Terms and Conditions

This HEMLIBRA Co-pay Program is valid ONLY for patients with commercial (private or non-governmental) insurance who have a valid prescription for a Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved indication of a Genentech medication. Patients using Medicare, Medicaid, Medigap, Veteran's Affairs (VA), Department of Defense (DoD), TRICARE or any other federal or state government program (collectively, "Government Programs") to pay for their medications are not eligible. The program is not valid for medications that are eligible to be reimbursed in their entirety by private insurance plans or other programs.

Under the program, the patient will pay a co-pay. After reaching the maximum program benefit, the patient will be responsible for all remaining out-of-pocket expenses. This program is not health insurance or a benefit plan. The program does not obligate the use of any specific product or provider. Patients receiving assistance from charitable assistance programs (such as Genentech Patient Foundation) are not eligible. The co-pay benefit cannot be combined with any other rebate, free trial or similar offer for the medication. No party may seek reimbursement for all or any part of the benefit received through this program.

The program may be accepted by participating pharmacies, physician offices or hospitals. Once a patient is enrolled, this program will not honor claims with date of service or medication dispensing that precede program enrollment by more than 180 days. Use of this program must be consistent with all relevant health insurance requirements. Participating patients, pharmacies, physician offices and hospitals are responsible for reporting the receipt of all program benefits as required by any insurer or by law. Program benefits may not be sold, purchased, traded or offered for sale.

The patient or their guardian must be 18 years or older to receive program assistance. This program is only valid in the United States and U.S. Territories. This program is void where prohibited by law and shall follow state restrictions in relation to AB-rated generic equivalents (e.g., MA, CA) where applicable. Program eligibility is contingent upon the patient's ability to meet and maintain all requirements set forth by the program. Genentech reserves the right to rescind, revoke or amend the program without notice at any time.

Indication and Important Safety Information

 

What is HEMLIBRA?

HEMLIBRA is a prescription medicine used for routine prophylaxis to prevent or reduce the frequency of bleeding episodes in adults and children, ages newborn and older, with hemophilia A with or without factor VIII inhibitors.

What is the most important information I should know about HEMLIBRA?

HEMLIBRA increases the potential for your blood to clot. People who use activated prothrombin complex concentrate (aPCC; Feiba®) to treat breakthrough bleeds while taking HEMLIBRA may be at risk of serious side effects related to blood clots.

These serious side effects include:

  • Thrombotic microangiopathy (TMA), a condition involving blood clots and injury to small blood vessels that may cause harm to your kidneys, brain, and other organs
  • Blood clots (thrombotic events), which may form in blood vessels in your arm, leg, lung, or head

Carefully follow your healthcare provider's instructions regarding when to use an on-demand bypassing agent or factor VIII, and the dose and schedule to use for breakthrough bleed treatment. If aPCC (Feiba®) is needed, talk to your healthcare provider in case you feel you need more than 100 U/kg of aPCC (Feiba®) total.

The most common side effects of HEMLIBRA include: injection site reactions (redness, tenderness, warmth, or itching at the site of injection), headache, and joint pain. These are not all of the possible side effects of HEMLIBRA. You can speak with your healthcare provider for more information.

What else should I know about HEMLIBRA?

See the detailed "Instructions for Use" that comes with your HEMLIBRA for information on how to prepare and inject a dose of HEMLIBRA, and how to properly throw away (dispose of) used needles and syringes.

  • Stop taking your prophylactic bypassing therapy the day before you start HEMLIBRA
  • You may continue taking your prophylactic factor VIII for the first week of HEMLIBRA

HEMLIBRA may interfere with laboratory tests that measure how well your blood is clotting and create an inaccurate result. Speak with your healthcare provider about how this may affect your care.

These are not all of the possible side effects of HEMLIBRA. Speak to your healthcare provider for medical advice about side effects.

Side effects may be reported to the FDA at (800) FDA-1088 or www.fda.gov/medwatch. You may also report side effects to Genentech at (888) 835-2555.
