Am I eligible for Acanya patient assistance?

We review each Acanya enrollment application individually to determine if you are eligible. Each assistance program has its own eligibility criteria and the factors considered by most programs are:

  • 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

How do I apply for the Acanya patient assistance program?

Our process makes it as easy as possible to apply for the Acanya patient assistance program. Begin by completing the enrollment application form on our website. Tell us about any medications that you are taking, including Acanya, your healthcare provider, your insurance plan, and your household income. This information is required by the pharmaceutical manufacturers who will supply the medication, so it is important to make sure this information is accurate and up to date.

We will review the information that you have provided to determine whether you are eligible for patient assistance. If we can pre-qualify you for assistance, NiceRx will handle the full enrollment process on your behalf. If you are approved by the pharmaceutical company, you will typically start receiving your medication in 6 – 8 weeks.

Is NiceRx an Acanya coupon provider?

NiceRx is not an Acanya coupon, Acanya discount card, or Acanya copay card provider. We do not offer Acanya manufacturer coupons, Acanya discounts, rebates, Acanya savings cards, trial offers, or free Acanya samples. We are a service provider that helps eligible individuals access their medication directly from the U.S. pharmaceutical company.
