We make it as easy as possible to apply for the Enbrel patient assistance program. Every application must begin with our enrollment application. At the start of your application you will need to tell us about any medications you’re taking, including Enbrel. We’ll also need full details of your healthcare provider, insurance, and your household income. This important information is a fundamental part of the application process and is required by the pharmaceutical manufacturers that ship your medication.

Prescription Care is not an Enbrel coupon, an Enbrel discount card, or an Enbrel copay card. We do not provide Enbrel samples, Enbrel savings cards, printable Enbrel manufacturer coupons, or Enbrel discount coupons.

Can Prescription Care help me get Enbrel if I have insurance? 

Every case is different. This means that you may still be eligible even if you don’t have insurance, your insurance company won’t pay for your Enbrel medication, or you have a high copay or coinsurance responsibility.

Enbrel costs vary by healthcare plan. To understand what you may be charged speak to a pharmacist or contact your healthcare provider. 

How much does Enbrel cost without insurance?

Enbrel prices without insurance will vary depending on the strength of the Enbrel you buy and where you buy it from. As a guide, you can expect to pay close to $5,000 for a month’s supply (28 days)

What is Enbrel?

Enbrel is a medication prescribed to treat the following autoimmune diseases:

  • Moderate to severe rheumatoid arthritis
  • Moderate to severe polyarticular juvenile idiopathic arthritis (joint pain and inflammation in children and adolescents with more than 4 joints affected)
  • Ankylosing spondylitis (inflammation of joints in the spine).
  • Psoriatic arthritis
  • Moderate to severe chronic plaque psoriasis (long term patches of skin plaques) 

Your immune system kills and removes harmful pathogens that can make you ill and helps you recover from injuries. However, sometimes your immune system can mistakenly attack healthy parts of your body, causing an autoimmune disease. Many of these autoimmune diseases cause inflammation.

Inflammation is a vital part of your immune system’s response to infection. It signals to your body to defend itself and that repair is needed. However, inflammation in healthy tissue, especially if it persists, can cause damage. Rheumatoid arthritis is caused by chronic inflammation in your joints, whilst ankylosing spondylitis is caused by chronic inflammation in your spine.

Enbrel helps treat autoimmune conditions by reducing inflammation. This helps to ease the symptoms of these diseases and limits the damage they can cause. Enbrel is injected under the skin using a pre-filled MYCLIC injection pen.

Enbrel active ingredients

The active ingredient in Enbrel is called etanercept. It helps to treat certain autoimmune diseases by reducing the inflammation they cause. Your immune system triggers inflammation by releasing a signaling molecule called TNF-alpha. This molecule attaches itself to areas inside your cells, beginning the process that causes inflammation. The active ingredient etanercept stops this from happening. It attaches itself to TNF-alpha molecules, stopping them from working. This halts the inflammation process before it’s even started.

Enbrel side effects & Enbrel drug interactions

Those that take Enbrel can experience side effects. Around 1 in 10 people who take it may experience the most common Enbrel side effects. They include an increased rate of infections like colds, sinusitis, bronchitis, urinary tract infections, and skin infections; and reactions at the site of injection, including bleeding, bruising, redness, itching, pain, and swelling.

In rarer cases, Enbrel can cause more serious side effects. These can include serious infections, blood and nerve disorders, heart failure, inflammation of the blood vessels, and autoimmune reactions. 

If you’re taking a range of medications, interactions may occur. If this happens it can alter how the medication works and make certain side effects more likely. Medicines that may interact with Enbrel include those containing the active ingredients:

  • Anakinra, like Kineret
  • Abatacept, like Orencia
  • Sulfasalazine, like Azulfidine, Salazopyrin, and Sulazine
