Your monthly Vabysmo cost savings if eligible

The Vabysmo 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 Vabysmo, regardless of the retail price.

Am I eligible for the Vabysmo patient assistance program?

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

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

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

Is NiceRx a Vabysmo coupon provider?

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

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

NiceRx may be able to help you if your insurance company will not pay for your Vabysmo 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 Vabysmo cost with insurance?

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

What is Vabysmo?

Vabysmo, the first bispecific antibody for the eye, is a vascular endothelial growth factor A (VEGF-A) and angiopoietin-2 (Ang-2) inhibitor indicated for the treatment of patients with, Neovascular wet Age-Related Macular Degeneration, wet AMD (when abnormal blood vessels grow under the retina), and Diabetic Macular Edema (DME).

Vabysmo is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Genentech a subsidiary of the Roche group. FDA Approval of Vabysmo was based on findings from four studies. In the Avonelle-X study, an extension of the Tenaya and Lucerne studies, patients with AMD were randomized to receive the study drug or aflibercept. In the Rhone-X study, an extension of the Yosemite and Rhine studies, patients with DME were randomized to receive aflibercept every 8 weeks or the same-dose Vabysmo every 8 weeks or every 4 weeks. The primary endpoint was a change in visual acuity from baseline at 1 year. Findings from these studies showed that Vabysmo was non-inferior to aflibercept.

What doses of Vabysmo are available?

Vabysmo is available in injection form, in the following doses: 120 mg/mL solution in a single-dose vial.

Please read the full prescribing information and always speak with your healthcare provider about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.
