Your monthly Harvoni cost savings if eligible

If you are eligible for the Harvoni patient assistance program you can get your medication for free. Our monthly flat rate 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 Harvoni through NiceRx, you will only pay $49 a month regardless of the retail price of your medication.

Am I eligible for the Harvoni patient assistance program?

You could receive your Harvoni without paying the full retail price if you meet the eligibility criteria for assistance. This criteria is 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 Harvoni 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 Harvoni.

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 Harvoni 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 Harvoni medication refills on your behalf for up to 1 year once you are enrolled in the program.

Is NiceRx a Harvoni coupons provider?

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

Can NiceRx help me get Harvoni 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 Harvoni 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.

How much is Harvoni with insurance?

The cost of Harvoni will vary in line with the specific terms of your healthcare plan. For further details about what you may need to pay, your insurance provider or pharmacist will be able to calculate the copay costs with your current insurance.

How much does Harvoni cost without insurance?

Harvoni costs without insurance will vary depending on how much you buy and the retailer you buy it from. As a guide, Harvoni oral pellet 33.75 mg-150 mg will typically cost around $32,900 for 28 pellets. If you obtain your medication through NiceRx, you will pay a flat monthly rate of $49 per medication regardless of its retail price.

What is Harvoni?

Harvoni contains a combination of the prescription medicines ledipasvir and sofosbuvir. Ledipasvir and sofosbuvir are antiviral medications used to prevent the hepatitis C virus (HCV) from spreading in your body. Harvoni is used for the treatment of HCV in adults and children who are at least 3 years of age.

Harvoni is used to treat specific types of hepatitis C, and only in certain people. It can be used for people who also have HIV. This medicine is, however not a treatment for HIV or AIDS.

Doses of ledipasvir and sofosbuvir are based on weight, especially in children and teenagers. Your dose may change if your weight goes up or down. You will need regular blood tests to check your liver function, especially if you have ever had hepatitis B. Harvoni treatment should not be stopped suddenly, this could make it harder to treat with hepatitis C antiviral medicines.

Harvoni  active ingredients

Harvoni is a combination of ledipasvir and sofosbuvir, which are classed as direct acting antivirals (DAA).

Ledipasvir blocks the action of a specific protein that is needed for the virus to multiply.

Sofosbuvir is converted into a more active form of itself in the body. This more active form of sofosbuvir blocks the action of a specific enzyme that is needed for the virus to multiply.
