How it works
Get started by filling out the online enrollment application to find out if you are eligible for assistance.
NiceRx verifies your eligibility for medication assistance and notifies you if you are pre-qualified. The pharmaceutical company provides your medication for free, and you only pay our service fee.
We will request documents to be submitted by you and your healthcare provider that are required by the pharmaceutical company to complete your enrollment.
Once approved, the pharmaceutical company typically ships a 90-day supply of medication to your home or healthcare provider’s address. Final acceptance is determined by the pharmaceutical company.

Am I eligible for Biafine patient assistance?
We review each Biafine 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 Biafine patient assistance program?
Our process makes it as easy as possible to apply for the Biafine patient assistance program. Begin by completing the enrollment application form on our website. Tell us about any medications that you are taking, including Biafine, 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 a Biafine coupon provider?
NiceRx is not a Biafine coupon, Biafine discount card, or Biafine copay card provider. We do not offer Biafine manufacturer coupons, Biafine discounts, rebates, Biafine savings cards, trial offers, or free Biafine samples. We are a service provider that helps eligible individuals access their medication directly from the U.S. pharmaceutical company.
