What is Orencia?
Orencia (abatacept) is used to alleviate the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis and psoriatic arthritis, though it cannot cure them or any other autoimmune disorders. These are disorders in which the immune system that is the body’s defense against infection attacks healthy cells as though they were foreign invaders. Orencia is a protein that prevents the immune system from mistaking healthy cells for something dangerous.
Orencia is administered by injection, usually once every 1-4 weeks. It is important to notify your doctor if you have a weakened immune system before taking Orencia.
What does Simplefill Provide?
Simplefill helps those who are having a hard time paying for the medication they need to manage chronic conditions like rheumatoid arthritis. While there may be no cure for such conditions, medications like Orencia can provide a great deal of symptomatic relief, but only if the patient can afford to pay for it.
Even people who have health insurance may not be able to pay the mounting cost of monthly copays for an extended period. And that financial burden only increases the stress of managing a painful chronic condition.
Simplefill will ease that stress by searching Orencia assistance programs for U.S. patients and getting you help paying for your prescription.
How does Orencia Work?
Orencia is an immunosuppressant that’s manufactured through recombinant DNA technology. It acts on the immune system’s T-lymphocyte cells. In people with rheumatoid arthritis, T-lymphocytes within the joints are inflamed, and the chemicals they release break down the surrounding tissues. Orencia acts like an antibody by attaching to a protein on the T-lymphocytes and prevents them from multiplying and releasing those harmful chemicals. Not only does Orencia provide symptomatic release, but it also slows progressive damage to the joints and improves physical function.
