Your monthly Riabni cost savings if eligible

The Riabni 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 Riabni, regardless of the retail price.

Am I eligible for the Riabni patient assistance program?

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

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

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

Is NiceRx a Riabni coupon provider?

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

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

NiceRx may be able to help you if your insurance company will not pay for your Riabni 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 Riabni cost without insurance?

Riabni prices without insurance will vary depending on how much you buy. Prices will also vary by retailer. As a guide, Riabni intravenous solution (arrx 10 mg/mL) typically costs $765 for 10 milliliters.

How much does Riabni cost with insurance?

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

What is Riabni?

Riabni is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Amgen Inc.

Riabni (rituximab-arrx) is a CD20-directed cytolytic antibody indicated for the treatment of

  1. Adult patients with non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma (NHL):
  • Relapsed or refractory, low grade or follicular, CD20-positive B-cell NHL as a single agent
  • Previously untreated follicular, CD20-positive, B-cell NHL in combination with first-line chemotherapy and, in patients achieving a complete or partial response to a rituximab product in combination with chemotherapy, as single-agent maintenance therapy
  • Non-progressing low-grade, CD20-positive, B-cell NHL as a single agent after first-line cyclophosphamide, vincristine, and prednisone (CVP) chemotherapy
  • Previously untreated diffuse large B-cell, CD20-positive NHL in combination with cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine, and prednisone (CHOP) or other anthracycline-based chemotherapy regimens
  1. Adult patients with Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL)
  • Previously untreated and previously treated CD20-positive CLL in combination with fludarabine and cyclophosphamide
  1. Granulomatosis with Polyangiitis (GPA) (Wegener’s Granulomatosis) and Microscopic Polyangiitis (MPA) in adult patients in combination with glucocorticoids

Riabni is the third biosimilar to Rituxan with FDA approval in the U.S. for the treatment of ANCA vasculitis in combination with glucocorticoids, and the blood cancers, after Truxima (rituximab-abbs; marketed by Teva) and Ruxience (rituximab-pvvr, marketed by Pfizer).

Biosimilar means that the biological product is approved based on data demonstrating that it is highly similar to an FDA-approved biological product, known as a reference product and that there are no clinically meaningful differences between the biosimilar product and the reference product. Biosimilarity of Riabni has been demonstrated for the condition(s) of use (e.g., indication(s), dosing regimen(s), strength(s), dosage form(s) and route(s) of administration) described in its full prescribing information.

What doses of Riabni are available?

Riabni is available in injection form, in the following doses: 100 mg/10 mL (10 mg/mL) and 500 mg/50 mL (10 mg/mL) solution in single-dose vials.

Always speak with your healthcare provider about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.
