Am I eligible for Vyvgart patient assistance?

To be eligible for the Vyvgart patient assistance program, you will need to meet specific eligibility criteria set by the pharmaceutical company. At NiceRx, we review each Vyvgart enrollment application individually. The main factors considered 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 Vyvgart patient assistance program?

Applying for the Vyvgart patient assistance program through NiceRx is simple. Begin by completing the enrollment application on our website. We will ask for details about your healthcare provider, your insurance plan, and your household income. This information is required by the pharmaceutical manufacturers that supply your medication. We may be able to help you access patient assistance for other medications as well as Vyvgart, so please tell us about any medications that you have been prescribed.

If we determine that you may be eligible for Vyvgart assistance, we will handle the full enrollment process on your behalf. We will work with your healthcare provider to prepare and submit all the documents required for you to enroll. If you are successfully enrolled in the Vyvgart patient assistance program, we will also request your Vyvgart medication refills on your behalf for up to 1 year. At the end of your enrollment period, we will contact you for updated details and seek to re-enroll you in the program.

NiceRx does not provide Vyvgart coupons, discount cards or copay cards. We do not offer printable Vyvgart manufacturer coupons, Vyvgart discounts, rebates, Vyvgart savings cards, trial offers, or free samples. We are a service provider that helps eligible individuals access patient assistance programs. Our service cost is $49 a month per medication, so you will likely save more on your Vyvgart medication with NiceRx.

What is Vyvgart?

Vyvgart is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Argenx US, Inc. FDA approval of Vyvgart was based on results from the global Phase 3 ADAPT trial.

Vyvgart is the first treatment that uses a fragment of an IgG antibody Immunoglobulin G (IgG) antibody. It is a neonatal Fc receptor blocker (FcRn) used for the treatment of generalized myasthenia gravis (gMG) in adult patients who are anti-acetylcholine receptor (AChR) antibody positive.

Generalized MG is a rare autoimmune disease, symptoms include muscle weakness that affects the muscles of the eyes, limbs, throat, face, and jaw. Vyvgart has been awarded orphan drug status in both the U.S. and Europe as it is a treatment for rare diseases. Patients who continue long-term treatment show consistent improvement on both the myasthenia gravis activities of daily living (MG-ADL) and quantitative myasthenia gravis (QMG) scales.

What doses of Vyvgart are available?

Vyvgart is available in injection form, in the following doses: 400 mg in 20 mL (20 mg/mL) single-dose vial.

Consider the need to give age-appropriate vaccines according to immunization guidelines before initiation of a new treatment cycle with Vyvgart. The recommended dosage is 10 mg/kg as an intravenous infusion over one hour once weekly for 4 weeks. In patients weighing 120 kg or more, the recommended dose is 1200 mg per infusion. Further treatment cycles are based on clinical evaluation.

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