Am I eligible for Desoxyn patient assistance?

  • I meet certain income eligibility requirements

How do I apply for the Desoxyn patient assistance program?

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

If we determine that you may be eligible for Desoxyn 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 Desoxyn patient assistance program, we will also request your Desoxyn medication refills on your behalf for up to 1 year.
