Common enrollment questions

What do I need to get started?

Once you complete the online enrollment, we will let you know if you qualify right away. Once successfully enrolled in the program, NiceRx will manage your enrollment including requesting refills for your prescription medications without you having to worry.

What are the eligibility requirements?

Each program defines its own eligibility criteria. In general, you must meet the following requirements:

  • I am a permanent, legal resident of the United States or Puerto Rico
  • I am uninsured or my insurance doesn’t cover my medication
  • I meet certain income eligibility requirements

Who is this program for?

NiceRx is intended for low-income individuals in the United States who cannot afford their medications.

Is there any limit on the number of medications?

No, there is no limit on the number of medications we can help you with. Please let us know all of the brand name and generic medications you are taking so we can check all available sources of assistance.

What happens after I apply?

Following successful enrollment, we may request further documentation from you, to allow us to complete your application. We will handle the whole enrollment process including requesting a prescription from your doctor and working with the pharmaceutical company who ships your medication. We will send you notification emails to update you on the progress of your application so that you will always know the current status.

You should continue taking your medications as normal until you have received your first medication shipment. NiceRx does not approve applications or dispense medication to patients. The pharmaceutical company will make the final determination of acceptance and you will only be charged for medications that we are able to assist with. Therefore, we cannot guarantee shipment times for your medication, although the average turnaround time for the first supply is 6 to 8 weeks from the time we receive all required documentation from you and your healthcare provider.

Do you offer refunds if I decide to cancel?

We understand that you may wish to cancel should you find a more cost-effective alternative somewhere else. In these circumstances, you may be eligible for a full or partial refund, however, this is approved on a case-by-case basis, depending on if you have had your first supply already. If you would like to have your membership cancelled, please review the following guidelines and send us a signed cancellation request by email, fax, or mail.

You may be eligible for a full refund of your first month’s dues if:

  • you have cancelled prior to the time that we have created your application.
  • you have received a denial letter stating that you are not eligible to receive medication and have delivered a copy of the denial letter to us within 30 days of its date.

If you notify us after you received a three-month supply of medicine and cancelled after one month (and have a two months’ supply remaining), you will be billed for the subsequent two months.

Are you a healthcare provider or employer?

We work with healthcare practices and employers to help their patients and employees save money on their prescription medications.
