we may be able to help in a range of scenarios. This includes if your insurance company won’t pay for your Revlimid medication, or you have a high copay or coinsurance responsibility, or even if you don’t have insurance.

How much is Revlimid with insurance?

The cost of Revlimid will vary by healthcare plan. Your insurance provider or pharmacist will be able to calculate your copay with your current insurance. Remember, if you’re approved for assistance, you’ll likely save more if you get your Revlimid medication through NiceRx.

How much does Revlimid cost without insurance?

Revlimid prices without insurance will vary depending on the quantity and dose you buy, and where you buy your Revlimid from. As a guide, a pack of 21, 15 mg Revlimid capsules will cost around $30,000.

What is Revlimid?

Revlimid is a medicine prescribed to adults to treat certain cancers that can affect your blood, including:

  • Multiple myeloma – alongside the medicine dexamethasone, or as a maintenance treatment after a stem cell transplant
  • Myelodysplastic syndromes
  • Mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) – when the disease has come back or worsens after other treatments
  • Follicular lymphoma – alongside the medicine rituximab
  • Marginal zone lymphomas– alongside the medicine rituximab

Multiple myeloma is a cancer that affects a type of white blood cell called a plasma cell. It causes plasma cells to collect and proliferate in your bone marrow. This can damage your bones and affect your kidneys.

Myelodysplastic syndromes are a group of blood cancers. Typically, they stop your blood cells developing properly, stopping them from functioning as they should. This can make you feel tired, short of breath, make you bleed easily, make you more prone to infections, and can lead to other types of blood cancer, like leukemia.

Mantle cell lymphoma, follicular lymphoma, and marginal zone lymphomas are similar cancers that affect the part of your immune system called your lymph system. They usually cause a type of white blood cell called a B cell to divide in an uncontrolled way. These B cells build up in your blood and can cause tumors to develop in your lymph nodes, spleen, and bone marrow. Tumors can also spread to other organs in your body.

In most cases, the above cancers can’t be cured, but you can manage and reduce your symptoms using medication like Revlimid. Revlimid blocks the development of cancerous cells, kills cancerous cells, and slows the development of tumors. You take Revlimid as a capsule you swallow with water.

Revlimid active ingredients

The active ingredient in Revlimid is called lenalidomide. Lenalidomide works in three main ways to minimize the symptoms of your condition. These include:

  • Blocking the development of cancerous blood cells by causing them to self-terminate.
  • Stimulating your immune system to attack cancerous cells.
  • Stopping blood vessels developing inside cancerous tumors, starving the tumors of the oxygen and nutrients they need to grow.

These three actions help to limit the number of cancerous cells you have in your body and how fast any tumors grow. This can provide relief from your symptoms and slow the progression of your cancer.

  • Digoxin, taken to treat various heart conditions
  • Blood thinners (anticoagulants), such as warfarin
  • Erythropoietin stimulating agents, taken to stimulate your bone marrow to make red blood cells
  • Any hormone therapies that contain estrogen

Revlimid warnings & precautions

Revlimid isn’t suitable for everyone. It can cause birth defects or death of an unborn baby so it mustn’t be taken by women who are pregnant or planning to become pregnant. Don’t try to become pregnant for at least four weeks before starting Revlimid, whilst taking it, or at least for four weeks after you’ve finished taking it.

Revlimid can also pass into human semen. Men taking Revlimid should always wear a condom when having sex with a woman who is or who could become pregnant.

It is not known if Revlimid can pass into breast milk. Don’t breastfeed whilst taking Revlimid.

In addition, don’t take Revlimid if you:

  • Are allergic to the active ingredient lenalidomide
  • Are allergic to any of the other ingredients in Revlimid
  • Are under 18 years of age

Talk to your doctor before taking Revlimid if you:

  • Are taking any of the medications that could interact with Revlimid
  • Have any liver problems
  • Have any kidney problems or are on dialysis
  • Have any thyroid problems
  • Have had a serious skin rash caused by a thalidomide treatment
  • Are lactose intolerant
  • Are aged over 75

Revlimid can cause side effects, like dizziness, sleepiness, vertigo, and blurred vision, that can affect your ability to drive, use machinery, or perform other dangerous tasks. Don’t do so after taking Revlimid until you’re confident it doesn’t give you these side effects.

*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 down the different programs and filling out all the required paperwork for each program.

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.
