Your monthly Simponi Aria cost savings if eligible

If you are eligible for the Simponi Aria patient assistance program you can get your medication for free. Our monthly flat rate of $49 per medication covers the cost of our services in applying for the program and requesting your ongoing refills on your behalf. If you obtain your Simponi Aria through NiceRx, you will only pay $49 a month regardless of the retail price of your medication.

Am I eligible for the Simponi Aria patient assistance program?

You could receive your Simponi Aria without paying the full retail price if you meet the eligibility criteria for assistance. This criteria is set by the pharmaceutical companies who are providing assistance programs. At NiceRx we review each application individually, although the main 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 Simponi Aria patient assistance?

We do everything that we can to take the hassle and stress out of applying for patient assistance programs. Simply start by filling in our enrollment application. We will ask for details about your healthcare provider, your insurance, and your household income. This information is required by the pharmaceutical companies you are applying to for assistance. We may also be able to help you access patient assistance for other medications that you have been prescribed, so be sure to tell us about any medications you are taking as well as Simponi Aria.

NiceRx will review the information you have provided, and if we determine that you may be eligible for assistance, we will seek to enroll you in the Simponi Aria patient assistance program. We will handle the enrollment process for you by working with your healthcare provider and preparing all the required paperwork for your doctor to sign. We will also request your Simponi Aria medication refills on your behalf for up to 1 year once you are enrolled in the program.

Is NiceRx a Simponi Aria coupons provider?

At NiceRx, we help eligible individuals access the Simponi Aria patient assistance program. This means that we are not a Simponi Aria coupon, a Simponi Aria discount card, or a Simponi Aria copay card provider. We do not offer any medication trial offers, or free Simponi Aria samples.

Can NiceRx help me get Simponi Aria if I have insurance?

We may be able to help you if you have insurance, including if your insurance company will not pay for your Simponi Aria medication, or you have a high copay or coinsurance responsibility. We may even be able to assist if you do not have insurance. Please fill in our enrollment application to find out more.

How much is Simponi Aria with insurance?

The cost of Simponi Aria will vary in line with the specific terms of your healthcare plan. For further details about what you may need to pay, your insurance provider or pharmacist will be able to calculate the copay costs with your current insurance.

How much does Simponi Aria cost without insurance?

Simponi Aria costs without insurance will vary depending on how much you buy and the retailer you buy it from. As a guide, Simponi Aria solution (50 mg/4 mL) will typically cost around $2,100 for 4 milliliters. If you obtain your medication through NiceRx, you will pay a flat monthly rate of $49 per medication regardless of its retail price.

What is Simponi Aria?

Simponi Aria contains the prescription medicine golimumab and is used for the treatment of:

  • Ulcerative colitis in adults where other medicines have not worked or could not be tolerated
  • In combination with methotrexate, for the treatment of adult patients with moderate to severely active rheumatoid arthritis
  • Adults with active ankylosing spondylitis
  • Active psoriatic arthritis and active polyarticular juvenile idiopathic arthritis (pJIA) in people 2 years of age and older

Simponi Aria may be given as a subcutaneous injection under the skin or as an intravenous infusion into a vein. Simponi Aria can weaken your immune system so your blood will need to be tested often. It can also cause tuberculosis or hepatitis to come back or get worse if you have had them before. You should be checked for these conditions before you start treatment.

Simponi Aria active ingredients

Increased levels of TNFα (a cytokine protein) in the blood, synovium, and joints are seen in many of the chronic inflammatory diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, and ankylosing spondylitis. Golimumab is a human monoclonal antibody that binds to human TNFα in the body. This stops TNFα from attaching to its receptors and blocking its normal biological action. The exact mechanism by which golimumab stops TNFα from having its inflammatory effect is not fully understood.
