If you are eligible to receive your BeneFix prescription through the patient assistance program, your medication will be free. We charge a flat monthly service fee of $49 per medication to cover the cost of our services.

Am I eligible for BeneFix patient assistance?

To be eligible for the BeneFix patient assistance program, you will need to meet specific eligibility criteria set by the pharmaceutical company. At NiceRx, we review each BeneFix enrollment application individually. The main factors considered 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 Benefix patient assistance program?

Applying for the BeneFix patient assistance program through NiceRx is simple. Begin by completing the enrollment application on our website. We will ask for details about your healthcare provider, your insurance plan, and your household income. This information is required by the pharmaceutical manufacturers that supply your medication. We may be able to help you access patient assistance for other medications as well as BeneFix, so please tell us about any medications that you have been prescribed.

If we determine that you may be eligible for BeneFix assistance, we will handle the full enrollment process on your behalf. We will work with your healthcare provider to prepare and submit all the documents required for you to enroll. If you are successfully enrolled in the BeneFix patient assistance program, we will also request your BeneFix medication refills on your behalf for up to 1 year. At the end of your enrollment period, we will contact you for updated details and seek to re-enroll you in the program.

Is NiceRx a BeneFix coupons provider?

NiceRx does not provide BeneFix coupons, discount cards or copay cards. We do not offer printable BeneFix manufacturer coupons, BeneFix discounts, rebates, BeneFix savings cards, trial offers, or free samples. We are a service provider that helps eligible individuals access patient assistance programs. Our service cost is $49 a month per medication, so you will likely save more on your BeneFix medication with NiceRx.

  • Patients 16 years of age and older with hemophilia B (congenital factor IX deficiency or Christmas disease) for; Routine prophylaxis to reduce the frequency of bleeding episodes
