NiceRx verifies your eligibility for medication assistance and notifies you if you are qualified. The pharmaceutical company provides your medication for free and you only pay our service fee.
You may be required to submit further information and documents required by the pharmaceutical company which can be securely uploaded online.
Your application is created and sent to your doctor for signature. At this stage, you will be billed $49 and will not be billed again until you receive your first medication delivery.
Your application is sent to the pharmaceutical company. You will be billed again once you receive your medication. We handle the entire ordering process including requesting ongoing refills.
Your monthly Atrovent HFA cost savings if eligible
If you are eligible for the Atrovent HFA patient assistance program you can get your medication for free. Our monthly flat rate of $49 per medication covers the cost of our services in applying for the program and requesting your ongoing refills on your behalf. If you obtain your Atrovent HFA through NiceRx, you will only pay $49 a month regardless of the retail price of your medication.
Am I eligible for the Atrovent HFA patient assistance program?
You could receive your Atrovent HFA without paying the full retail price if you meet the eligibility criteria for assistance. This criteria is set by the pharmaceutical companies who are providing assistance programs. At NiceRx we review each application individually, although the main factors considered by most programs are:
How do I apply for Atrovent HFA patient assistance?
We do everything that we can to take the hassle and stress out of applying for patient assistance programs. Simply start by filling in our enrollment application. We will ask for details about your healthcare provider, your insurance, and your household income. This information is required by the pharmaceutical companies you are applying to for assistance. We may also be able to help you access patient assistance for other medications that you have been prescribed, so be sure to tell us about any medications you are taking as well as Atrovent HFA.
NiceRx will review the information you have provided, and if we determine that you may be eligible for assistance, we will seek to enroll you in the Atrovent HFA patient assistance program. We will handle the enrollment process for you by working with your healthcare provider and preparing all the required paperwork for your doctor to sign. We will also request your Atrovent HFA medication refills on your behalf for up to 1 year once you are enrolled in the program.
Is NiceRx an Atrovent HFA coupons provider?
At NiceRx, we help eligible individuals access the Atrovent HFA patient assistance program. This means that we are not a Atrovent HFA coupon, a Atrovent HFA discount card, or a Atrovent HFA copay card provider. We do not offer any medication trial offers, or free Atrovent HFA samples.
Can NiceRx help me get Atrovent HFA if I have insurance?
We may be able to help you if you have insurance, including if your insurance company will not pay for your Atrovent HFA medication, or you have a high copay or coinsurance responsibility. We may even be able to assist if you do not have insurance. Please fill in our enrollment application to find out more.
How much is Atrovent HFA with insurance?
The cost of Atrovent HFA will vary in line with the specific terms of your healthcare plan. For further details about what you may need to pay, your insurance provider or pharmacist will be able to calculate the copay costs with your current insurance.
How much does Atrovent HFA cost without insurance?
Atrovent HFA costs without insurance will vary depending on the retailer you buy it from. As a guide, one Atrovent HFA inhaler with 12.9 gm of 17 mcg Atrovent will typically cost around $550. If you obtain your medication through NiceRx, you will pay a flat monthly rate of $49 per medication regardless of its retail price.
What is Atrovent HFA?
Atrovent HFA is a prescription medication used to manage bronchospasms (narrowing of the airways) in adults with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). If you have COPD, your doctor may have prescribed Atrovent HFA to help manage your condition. It is a maintenance treatment that relaxes the muscle tissue in your airways to help stop them narrowing (bronchospasm), making it easier for you to breathe.
You take Atrovent HFA by inhaling it into your airways using an inhaler. You typically take Atrovent HFA four times a day, but the doctor who prescribes it to you will decide how much you should take and how often based on your condition and medical history.
Atrovent HFA active ingredients
The active ingredient in Atrovent HFA is called ipratropium bromide, usually just called ipratropium. It’s an anticholinergic drug that helps to relax and open-up your airways.
When you inhale Atrovent HFA, the ipratropium it contains attaches to the surface of the muscle tissue in your airways at sites called muscarinic receptors. When these receptors are stimulated, they can cause the muscle tissue to contract, narrowing your airways. But when ipratropium attaches to the muscarinic receptors it blocks them, stopping them from being stimulated. This relaxes the muscle tissue, opening up your airways. On average, it takes between 15 and 30 minutes for ipratropium to start working and its effects can last from three to five hours.
Atrovent HFA side effects
The most common side effects caused by Atrovent HFA include:
- Worsened COPD symptoms
- Dyspnea – shortness of breath
- Bronchitis – inflammation of the airways in your lungs that can cause coughing, producing sputum, wheezing, shortness of breath, and chest pain
In rare instances, Atrovent HFA can cause more serious side effects, like:
- Severe allergic reactions to the medication that can cause rashes, itching, swelling in your face, tongue, and throat, and difficulties breathing
- Paradoxical bronchospasm – a sudden narrowing and blockage of your airways that can cause difficulties breathing
- New or worsened acute narrow-angle glaucoma – an eye condition caused by a build-up of pressure inside your eye
- New or worsened urinary retention – difficulties passing urine or pain when passing urine
Your doctor will assess the benefits of taking Atrovent HFA against your risk of side effects.
Atrovent HFA drug interactions
Atrovent HFA can interact with other medications. Tell your prescribing doctor about all drugs you’re taking, particularly:
- Any other anticholinergic medicines or medicines that contain an anticholinergic agent
- Any other medications for COPD
Atrovent HFA warning and precautions
Atrovent HFA is for everyday use to manage your COPD symptoms and to keep your airways relaxed and open. It shouldn’t be used to relieve sudden and severe symptoms, like a COPD exacerbation. You should use a rescue inhaler in this situation, or whatever medication your doctor has prescribed for sudden and severe symptoms.
Atrovent HFA isn’t suitable for everyone. Don’t take Atrovent HFA if you:
- Are allergic to the active ingredient ipratropium bromide
- Are allergic to any of the other ingredients in Atrovent HFA
- Are allergic to atropine
- Are under 18 years of age
Talk to your doctor before taking Atrovent HFA if you:
- Are taking any of the medications that could interact with Atrovent HFA
- Have any kidney problems
- Have any eye problems, particularly glaucoma
- Have any conditions that make it difficult to pass urine, like an enlarged prostate
- Are pregnant or are planning to become pregnant
- Are breastfeeding or are planning to breastfeed
