Home Find Financial Help Save on OFEV

If you need help paying for your OFEV® (nintedanib), there are programs designed to help you with your out-of-pocket costs (such as copay or deductibles).

Additionally, if you have commercial pharmacy insurance, there is nothing for you to fill out. Your doctor simply provides your Specialty Pharmacy with the information they need. They take it from there. Be sure to ask your Specialty Pharmacy about the following financial support options and which may be best for you:


If you have commercial insurance, you may be eligible for the OFEV Commercial Copay Program. The Specialty Pharmacy will determine if you are eligible when they are processing your prescription drug claim (benefits verification process).

With the OFEV Commercial Copay Program:

  • You will receive OFEV for as little as $0 per month up to a monthly cap of $11,500
  • There is no card to carry or worry about. The program is managed by the Specialty Pharmacy. Your eligibility is determined by the Specialty Pharmacy during the benefits verification process
  • You must be re-enrolled every 12 months. The Specialty Pharmacy will complete your enrollment and re-enrollment
  • People covered by any form of governmental paid insurance (Medicare, Medicaid, Tricare, etc.) are not eligible for the program. Also, people paying cash will not be eligible

Remember—OFEV is available only through a Specialty Pharmacy which specializes in rare diseases and the medicines used to treat them. They can help:

  • Arrange for financial support if you are eligible
  • Explore potential insurance benefit options
  • Coordinate delivery of your medicine
  • Offer refill assistance

If you are enrolled in a government healthcare prescription drug program, do not have insurance, or have private insurance that does not cover OFEV, other financial assistance may be available.

These independent charities typically require separate applications, have financial eligibility guidelines, and require financial documentation, such as copies of your latest tax return.
