Your monthly Tibsovo cost savings if eligible

If you are eligible for the Tibsovo patient assistance program you can receive your medication for free. Our monthly service fee 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 Tibsovo through NiceRx, you will only pay $49 a month regardless of the retail price of your medication.

Am I eligible for the Tibsovo patient assistance program?

You could receive your Tibsovo without paying the full retail price if you meet the eligibility criteria for assistance. The eligibility requirements are set by the pharmaceutical companies that 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 Tibsovo 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 Tibsovo.

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 Tibsovo 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 Tibsovo medication refills on your behalf for up to 1 year once you are enrolled in the program.

Is NiceRx a Tibsovo coupons provider?

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

Can NiceRx help me get Tibsovo 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 Tibsovo 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.

What is Tibsovo?

Tibsovo, an isocitrate dehydrogenase-1 (IDH1) inhibitor, manufactured by Agios Pharmaceuticals, Inc. It has FDA approval (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) for the treatment of adult patients with a susceptible IDH1 mutation with:

  • Acute myeloid leukemia (AML)
  • Newly-diagnosed AML in adults who are 75 years of age or older or who have comorbidities that preclude the use of intensive induction chemotherapy
  • Relapsed or refractory acute myeloid leukemia
  • Locally advanced or metastatic cholangiocarcinoma
  • Locally advanced or metastatic cholangiocarcinoma who have been previously treated

Tibsovo targets a specific gene mutation called IDH1, which can affect your bone marrow. IDH1 mutation stops young blood cells from developing into healthy adult blood cells. This can result in the symptoms of acute myeloid leukemia (AML).

Patients treated with Tibsovo have experienced symptoms of differentiation syndrome. This is a condition that affects your blood cells and may be life-threatening and can be fatal if not treated. If differentiation syndrome is suspected, corticosteroid therapy should be initiated and hemodynamic monitoring until symptom resolution. See full prescribing information for a complete boxed warning and medication guide.

What doses of Tibsovo are available?

Tibsovo is available in tablet form, in the following doses: 250 mg.

500 mg orally once daily with or without food until disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. You should avoid a high-fat meal.

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