Your monthly Vijoice cost savings if eligible

If you are eligible for the Vijoice 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 XXXX through NiceRx, you will only pay $49 a month regardless of the retail price of your medication.

Am I eligible for the Vijoice patient assistance program?

You could receive your Vijoice 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 Vijoice 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 Vijoice.

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

Is NiceRx a Vijoice coupon provider?

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

Can NiceRx help me get Vijoice cheaper 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 Vijoice medication, or if 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 Vijoice?

Vijoice is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication distributed by Novartis Pharmaceuticals Corporation. Vijoice (alpelisib) is a kinase inhibitor used to treat the symptoms of breast cancer and rare overgrowth conditions caused by the effects of PIK3CA mutations in adults and children 2 years of age and older with PIK3CA-Related Overgrowth Spectrum (PROS).

FDA approval for Vijoice was based on real-world evidence from EPIK-P1, a retrospective chart review study. In accordance with the Accelerated Approval Program, continued approval for Vijoice may be based upon verification and description of clinical benefit from confirmatory trials.

What doses of Vijoice are available?

Vijoice is available in tablet form, in the following doses: 50mg.

The usual dose for the treatment of adult patients with severe manifestations of PIK3CA-Related Overgrowth Spectrum who require systemic therapy is 250 mg, orally once daily with food.

The usual dose for pediatric patients with severe manifestations of PIK3CA-Related Overgrowth Spectrum who require systemic therapy is 50 mg orally once daily with food.

Administer the recommended dose until disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. 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.
