How it works
Get started by filling out the online enrollment application to find out if you are eligible for assistance.
NiceRx verifies your eligibility for medication assistance and notifies you if you are pre-qualified. The pharmaceutical company provides your medication for free, and you only pay our service fee.
We will request documents to be submitted by you and your healthcare provider that are required by the pharmaceutical company to complete your enrollment.
Once approved, the pharmaceutical company typically ships a 90-day supply of medication to your home or healthcare provider’s address. Final acceptance is determined by the pharmaceutical company.

Am I eligible for the Fasenra patient assistance program?
You could receive your Fasenra without paying the full retail price if you meet the eligibility criteria for assistance. This criteria is set by the pharmaceutical companies who 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 Fasenra 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 Fasenra.
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 Fasenra 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 Fasenra medication refills on your behalf for up to 1 year once you are enrolled in the program.

Can NiceRx help me get Fasenra 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 Fasenra 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 Fasenra?
Fasenra is a prescription maintenance medication used to manage the symptoms of asthma in adults and children 12 years and older. It is usually used alongside existing asthma medications when those medications are not effective enough to control your symptoms.
You take Fasenra by injecting it under your skin (subcutaneous injection) using a pre-filled syringe. Your doctor, or another healthcare professional will show you or a caregiver how to do this. You typically have 1 injection a month for the first 3 months, then 1 injection every 8 weeks afterward. Your doctor will decide how much Fasenra you need and how often.
Fasenra active ingredients
The active ingredient in Fasenra is called benralizumab. It is a type of medicine called a monoclonal antibody that has been designed to target a substance in your body that triggers inflammation.
Your immune system produces a range of substances that trigger inflammation in your body. One of these substances, called interleukin, is released by your white blood cells. When Fasenra is injected, the benralizumab it contains targets interleukin released by your white blood cells. Benralizumab attaches to the interleukin, stopping it from working. This reduces how much inflammation you have in your lungs and airways, lessening feelings of tightness, wheezing, and coughing, and making it easier for you to breathe. The exact way in which benralizumab works against asthma is however not fully understood.
Fasenra side effects
The most common side effects caused by Fasenra include:
- A sore throat
In rarer instances, Fasenra can cause more serious side effects, such as severe allergic reactions that can trigger anaphylaxis. This can cause rashes and hives to break out on your skin and a fall in blood pressure, as well as swelling of your face, mouth, and throat that can make it difficult to breathe.
Currently, no formal drug interaction studies have been carried out for Fasenra, however it is advised to discuss all medication you are taking with your doctor before using Fasenra.
Fasenra warning and precautions
Fasenra should not be given to children under 12 years of age. Do not take Fasenra if you are allergic to the active ingredient benralizumab or any of the other ingredients in Fasenra.
Talk to your doctor before taking Fasenra if you:
- Are taking any medications that contain steroids or corticosteroids
- Have a parasitic infection
- Are pregnant or are planning to become pregnant
- Are breastfeeding or are planning to breastfeed
