Is your Saphnelo medication too expensive?

The four options you have to save money on Saphnelo

There are four main ways to save money on out-of-pocket costs when it comes to prescription medication.

  1. Join a healthcare plan with prescription drug coverage (Please make sure the medication you are taking is in the insurance formulary.)
  2. Prescription drug discount cards
  3. Coupon cards that are directly for the pharmaceutical manufacturer
  4. Patient assistance programs, which are also directly from the pharmaceutical manufacturer

Now that we have given you the four main medication savings programs, there are a few hurdles to go over in each of those areas. We will be quick about this…

When you join a health insurance program, you will have high deductibles, copays, and things of that nature.

When you have prescription drug discount cards, the discounts are uneven all across the board.

Coupons sponsored directly from the pharmaceutical manufacturer specifically for brand-name medications are excellent in the short run. For the long term, there is a lot of money still left out of your pocket…

Last are the pharmaceutical manufacturer’s patient assistance programs that give away FREE medication to individuals who qualify, which provides unmatched medication savings for the long term.

The downside to patient assistance programs is that the first shipment of medication takes, on average, 2 to 4 weeks to reach the patient. Also, managing medication orders and refills can be a daunting task, especially with the shipping times.

Do I qualify for Saphnelo patient assistance programs?

Qualifying for Saphnelo patient assistance programs is based on household income guidelines. Every patient assistance program uses different criteria for qualification, so we use the information below as general guidelines:

  • An individual earning up to $50,000 a year may qualify
  • Households of 2 individuals with a combined income up to $70,000 a year may qualify
  • Guidelines can increase in families making up to $200,000 per year

Prescription Hope suggests that anyone looking to save money on Saphnelo submit an enrollment form.

Suppose you do not qualify to receive medication through patient assistance programs. In that case, we will never charge a service fee for that medication. Once you have been pre-qualified and your first charge has been paid but we find we can’t get your medication, you will be refunded any service fees paid for the medication.

Soon after submitting an enrollment form, we will determine whether you qualify to receive the medications you have requested through patient assistance programs.

Suppose we find a program that will work for you. In that case, we will reach out to you for any additional information needed and reach out to your healthcare provider for the prescription.

Once we receive this information back, we immediately order your medication for you. After that, Prescription Hope works to manage medication orders, refill medications on time throughout the year, maintain up-to-date records, and renew your prescription medication’s enrollment every year.

Once your enrollment form is submitted and you are pre-qualified, the first shipment of prescription medication typically arrives within 2 to 4 weeks. We will then place refills ahead of time so that you receive your medication on a regular schedule.

During the four to six week enrollment period, we recommend that you ask your healthcare provider if they could provide you with Saphnelo samples while waiting for your first shipment.

Through our program, Americans save thousands every year from the retail cost of their prescription medications through Prescription Hope. To learn more about how Prescription Hope works you can visit our website.

What is Saphnelo (anifrolumab)?

Saphnelo is an FDA-approved prescription medication that is used to treat severe systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). It’s the first and only treatment that targets the type 1 interferon (IFN-1) activity, which is a central mediator of SLE.

This medication is not indicated for severe active lupus nephritis or severe active central nervous system lupus.

  • Hypersensitivity Reaction: Hypersensitivity reactions, including anaphylaxis, have been reported after receiving treatment. Saphnelo should be administered by a healthcare provider that is prepared to treat hypersensitivity reactions.
  • Malignancy: Malignancy is a condition in which abnormal cells divide without control and can invade nearby tissues. There is an increased risk of malignancy when using immunosuppressants.
  • Immunization: Avoid administration of live or live-attenuated vaccines when being treated with Saphnelo.
