How it works
Get started by filling out the online enrollment application to find out if you are eligible for assistance.
NiceRx verifies your eligibility for medication assistance and notifies you if you are pre-qualified. The pharmaceutical company provides your medication for free, and you only pay our service fee.
We will request documents to be submitted by you and your healthcare provider that are required by the pharmaceutical company to complete your enrollment.
Once approved, the pharmaceutical company typically ships a 90-day supply of medication to your home or healthcare provider’s address. Final acceptance is determined by the pharmaceutical company.
Your monthly Venclexta cost savings if eligible
If you are eligible for the Venclexta 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 Venclexta through NiceRx, you will only pay $49 a month regardless of the retail price of your medication.
Am I eligible for the Venclexta patient assistance program?
You could receive your Venclexta 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 Venclexta 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 Venclexta.
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 Venclexta 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 Venclexta medication refills on your behalf for up to 1 year once you are enrolled in the program.
Is NiceRx a Venclexta coupons provider?
At NiceRx, we help eligible individuals access the Venclexta patient assistance program. This means that we are not a Venclexta coupon, a Venclexta discount card, or a Venclexta copay card provider. We do not offer any medication trial offers, or free Venclexta samples.
Can NiceRx help me get Venclexta 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 Venclexta 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 Venclexta with insurance?
The cost of Venclexta 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 Venclexta cost without insurance?
Venclexta costs without insurance will vary depending on how many you buy and the retailer you buy it from. As a guide, 1 Venclexta tablet 100 mg will typically cost around $120. 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 Venclexta?
Venclexta contains the prescription medicine venetoclax, classed as a B-cell lymphoma-2 (BCL-2) inhibitor.
Venetoclax can be used alone or in combination with rituximab for the treatment of adults with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) or small lymphocytic lymphoma (SLL), or in combination with azacitidine, decitabine, or cytarabine for the treatment of adults with newly diagnosed acute myeloid leukemia (AML) who are 75 years of age or older, or have other medical conditions that do not allow the use of other chemotherapy.
Your first dose of venetoclax may be given to you in a hospital or clinic setting just in case you have serious side effects that need treating. The tablets should be taken whole with food and water at the same time each day, and not crushed or chewed. You will need to drink 6 to 8 glasses of water daily for 2 days before you start taking Venclexta, on the first day you take them and when your dose is changed, to stop certain side effects. Your blood will be tested on a regular basis as venetoclax can reduce your blood cell count.
Venclexta active ingredients
Venetoclax specifically blocks the action of BCL-2, a naturally occurring protein in the body. In conditions such as CLL and AML excess amounts of BCL-2 have been seen to be produced. BCL-2 helps tumor cells to resist being destroyed by chemotherapy.
By attaching to BCL-2, venetoclax allows the natural cycle of cell death to resume, by allowing certain enzymes to carry out their normal function of destroying cells. Venetoclax has been shown in studies to be toxic to tumor cells that have high BCL-2 levels.
