MEDICARE/GOVERNMENT INSURED

Help identifying resources for eligible patients with Medicare/Medicare Part D, Medicaid, and other government insurance plans:

  • Assistance for patients with searching for financial support that may be available from independent charitable foundations. These foundations exist independently of Pfizer and have their own eligibility criteria and application processes. Availability of support from the foundations is determined solely by the foundations
  • Financial assistance through Extra Help, a Medicare Part D Low-Income Subsidy (LIS) program
  • Free medication

UNINSURED

Help identifying resources for eligible patients without any form of healthcare coverage:

  • Help finding coverage
  • Free medication through the Pfizer Patient Assistance Program, or at a savings through the Pfizer Savings Program

    †If support from independent charitable foundations or Medicare Extra Help is not available, Pfizer Oncology Together will provide eligible patients with medication for free through the Pfizer Patient Assistance Program. The Pfizer Patient Assistance Program is a joint program of Pfizer Inc. and the Pfizer Patient Assistance Foundation™. The Pfizer Patient Assistance Foundation is a separate legal entity from Pfizer Inc. with distinct legal restrictions.

    ‡​​​​​​​The Pfizer Savings Program is not health insurance. For more information, call the toll-free number 1-877-744-5675. There are no membership fees to participate in this program. Estimated savings are 50% and depend on such factors as the particular drug purchased, amount purchased, and the pharmacy where purchased.

Access & Reimbursement Support

If patients prescribed INLYTA need access or reimbursement support, Pfizer Oncology Together is here to help with:

  • Benefits verification:
    We can help determine a patient’s coverage and out-of-pocket costs
  • Prior authorization (PA) assistance:
    We can coordinate with a patient’s insurer to determine the PA requirements. After your office submits a PA request, we’ll follow up with the payer until a final outcome is determined
  • Appeals assistance:
    We can review the reasons for a denied claim and provide information on payer requirements. After your office submits an appeal, we’ll follow up with the payer until a final outcome is determined
  • Specialty pharmacy coordination:
    To help your patients access the medication you’ve prescribed, we can identify specialty pharmacy options. If you prefer, you and your staff can also continue to work directly with specialty pharmacies
  • Dedicated local support:
    Pfizer Oncology Account Specialists can provide detailed information on Pfizer Oncology medications and access resources. In addition, they can help you and your office staff contact a Pfizer Oncology Field Reimbursement Manager (FRM) in your area


    ​​​​​​​FRMs are trained to help address specific access issues—in person or over the phone. They can help educate your staff on our access and reimbursement resources and help address challenging or urgent Pfizer Oncology patient cases you have sent to Pfizer Oncology Together.

Personalized Patient Support

When your patients need support for their day-to-day challenges, we want to be a place they can turn to for help. At Pfizer Oncology Together, our Care Champions, who have social work experience, can connect patients prescribed INLYTA to resources that may help with some of their daily needs.§


  • Emotional Support We can connect patients to diagnosis-specific support groups, an independent organization that offers short-term counseling, and a free app, developed by Pfizer Oncology, to help patients connect with loved ones and ask for the support they need
  • Educational Support To help support patients’ overall health and well-being, we’ve created resources about physical and mental health, as well as nutritional tips and healthy recipes developed in partnership with dietitians who specialize in oncology nutrition. We can also provide patients with information to help them understand their prescribed INLYTA
  • Practical Support If patients need assistance with transportation or lodging for treatment-related appointments, we’ll connect them to independent organizations that offer these services for free to qualifying patients

    ​​​​​​​And if your patients are leaving work for a period of time during treatment, or preparing to return to work, we can send them information to help make the transition easier.

Hypertension including hypertensive crisis has been observed. Blood pressure should be well controlled prior to initiating INLYTA. Monitor for hypertension and treat as needed. For persistent hypertension despite use of antihypertensive medications, reduce the dose. Discontinue INLYTA if hypertension is severe and persistent despite use of antihypertensive therapy and dose reduction of INLYTA, and discontinuation should be considered if there is evidence of hypertensive crisis.

Arterial and venous thrombotic events have been observed and can be fatal. Use with caution in patients who are at increased risk for, or who have a history of, these events.

Hemorrhagic events, including fatal events, have been reported. INLYTA has not been studied in patients with evidence of untreated brain metastasis or recent active gastrointestinal bleeding and should not be used in those patients. If any bleeding requires medical intervention, temporarily interrupt the INLYTA dose.

Cardiac failure has been observed and can be fatal. Monitor for signs or symptoms of cardiac failure throughout treatment with INLYTA. Management of cardiac failure may require permanent discontinuation of INLYTA.

Gastrointestinal perforation and fistula, including death, have occurred. Use with caution in patients at risk for gastrointestinal perforation or fistula. Monitor for symptoms of gastrointestinal perforation or fistula periodically throughout treatment.

Hypothyroidism requiring thyroid hormone replacement has been reported. Monitor thyroid function before initiation of, and periodically throughout, treatment.

INLYTA has the potential to adversely affect wound healing. Withhold INLYTA for at least 2 days prior to elective surgery. Do not administer INLYTA for at least 2 weeks following major surgery and until adequate wound healing. The safety of resuming INLYTA after resolution of wound healing complications has not been established.

Reversible Posterior Leukoencephalopathy Syndrome (RPLS) has been observed. If signs or symptoms occur, permanently discontinue treatment.

Monitor for proteinuria before initiation of, and periodically throughout, treatment. For moderate to severe proteinuria, reduce the dose or temporarily interrupt treatment with INLYTA.

Liver enzyme elevation has occurred during treatment with INLYTA as a single agent. INLYTA in combination with pembrolizumab can cause hepatotoxicity with higher than expected frequencies of Grades 3 and 4 alanine aminotransferase (ALT) and aspartate aminotransferase (AST) elevation. Monitor ALT, AST, and bilirubin before initiation of and periodically throughout treatment. Consider more frequent monitoring of liver enzymes as compared to when the drugs are used for monotherapy. Consider withholding INLYTA and/or pembrolizumab, initiating corticosteroid therapy, and/or permanently discontinuing the combination for severe or life-threatening hepatotoxicity.

For patients with moderate hepatic impairment, the starting dose of INLYTA should be decreased. INLYTA has not been studied in patients with severe hepatic impairment.

INLYTA can cause fetal harm. Advise patients of the potential risk to the fetus and to use effective contraception. When INLYTA is used in combination with pembrolizumab, refer to the full Prescribing Information of pembrolizumab for pregnancy and contraception information.

Avoid strong CYP3A4/5 inhibitors. If unavoidable, reduce the dose of INLYTA. Grapefruit or grapefruit juice may also increase INLYTA plasma concentrations and should be avoided.

Avoid strong CYP3A4/5 inducers and, if possible, avoid moderate CYP3A4/5 inducers.
