Am I eligible for Cipro HC patient assistance?

To be eligible for the Cipro HC patient assistance program, you will need to meet specific eligibility criteria set by the pharmaceutical company. At NiceRx, we review each Cipro HC 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 Cipro HC patient assistance program?

Applying for the Cipro HC 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 Cipro HC, so please tell us about any medications that you have been prescribed.

If we determine that you may be eligible for Cipro HC 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 Cipro HC patient assistance program, we will also request your Cipro HC 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 Cipro HC coupon provider?

NiceRx does not provide Cipro HC coupons, discount cards or copay cards. We do not offer printable Cipro HC manufacturer coupons, Cipro HC discounts, rebates, Cipro HC 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 Cipro HC medication with NiceRx.

NiceRx may be able to help you access Cipro HC patient assistance if:

What is Cipro HC?

Cipro HC Otic is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Novartis. Cipro HC contains ciprofloxacin, a quinolone antibiotic, and hydrocortisone, a steroid.

Cipro HC is used to treat infections in the ear canal (acute otitis externa). Cipro HC will not treat an inner ear infection (also called otitis media).

What doses of Cipro HC are available?

Cipro HC is available as an otic suspension dosage form, in the following doses: Ciprofloxacin 2 mg/mL, hydrocortisone 10 mg/1mL.

Lie down or tilt your head with your ear facing upward. Open the ear canal by gently pulling your ear back, or pulling downward on the earlobe when giving this medicine to a child. Hold the dropper upside down over your affected ear and drop the correct number of drops into the ear. Remain lying down or with your head tilted for up to 60 seconds. You may use a small piece of cotton to plug the ear and keep the medicine from draining out. Do not touch the dropper tip or place it directly in your ear. It may become contaminated.

Please read the drug information and always speak with a healthcare professional for medical advice about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.

Cipro HC active ingredients

Cipro HC contains a combination of ciprofloxacin (a fluoroquinolone-type antibiotic) and hydrocortisone (an anti-inflammatory corticosteroid).

Cipro HC side effects

The most common side effects of Cipro HC in clinical trials include:
