IncyteCARES (Connecting to Access, Reimbursement, Education and Support) is a program designed to offer ongoing support and resources during your treatment with Jakafi.

Enter your information in the fields below, check the authorization box, and then click Submit.

If you have already given your Healthcare Professional a signed copy of your paper enrollment form, you do not need to complete this online authorization. If you have any questions about the enrollment process or IncyteCARES, please call 1-855-452-5234, Monday through Friday, AM–8 PM ET.

All fields are required unless noted.

I authorize my Healthcare Professional (eg, physicians, pharmacies) and my insurance company to disclose personal health information about me, including information related to my medical condition and treatment, my health insurance coverage, and my address, email address, and telephone number (collectively, my "PHI") to Incyte, its agents, and the IncyteCARES Program (collectively, "Incyte") so that Incyte may use the information for purposes of: (i) assisting in my enrollment in IncyteCARES; (ii) assessing my eligibility for co-pay assistance or free drug or referring me to other programs or sources of funding and financial support; (iii) coordinating delivery of Jakafi® (ruxolitinib) to me or my Healthcare Professional; (iv) providing education, information on Incyte products and services, and ongoing support services to me related to Jakafi; (v) gathering feedback on my therapy and/or disease state; (vi) contacting me by mail, email, phone, or fax for any of the above purposes; and (vii) creating information that does not identify me personally for use for other legitimate purposes. I understand that my pharmacy providers may receive remuneration for making such disclosures. I also authorize my Healthcare Professionals and my insurance company to use my PHI to communicate with me about Incyte products and services and I understand that they may receive remuneration for making such communications. I understand that, once disclosed pursuant to this authorization, my PHI may no longer be protected under federal or state law and could be disclosed by Incyte to others, but I understand that Incyte will make reasonable efforts to keep it private and to disclose it only for the purposes set forth in this authorization.

I understand that I do not have to sign this authorization to obtain healthcare treatment or benefits; however, in order to receive the services and communications described above, I must sign the authorization. I understand that I may cancel my authorization at any time by contacting IncyteCARES at 1-855-452-5234 or by mail at PO Box 221798, Charlotte, NC 28222-1798. My cancellation of this authorization will be effective when my Healthcare Professionals and insurance companies are notified of its receipt by Incyte, but will not apply to PHI already used or disclosed in reliance upon this authorization.

I understand that I have a right to receive a copy of this authorization.

This authorization expires one year after I submit the form (by clicking below) unless I cancel it before then.

By checking the box and clicking submit below you are signing the Patient Authorization.

Jakafi is a prescription medicine used to treat adults with polycythemia vera who have already taken a medicine called hydroxyurea and it did not work well enough or they could not tolerate it.

Jakafi is used to treat adults with certain types of myelofibrosis.

Jakafi is also used to treat adults and children 12 years of age and older with acute graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) who have taken corticosteroids and they did not work well enough.



Low blood counts: Jakafi® (ruxolitinib) may cause your platelet, red blood cell, or white blood cell counts to be lowered. If you develop bleeding, stop taking Jakafi and call your healthcare provider. Your healthcare provider will perform blood tests to check your blood counts before you start Jakafi and regularly during your treatment. Your healthcare provider may change your dose of Jakafi or stop your treatment based on the results of your blood tests. Tell your healthcare provider right away if you develop or have worsening symptoms such as unusual bleeding, bruising, tiredness, shortness of breath, or a fever.

Infection: You may be at risk for developing a serious infection during treatment with Jakafi. Tell your healthcare provider if you develop any of the following symptoms of infection: chills, nausea, vomiting, aches, weakness, fever, painful skin rash or blisters.

Skin cancers: Some people who take Jakafi have developed certain types of non-melanoma skin cancers. Tell your healthcare provider if you develop any new or changing skin lesions.

Increases in cholesterol: You may have changes in your blood cholesterol levels. Your healthcare provider will do blood tests to check your cholesterol levels during your treatment with Jakafi.

The most common side effects of Jakafi include: for certain types of MF and PV – low platelet or red blood cell counts, bruising, dizziness, headache, and diarrhea; and for acute GVHD – low platelet, red or white blood cell counts, infections, and fluid retention.

These are not all the possible side effects of Jakafi. Ask your pharmacist or healthcare provider for more information. Tell your healthcare provider about any side effect that bothers you or that does not go away.

Before taking Jakafi, tell your healthcare provider about: all the medications, vitamins, and herbal supplements you are taking and all your medical conditions, including if you have an infection, have or had tuberculosis (TB) or have been in close contact with someone who has TB, have or had hepatitis B, have or had liver or kidney problems, are on dialysis, have high cholesterol or triglycerides, had skin cancer, or have any other medical condition. Take Jakafi exactly as your healthcare provider tells you. Do not change your dose or stop taking Jakafi without first talking to your healthcare provider.

Women should not take Jakafi while pregnant or planning to become pregnant. Do not breastfeed during treatment with Jakafi and for 2 weeks after the final dose.

You are encouraged to report negative side effects of prescription drugs to the FDA. Visit www.fda.gov/medwatch, or call 1-800-FDA-1088.

You may also report side effects to Incyte Medical Information at 1-855-463-3463.
