Your monthly Felbatol cost savings if eligible

The Felbatol patient assistance program can provide your medication for free. We simply charge $49 per month for each medication to cover the cost of our services. With NiceRx, you will only pay $49 to obtain your Felbatol, regardless of the retail price.

Am I eligible for the Felbatol patient assistance program?

To find out if you are eligible for Felbatol assistance you can apply online using our enrollment application. Each pharmaceutical company sets its eligibility criteria, and we will review your application individually to determine if you may be eligible. The three main factors to consider 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 Felbatol patient assistance program?

Our application process aims to make it as easy as possible to apply for the Felbatol patient assistance program. The first step is to complete our online enrollment application. We will ask you for details about your healthcare provider, your insurance plan, and your household income as this information is required by the pharmaceutical companies. We may be able to help you apply for other patient assistance programs too, so be sure to tell us about any medications you are taking as well as Felbatol.

NiceRx will review your application and determine whether you may be eligible for Felbatol assistance. If so, we will handle the full enrollment process for you and prepare all required documents for your healthcare provider to sign. Once you are successfully enrolled in the Felbatol patient assistance program, we will help you manage your prescription refills by requesting refills on your behalf throughout your enrollment period. At the end of your enrollment period, we will contact you for updated information and seek to re-enroll you so you can continue to access affordable Felbatol.

Is NiceRx a Felbatol coupon provider?

NiceRx is a service provider that helps eligible individuals access the Felbatol patient assistance program. We do not offer trial offers or free Felbatol samples. When obtaining your medication through NiceRx, you will only pay $49 a month per medication. This will likely save you more money than if you were to use Felbatol coupons, discount cards, or Felbatol copay cards.

Can NiceRx help me get Felbatol cheaper if I have insurance?

NiceRx may be able to help you if your insurance company will not pay for your Felbatol medication. We may also be able to help if you have a high copay or coinsurance responsibility. Whether you have insurance or not, apply online using our enrollment application to find out more.

What is Felbatol?

Felbatol is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Meda Pharms. Felbatol is known as an anticonvulsant or antiepileptic drug and is effective as:

  • Monotherapy and adjunctive therapy for partial-onset seizures and tonic-clonic seizures in adults 14 years of age and older
  • Adjunctive therapy for partial seizures and generalized seizures, including the atonic seizures associated with Lennox-Gastaut syndrome, in children aged 2 to 14 years

Felbatol is recommended only for those patients with severe epilepsy where a substantial risk of aplastic anemia or liver failure is considered acceptable in light of the potential benefits of its use. If these criteria are met, and the patient has been fully advised of the risk, Felbatol can be considered for use either alone or in combination with other seizure medicines.

What doses of Felbatol are available?

Felbatol is available in tablet form, in the following doses: 400 mg, 600 mg, or as an oral suspension, in the following doses: 600 mg/5 mL.

Felbatol can be taken either with food or without food. If you forget to take your medicine, take the medicine as soon as you can, but skip the missed dose if it is almost time for your next dose. Do not take two doses at one time. The bottle should be stored at room temperature and kept out of the reach of children.

Read the medication guide and the black box warning, and always speak with a healthcare professional about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.

However, our monthly flat rate of just $49 per medication spares you the hassle of tracking down the different programs and filling out all the required paperwork for each program.

Enrollees enjoy a full-service solution, as NiceRx assists them and their physicians with the entire process. We prepare all required documents for the physician to sign, help enrollees manage all prescription refills, monitor eligibility criteria, and maintain enrollment.

**If you do not receive medications because you were determined to be ineligible for the prescription assistance by the applicable pharmaceutical companies and you have a letter of denial, we will refund any fees you paid toward medications for which you did not qualify to receive prescription assistance (“Refund”).

To receive a refund, you must send the letter of denial to us by fax to 888-517-7444, or by e-mail to [email protected] within 30 days of your receipt of such letter. The Refund is your sole and exclusive remedy for any fees you may wish to dispute.
