Your monthly Auvi-Q cost savings if eligible

The Auvi-Q patient assistance program can provide your medication for free. We simply charge $49 per month for each medication to cover the cost of our services. With NiceRx, you will only pay $49 to obtain your Auvi-Q, regardless of the retail price.

Am I eligible for the Auvi-Q patient assistance program?

To find out if you are eligible for Auvi-Q assistance you can apply online using our enrollment application. Each pharmaceutical company sets its eligibility criteria, and we will review your application individually to determine if you may be eligible. The three main factors to consider 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 Auvi-Q patient assistance program?

Our application process aims to make it as easy as possible to apply for the Auvi-Q patient assistance program. The first step is to complete our online enrollment application. We will ask you for details about your healthcare provider, your insurance plan, and your household income as this information is required by the pharmaceutical companies. We may be able to help you apply for other patient assistance programs too, so be sure to tell us about any medications you are taking as well as Auvi-Q.

NiceRx will review your application and determine whether you may be eligible for Auvi-Q assistance. If so, we will handle the full enrollment process for you and prepare all required documents for your healthcare provider to sign. Once you are successfully enrolled in the Auvi-Q patient assistance program, we will help you manage your prescription refills by requesting refills on your behalf throughout your enrollment period. At the end of your enrollment period, we will contact you for updated information and seek to re-enroll you so you can continue to access affordable Auvi-Q.

Is NiceRx an Auvi-Q coupons provider?

NiceRx is a service provider that helps eligible individuals access the Auvi-Q patient assistance program. We do not offer trial offers or free Auvi-Q samples. When obtaining your medication through NiceRx, you will only pay $49 a month per medication. This will likely save you more money than if you were to use Auvi-Q coupons, discount cards, or Auvi-Q copay cards.

Can NiceRx help me get Auvi-Q if I have insurance?

NiceRx may be able to help you if your insurance company will not pay for your Auvi-Q medication. We may also be able to help if you have a high copay or coinsurance responsibility. Whether you have insurance or not, apply online using our enrollment application to find out more.

How much does Auvi-Q cost without insurance?

Auvi-Q prices without insurance will vary depending on how many you buy. Prices will also vary by retailer. As a guide, Auvi-Q injectable kit 0.1 mg typically costs $600 for 2 kits.

How much does Auvi-Q cost with insurance?

The copay for Auvi-Q will vary by the terms of your healthcare plan. To find out what you might need to pay for Auvi-Q with insurance, your insurance provider or pharmacist will be able to help you calculate the copay costs with your current insurance.

What is Auvi-Q?

Auvi-Q is an FDA-approved medication manufactured by Kaleo, Inc. It is an epinephrine auto-injector for infants and toddlers (16.5 lbs-33 lbs). Auvi-Q contains epinephrine, a non-selective alpha, and beta-adrenergic receptor agonist indicated for allergic emergency treatment of severe allergic reactions, including anaphylaxis in people who are at risk for or have a history of serious allergic reactions.

Anaphylaxis can be due to allergens, a food allergy, latex allergy, allergy to insects bites or stings, asthma, or other materials or conditions. Epinephrine works quickly to improve trouble breathing, stimulate the heart, raise dropping blood pressure, reverse hives, and reduce swelling of the face, lips, and throat.

What doses of Auvi-Q are available?

Auvi-Q is available in injection form, in the following doses: 0.3 mg/0.3 mL epinephrine injection, USP, pre-filled Auvi-q auto-injector, 0.15 mg/0.15 mL epinephrine injection, USP, pre-filled Auvi-q auto-injector, 0.1 mg/0.1 mL epinephrine injection, USP, pre-filled Auvi-q auto-injector.

Auvi-Q may be administered to pediatric patients at a dosage appropriate to body weight. Do not inject Auvi-Q into digits, hands, or feet. Epinephrine is a strong vasoconstrictor, and accidental injection into the digits, hands, or feet may result in loss of blood flow to the affected area. To minimize the risk of injection-related injury, caregivers should hold a child’s leg firmly in place and limit movement prior to and during injection when administering to young children or infants.

Epinephrine is light sensitive and should be stored in the outer case provided to protect it from light. Store at 20°to 25°C (68°to 77°F). Your Auvi-Q has an expiration date. Replace it before the expiration date.

Always speak with a healthcare provider for medical advice or about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition, and read the full patient information and medication guide for the patient safety instructions.
