Am I eligible for the Ruxience patient assistance program?

We will review your application to determine whether you are eligible for the Ruxience patient assistance program. Each program has its own eligibility criteria which is set by the pharmaceutical companies, however the factors considered by most programs 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 Ruxience patient assistance program?

We make it as easy as possible to apply for the Ruxience patient assistance program. The first step is to complete our enrollment application. Tell us about any medications you are taking, including Ruxience. We will also ask for details about your healthcare provider, insurance, and your household income. This information is required by the pharmaceutical manufacturers who ship your medication.

If we determine that you may be eligible for Ruxience assistance, we will handle the application process for you. We will work directly with your healthcare provider to prepare your application documents. Once we have received the signed application and supporting documents, we will submit them to the patient assistance program on your behalf. Our service continues once you are enrolled in the Ruxience patient assistance program, and we will automatically request your Ruxience medication refills for up to 1 year.

What is Ruxience?

Ruxience contains the prescription medicine rituximab that is used in adults for the treatment of:

  • Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (NHL), either on its own or in combination with other medication
  • Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL) with other medicines such as fludarabine and cyclophosphamide
  • Granulomatosis with Polyangiitis (GPA), Wegener’s Granulomatosis and Microscopic Polyangiitis (MPA) in combination with glucocorticoids

Ruxience can also be used in adults and children at least 2 years old who have certain disorders that cause inflammation of blood vessels and other tissues in the body.

Ruxience active ingredients

Rituximab-pvvr is a man-made antibody that acts directly at specific points on certain white blood cells known as lymphocytes. Rituximab causes the white blood cell to disintegrate by breaking down the wall of the cell. The exact way in which rituximab does this is not fully understood.

Ruxience is given as an IV infusion directly into a vein. It is not given daily, and your dose will depend on the condition you are receiving treatment for. Ruxience can cause serious brain infections that can lead to disability or death. You should call your doctor immediately if you experience speech, thought, vision, or muscle movement problems. These symptoms may start slowly but get worse quickly. You will need regular medical checks while you are using this medication.
