Am I eligible for the Xarelto patient assistance program?

In order to be eligible for the Xarelto patient assistance program, you will need to meet specific eligibility requirements. At NiceRx we review each Xarelto enrollment application individually, but you should know that the main factors likely to be considered will include:

  • 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 Xarelto patient assistance program?

Applying for the Xarelto patient assistance program is easy with NiceRx. The enrollment application process begins with our online form. At this stage, you will need to detail any medications you’re taking, including Xarelto. The specific information required by the pharmaceutical manufacturers who ship your medication is also needed at this stage. This includes details about your healthcare provider, your insurance plan, and your household income.

Once NiceRx determines that you may be eligible for Xarelto assistance, we’ll handle the full enrollment process for you. When enrolled in the Xarelto patient assistance program, we’ll also request your Xarelto medication refills on your behalf for up to one year.

Is NiceRx a Xarelto coupon provider?

At NiceRx, we do not provide Xarelto coupons. We believe that patient assistance programs offer a more sustainable way to help patients afford their essential medications over the long term. Patient assistance programs are sponsored by pharmaceutical manufacturers and require eligibility criteria to be met in order for patients to qualify.

NiceRx is not a Xarelto coupon, a Xarelto discount card, or a Xarelto copay card provider. We don’t offer printable Xarelto manufacturer coupons, Xarelto discounts, rebates, Xarelto savings cards, trial offers, or free Xarelto samples.

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

If you have insurance but find that your out-of-pocket costs for Xarelto are still too high, then patient assistance may be able to help. Many people who have insurance are surprised to learn that they still qualify for assistance, as their plans have high deductibles or co-pays.

At NiceRx, we can help you enroll in the Xarelto patient assistance program even if you have insurance. We will review your individual case and determine if you’re eligible for assistance.

If you’re not eligible for the Xarelto patient assistance program, we may still be able to assist you in several scenarios even if you have insurance. This includes if your insurance company won’t pay for your Xarelto medication, or you have a high copay or coinsurance responsibility. You may even be eligible for Xarelto assistance if you don’t have insurance or your Medicare plan doesn’t cover Xarelto. Apply online with NiceRx to find out more.

How much is Xarelto with insurance?

The retail price of Xarelto will vary by healthcare plan. Your pharmacist or insurance provider will be able to calculate your copay with your current insurance. Contact them to understand what you will need to pay for Xarelto with insurance.

How much does Xarelto cost without insurance?

Xarelto cash prices without insurance coverage will vary depending on whether you buy the oral kit or the oral tablets. If you buy the oral tablets, prices will also vary depending on the pack size you buy. Prices can also vary by retailer. As a guide, a pack of 30, 20 mg Xarelto tablets will cost around $620.

What is Xarelto?

Xarelto (rivaroxaban) is an FDA-approved prescription blood thinner (anticoagulant) medication used to treat deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE). It’s used to reduce the risk of DVT and PE recurring. Xarelto belongs to a class of medications called Factor Xa inhibitors which reduce the chance of blood clots happening and also reduce the risk of coronary heart disease and peripheral artery disease.

It’s prescribed specifically to:

  • Reduce the chances of a blood clot forming in people who have a condition called atrial fibrillation (if it’s not caused by a heart valve problem)
  • Reduce the chances of a blood clot forming and causing deep vein thrombosis or a pulmonary embolism
  • Reduce the chances of a blood clot forming again in people who are at risk of blood clots after having been treated for them for at least six months
  • Reduce the chances of a blood clot forming in people who have had knee replacement surgery
  • Reduce the chances of a blood clot forming in people who have reduced mobility and may lie or sit still for long periods. This is usually after someone is hospitalized for an acute illness or major surgery, and as they recuperate after they’ve been discharged
  • Reduce the risk of serious heart problems, heart attacks, or strokes in people with coronary artery disease
  • Reduce the risk of serious heart problems, heart attacks, or strokes in people with peripheral artery disease

You may also be prescribed Xarelto if you have coronary artery disease or peripheral artery disease. Xarelto comes as a tablet that you swallow. Your dose, and how often you take your Xarelto, will be decided upon by the doctor who prescribes it to you.

What doses of Xarelto are available?

Xarelto is available in two different oral tablet strengths:

  • Xarelto 2.5mg – white, oblong-shaped tablets with “BAYER” on one side and “2.5” on the other side.
  • Xarelto 10mg – white, round tablets with “BAYER” on one side and “10” on the other side.
  • Xarelto 15 mg – these are white, round tablets debossed with “15” on one side and plain on the other side.
  • Xarelto 20 mg – these are yellow, round tablets debossed with “20” on one side and plain on the other side.

For additional safety information, read the full prescribing information and medication guide. Always speak with a healthcare professional for medical advice or about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.

More information on Xarelto dosage

Xarelto active ingredients

The active ingredient in Xarelto is called rivaroxaban. It’s an anticoagulant drug, also called a blood thinner, that reduces the likelihood of clots forming in your blood.

When your blood clots, it goes through a chemical process that turns from a liquid to a thick gel. This chemical process is complex and has a number of steps that happen in sequence. Rivaroxaban works by interrupting one of these steps.

When you take Xarelto, rivaroxaban is absorbed into your blood. It attaches itself to and blocks an enzyme in your blood, called Factor Xa. This enzyme controls a step in the clotting process, and by blocking it, rivaroxaban makes it less likely your blood will clot.

Xarelto side effects

The most common side effects of Xarelto are:

  • nosebleeds
  • indigestion
  • muscle pain
  • stomach pain or discomfort
  • diarrhea

These aren’t all the possible side effects of Xarelto. For more information, ask your doctor or healthcare professional about other potential side effects or consult the

Xarelto drug interactions

Xarelto can interact with other medications, herbs, or vitamins you might be taking. These interactions could increase your risk of bleeding or cause other serious side effects.

In rare instances, Xarelto can cause more serious side effects, including:

  • Severe allergic reactions to the medication
  • An increased risk of serious bleeding that won’t stop, like a hemorrhage (bleeding from a ruptured blood vessel)
  • An increased risk of spinal or epidural hematoma (bleeding and blood clots in your spine) in patients who take Xarelto and who receive a spinal puncture or local anesthetic injection around their spine – this could result in paralysis

  • Any other anticoagulant medications
