Your monthly Rixubis cost savings if eligible

The Rixubis 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 Rixubis, regardless of the retail price.

Am I eligible for the Rixubis patient assistance program?

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

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

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

Is NiceRx a Rixubis coupon provider?

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

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

NiceRx may be able to help you if your insurance company will not pay for your Rixubis 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.

Rixubis prices without insurance will vary depending on how much you buy. Prices will also vary by retailer. As a guide, Rixubis intravenous powder for injection recombinant typically costs $11 for 1 powder for injection.

How much does Rixubis cost with insurance?

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

What is Rixubis?

Rixubis is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Baxalta Incorporated. Rixubis (Coagulation Factor IX [Recombinant]) is an antihemophilic clotting factor indicated in adults and children with hemophilia B for the control and prevention of bleeding episodes, perioperative management, and routine prophylaxis.

It has been found that men on prophylaxis treatment with Rixubis have a 75 percent lower annual bleeding rate than patients receiving on-demand treatment. There were no reports of serious adverse effects.

What doses of Rixubis are available?

Rixubis is available as a lyophilized powder in single-use vials containing nominally 250, 500, 1000, 2000, or 3000 international units.

Rixubis is for intravenous use after reconstitution with diluent only. For the control and prevention of bleeding episodes and perioperative management; one international unit of Rixubis per kg of body weight increases the circulating activity of factor IX by 0.7 international units/dL for patients <12 years of age and 0.9 international units/dL for patients ≥12 years of age.

For routine prophylaxis; patients <12 years of age, 60 to 80 international units per kg twice weekly. Patients ≥ 12 years of age, 40 to 60 international units per kg twice weekly.

Titration of dose may be necessary depending upon the individual patient’s age, bleeding pattern, and physical activity. Always speak with a healthcare professional about any medical problems or changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.

Rixubis active ingredients

Rixubis contains recombinant coagulation factor IX (rFIX) as the active ingredient.

Rixubis side effects

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

  • Dysgeusia
  • Pain in extremity
  • Positive test for furin antibody

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

  • Hypersensitivity reactions, including anaphylaxis
  • Development of neutralizing antibodies (inhibitors) to Rixubis may occur. If expected factor IX activity plasma levels are not attained, or if bleeding is not controlled with an appropriate dose, perform an assay that measures factor IX inhibitor concentration
  • Nephrotic syndrome following immune tolerance induction with factor IX products in hemophilia B patients with factor IX inhibitors
  • Thromboembolic complications

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

Rixubis drug interactions

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