Your monthly Fragmin cost savings if eligible

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

Am I eligible for the Fragmin patient assistance program?

To find out if you are eligible for Fragmin 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 Fragmin patient assistance program?

Our application process aims to make it as easy as possible to apply for the Fragmin 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 Fragmin.

NiceRx will review your application and determine whether you may be eligible for Fragmin 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 Fragmin 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 Fragmin.

Is NiceRx a Fragmin coupons provider?

NiceRx is a service provider that helps eligible individuals access the Fragmin patient assistance program. We do not offer trial offers or free Fragmin 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 Fragmin coupons, discount cards, or Fragmin copay cards.

Can NiceRx help me get Fragmin if I have insurance?

NiceRx may be able to help you if your insurance company will not pay for your Fragmin 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.

How much is Fragmin with insurance?

The cost of Fragmin will vary by the terms of your healthcare plan. To find out what you might need to pay for Fragmin with insurance, your insurance provider or pharmacist will be able to help you calculate the copay costs with your current insurance.

How much does Fragmin cost without insurance?

Fragmin prices without insurance will vary depending on how much you buy. Prices will also vary by retailer. As a guide, Fragmin subcutaneous solution (2500 intl units/0.2 mL) typically costs $275 for 2 milliliters.

What is Fragmin?

Fragmin contains the prescription medicine dalteparin. Dalteparin is classed as an anticoagulant that stops blood clots from forming in your body. Fragmin is used:

  • In combination with aspirin for the prevention of complications in blood vessels in patients with unstable angina or myocardial infarction (heart attack)
  • For the prevention of DVT’s (deep vein thrombosis), which can lead to pulmonary embolism (blood clots in the lung) in patients who are having surgery or patients that have severely limited mobility and are at risk of developing a blood clot
  • For the long-term treatment of VTE (venous thromboembolism), blood clots in veins in adults. Fragmin may also be used to stop VTE from happening again in children 1 month or older

Fragmin active ingredients

Dalteparin is a form of heparin that reduces the formation of blood clots. Dalteparin works by improving the effects of antithrombin at blocking the blood clotting action of Factor Xa and thrombin in the body.

Fragmin is given every day if being used for DVT or blood vessel complications until the clotting condition improves. When used for VTE, Fragmin is used for several months. Fragmin is injected under the skin, not into a muscle. You should not use the same injection site twice in a row. A healthcare professional may show you how to use the medication by yourself. Prepare an injection only when you are ready to give it. You may use the same Fragmin vial for up to 2 weeks, but remember to throw the vial away after 2 weeks, even if there is still medicine left over. You will need regular medical checks while you are using this medicine.

Fragmin side effects

The most common side effects caused by Fragmin include:

  • Bruising or bleeding
  • Pain or swelling where the medicine was injected

In rare instances, Fragmin can cause more serious side effects. These can include:

  • Unusual bleeding (nose, mouth, vagina, or rectum), bleeding from wounds or needle injections, or any bleeding that will not stop
  • Purple or red pinpoint spots under your skin
  • Black or bloody stools
  • Coughing up blood or vomit that looks like coffee grounds
  • Sudden weakness, severe headache, confusion, or problems with speech, vision, or balance
  • Difficulty breathing

Your doctor will assess the benefits of using Fragmin against your risk of side effects.

Fragmin drug interactions

Fragmin can interact with other medications. These include:

  • Blood thinners – apixaban, aspirin, clopidogrel, dipyridamole, enoxaparin, heparin, rivaroxaban
  • NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) – bromfenac, diclofenac, ibuprofen, naproxen
  • Treatments for high blood pressure – captopril, enalapril, fosinopril, lisinopril, ramipril
  • Antidepressants – citalopram, escitalopram, fluoxetine, sertraline

This list is not exhaustive and other drugs may interact with Fragmin.

*Qualifying persons may obtain medications directly from patient assistance programs without any out-of-pocket cost (or for less than $49 per medication). 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.
