Simplefill is committed to helping Americans who are struggling to pay for the prescription medications they need to manage chronic medical conditions, such as multiple myeloma. Continue reading to learn about our Kyprolis patient assistance program, and apply today.
What Is Kyprolis?
Kyprolis (carfizomib) is a medication used to treat a type of cancer—multiple myeloma—in patients who have experienced disease progression after prior therapies. Multiple myeloma is a cancer of the plasma cells in bone marrow. It is administered intravenously in a health care setting by a medical professional.
What Does Simplefill Provide?
If diagnosed early, multiple myeloma need no longer be a death sentence. Thanks to new drugs like Kyprolis, it can be treated as a chronic disease. That’s great news, as long as patients can afford the treatments. Even people with prescription coverage may find that the medication they need is not covered or that the copay is beyond their reach, bringing their survival into question.
Simplefill tackles the issue of high U.S. prescription costs by raising awareness of prescription assistance. We also serve as a bridge to connect people in need of help paying for their prescriptions with the programs and organization offering prescription assistance.
How Does Kyprolis Work?
Kyprolis binds irreversibly with the proteasomes in the nuclei of myeloma cells. Proteasomes are protein complexes that break down damaged proteins within cells through a chemical reaction. As a proteasome inhibitor, Kyprolis blocks the action of the proteasomes it binds with, which causes a buildup of proteins inside the cells, resulting in cell death.
How to Get Kyprolis Prescription Assistance
It’s easier than you may think to get Kyprolis prescription assistance. The prerequisite is becoming a Simplefill member by applying online or calling 1(877)386-0206. Within hours, you’ll get a call from one of our patient advocates, who will engage you in a brief interview about your prescriptions, finances, and insurance status.
That’s all it takes from you. We’ll handle everything else. Specifically, we will:
- Construct your Simplefill member profile using the information you gave to our patient advocate,
- Use your profile as the basis for identifying the prescription assistance programs most likely to meet your needs,

- Get you reenrolled when you have been accepted.
In what will seem like no time at all, you’ll be paying little or perhaps even nothing for your Kyprolis.
We’ll remain by your side as long as you need our help. We’ll make sure you continue to receive prescription assistance for your Kyprolis. And if changes occur in your life—in your medical treatment, financial circumstances, or insurance status, we will update your profile accordingly. If new medications are prescribed for you, we will also start the process to find you any additional prescription assistance you may need.
