How it works
Get started by filling out the online enrollment application to find out if you are eligible.
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.

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.

What is Biafine?
Biafine is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Valeant Pharmaceuticals International, Inc. Biafine emulsion is a water-based skin care moisturizer that penetrates all skin types to hydrate the underlying tissues.
It is used for the management of superficial wounds, minor abrasions, dry skin, eczema, dermal ulcers, 1st and 2nd-degree burns, including sunburns, radiation dermatitis, post-cosmetic surgery skin, laser peels, dermabrasion, and minor skin irritations.
What doses of Biafine are available?
Biafine is available in emulsion form, in the following doses: Trolamine 0.670 g /100 g emulsion for topical application.
Wash the affected area with saline, clean water, or a wound cleanser. Apply Biafine on and around the affected area in thick layers 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick. Reapply every 1 to 2 days or as directed until the wound or lesion has healed fully.
For radiation dermatitis, apply a generous amount three times per day, 7 days a week to the treated area. Do not stop applications during the course of radiation therapy, even for one day. Do not apply 4 hours before a radiation session.
Some ingredients may make your skin more sensitive to the sun. You should limit your time in the sun, avoid tanning booths and sunlamps, use sunscreen and wear protective clothing when outdoors.
