Your monthly Elecare cost savings if eligible

If you are eligible for the Elecare patient assistance program you can receive your medication for free. Our monthly service fee of $49 per medication covers the cost of our services in applying for the program and requesting your ongoing refills on your behalf. If you obtain your Elecare through NiceRx, you will only pay $49 a month regardless of the retail price of your medication.

Am I eligible for the Elecare patient assistance program?

You could receive your Elecare without paying the full retail price if you meet the eligibility criteria for assistance. The eligibility requirements are set by the pharmaceutical companies that are providing assistance programs. At NiceRx, we review each application individually, although the main 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 Elecare patient assistance?

We do everything that we can to take the hassle and stress out of applying for patient assistance programs. Simply start by filling in our enrollment application. We will ask for details about your healthcare provider, your insurance, and your household income. This information is required by the pharmaceutical companies you are applying to for assistance. We may also be able to help you access patient assistance for other medications that you have been prescribed, so be sure to tell us about any medications you are taking as well as Elecare.

NiceRx will review the information you have provided, and if we determine that you may be eligible for assistance, we will seek to enroll you in the Elecare patient assistance program. We will handle the enrollment process for you by working with your healthcare provider and preparing all the required paperwork for your doctor to sign. We will also request your Elecare medication refills on your behalf for up to 1 year once you are enrolled in the program.

Is NiceRx an Elecare coupons provider?

At NiceRx, we help eligible individuals access the Elecare patient assistance program. This means that we are not an Elecare coupon, an Elecare discount card, or an Elecare copay card provider. We do not offer any medication trial offers or free Elecare samples.

Can NiceRx help me get Elecare if I have insurance?

We may be able to help you if you have insurance, including if your insurance company will not pay for your Elecare medication, or you have a high copay or coinsurance responsibility. We may even be able to assist if you do not have insurance. Please fill in our enrollment application to find out more.

What is Elecare?

Elecare is a specialty hypoallergenic infant formula, manufactured by Abbott Pharmaceuticals. Elecare has 100% free amino acids as the protein source and has Omega 3 DHA and Omega-6 ARA nutrients, (found in breast milk) that help support brain and eye development.

Elecare and Elecare Jr, nutrition powder offer complete nutrition for infants and children who can not tolerate intact or hydrolyzed protein due to conditions such as severe food allergies or short bowel syndrome, eosinophilic GI disorders (EGID), or malabsorption in which an amino acid-based diet is required.

As EleCare is also lactose-free and free of soy proteins, it’s suitable for babies who have a milk allergy.

What doses of Elecare are available?

Elecare is available in powder form, in the following doses: when mixed as directed (at 20 Cal/fl oz), will yield approximately 95 fl oz of formula.

Please read the full product information for the full patient safety details and always speak with your healthcare provider about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.
