BENLYSTA Co-pay Program 

The BENLYSTA Co-pay Program helps eligible approved patients with their out-of-pocket costs for BENLYSTA up to $15,000 for 12 months.

If approved, you could pay as little as $0 for BENLYSTA.*


Work with your doctor to enroll in BENLYSTA Gateway or visit to get started with an eligibility check.




* Patients in government-funded programs (eg, Medicare, Medicaid, VA, or TRICARE) are not eligible for the BENLYSTA Co-pay Program. Medicare-eligible patients who are enrolled in certain retiree drug benefit plans are also ineligible for the co-pay program. (Most patients become eligible for Medicare when they reach age 65.) Click here for full program Terms & Conditions.

How will my prescription for BENLYSTA SC be filled? 


Instead of being filled at your local pharmacy, your prescription for BENLYSTA SC will be filled by a specialty pharmacy. These pharmacies focus on certain conditions and particular medications.


Before your prescription can be filled, the specialty pharmacy and your doctor will work through the approval process with your insurance company. After you’ve been approved by your insurance company to receive BENLYSTA SC, a specialty pharmacy will send BENLYSTA SC directly to you.


The specialty pharmacy may have questions for you, and they will need to collect co-pay and arrange for delivery before sending you BENLYSTA.

Please make sure to return the call from the specialty pharmacy. This call may come from a number that you do not recognize, and they may leave a voicemail that does not give too many details. This is done to protect your privacy. Any delay in returning their calls could slow down the time it will take for you to receive BENLYSTA SC.

The time it takes to receive your first dose can vary, and your experience may be a little different, depending on your insurance plan and specialty pharmacy.


For further information, contact BENLYSTA Cares at 1-877-4-BENLYSTA (1-877-423-6597) or talk with your healthcare professional.
