Am I eligible for the Botox patient assistance program?

We will review your application to determine whether you are eligible for the Botox patient assistance program. Each program has its own eligibility criteria which are set by the pharmaceutical companies, however, 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 Botox patient assistance program?

We make it as easy as possible to apply for the Botox patient assistance program. The first step is to complete our enrollment application. Tell us about any medications you are taking, including Botox. We will also ask for details about your healthcare provider, insurance, and your household income. This information is required by the pharmaceutical manufacturers who ship your medication.

If we determine that you may be eligible for Botox assistance, we will handle the application process for you. We will work directly with your healthcare provider to prepare your application documents. Once we have received the signed application and supporting documents, we will submit them to the patient assistance program on your behalf. Our service continues once you are enrolled in the Botox patient assistance program, and we will automatically request your Botox medication refills for up to 1 year.

Is NiceRx a Botox coupons provider?

We are a service provider that helps eligible individuals access the Botox patient assistance program. That means that we do not offer printable Botox manufacturer coupons, Botox discounts, or free Botox samples. We are not a Botox coupon provider or Botox discount card. Our service extends to assisting eligible individuals to access the medications they need through patient assistance programs.

Can NiceRx help me get Botox if I have insurance?

We may also be able to help you if you do not have insurance. Please apply online to find out more.

How much does Botox cost with insurance?

The copay for Botox with insurance depends on the terms of your healthcare plan. To find out how much this is, your healthcare provider or pharmacist will be able to calculate your copay with your current insurance.

What is Botox?

Botox cosmetic is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Allergan, Inc., an AbbVie company. Botox is a drug made from a toxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. It uses botulinum toxin type A, specifically Onabotulinumtoxin A, to temporarily paralyze muscle. This reduces the appearance of facial wrinkles.

The most common use of these injections is as a cosmetic treatment to temporarily relax the facial muscles that cause frown lines, crow’s feet, and lines in the forehead and around the eyes. Botox is also used to treat conditions such as severe neck pain and shoulder muscle contractions (cervical dystonia), upper limb spasticity in adults, excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis), an overactive bladder, urinary incontinence, blepharospasm, strabismus, and lazy eye. Botox injections may also help prevent chronic migraines.

The safety and effectiveness of Botox have not been established for the prophylaxis of episodic migraine, upper limb spasticity in pediatric patients, and for the treatment of lower limb spasticity in adult and pediatric patients. The safety and effectiveness of Botox for hyperhidrosis in body areas other than axillary have not been established.

What doses of Botox are available?

Botox treatment is available as single-use, sterile 50 units, 100 units, or 200 units vacuum-dried powder for reconstitution only with sterile, non-preserved 0.9% sodium chloride injection USP prior to injection.

Dosage and administration recommendations should be followed based on the condition being treated. Do not exceed a total dose of 360 Units in a 3-month interval.

Please read the full prescribing information and medication guide for important safety information. Always speak with a healthcare provider about any medical conditions you have or about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.

Botox active ingredients

Botox contains the neurotoxin botulinum toxin type A as the active ingredient.

Botox side effects

The most common side effects of Botox in clinical trials compared to placebo include:

  • Dry mouth
  • Discomfort or pain at the injection site
  • Tiredness
  • Chronic migraine, headache, neck pain, back pain
  • Double vision, blurred vision, decreased eyesight
  • Muscle weakness, drooping eyelids and eyebrows, swelling of your eyelids, and dry eyes
  • Urinary tract infection, urinary retention
  • Spasticity – pain in extremity
  • Dysphagia
  • Upper respiratory infection
  • Increased cough, flu syndrome, rhinitis

Your doctor will assess the benefits of using Botox against your risk of side effects. Patients are encouraged to report negative side effects or adverse reactions of Botox to the FDA. Visit www.fda.gov/medwatch, or call 1-800-FDA-1088.
