Hear from Nicole, a real patient with lupus receiving BENLYSTA, and discover the resources this website has to offer!

Hey there, welcome. You’ve just landed on the Savings and Support page.

I’m Nicole and I’m an actual lupus patient receiving BENLYSTA.

I was diagnosed with lupus in 2011. Navigating treatment costs and available support can be overwhelming and stressful. I’ve been there. But I’m here to help walk you through some great resources provided by BENLYSTA that may help lighten the load.

Living with lupus is challenging. And when you add in figuring out treatment options and how to pay for it all… well, it can be stressful, and for me, stress can lead to a flare. So I try to educate myself as much as possible to help myself stay calm.

Although, feeling stressed during this process is completely normal. The good news is, there are people and resources available to help you navigate the waters and may help you feel a little bit better. One of those is the BENLYSTA Savings and Support page. I’m here to help break things down for you a bit and let you know exactly what information you can find on this page.

On the BENLYSTA Savings and Support page you will find BENLYSTA Cares. BENLYSTA Cares was created just for lupus patients like us. It’s here to help you figure out your co-pay options, discover how much insurance coverage you may have, access co-pay resources, connect with trained nurses, and so much more.

The “Injection Support” resource. You can get direct access to an injection training video to help you feel more confident and informed about the process.

There is even a list of frequently asked questions with questions like, “Which specialty pharmacy can I expect a phone call from? How can I get some more information about BENLYSTA?”

The more educated you are before beginning a medication, the better. And not just by searching online, because that’s a very easy way to scare yourself. Explore the brand site and take notes. There is so much information available and they’re more than willing to help you become as educated as possible. You can even talk to someone on the phone if you’d prefer that over being online. One piece of advice: Don’t be afraid to reach out. Educating yourself make you feel empowered and really help put your mind at ease.

So if you’re interested in learning more and being a part of BENLYSTA Cares, a program that helps find and navigate various financial support resources and educational tools, here’s how to enroll. Simply click on BENLYSTA Cares on and sign up. Get the support that you need today.

And they can direct you to representatives who may be able to help you get coverage information and access co-pay savings.
