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 Hyalgan patient assistance?
We review each Hyalgan enrollment application individually to determine if you are eligible. Each assistance program has its own eligibility criteria and the 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 the Hyalgan patient assistance program?
Our process makes it as easy as possible to apply for the Hyalgan patient assistance program. Begin by completing the enrollment application form on our website. Tell us about any medications that you are taking, including Hyalgan, your healthcare provider, your insurance plan, and your household income. This information is required by the pharmaceutical manufacturers who will supply the medication, so it is important to make sure this information is accurate and up to date.
We will review the information that you have provided to determine whether you are eligible for patient assistance. If we can pre-qualify you for assistance, NiceRx will handle the full enrollment process on your behalf. If you are approved by the pharmaceutical company, you will typically start receiving your medication in 6 – 8 weeks.

NiceRx is not a Hyalgan coupon, Hyalgan discount card, or Hyalgan copay card provider.

What is Hyalgan?
Hyalgan is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Fidia Farmaceutici S.p.A.
Hyalgan (hyaluronate, also known as hyaluronan) is similar to the synovial fluid that surrounds the joints in your body. The synovial fluid normally acts as a lubricant and shock absorber for your joints. If you develop osteoarthritis, OA of the knee, the cartilage in your joint breaks down and wears away. OA causes you to lose hyaluronic acid too, so it’s difficult and painful to walk or bend your joint.
Originally, the hyaluronic acid used for these treatments was made from rooster’s combs. Most products now contain other, genetically modified natural materials which may reduce the potential side effects of these injections compared to older treatments.
Treatment with Hyalgan for knee pain caused by osteoarthritis of the knee is also called viscosupplementation. It is usually used in patients who have not responded to other treatments such as pain relief (acetaminophen), exercise, or physical therapy.
What doses of Hyalgan are available?
Hyalgan is available in injection form, in the following doses: 10 mg/mL, 20 mg/mL, 8.4 mg/mL.
Before administration, remove any joint effusion if present. Hyalgan is administered by intra-articular injection directly into your knee joint. The treatment cycle consists of five injections given at weekly intervals. You may experience benefits with three injections given at weekly intervals.
To prevent pain and swelling, your doctor may recommend resting your knee or applying ice for a short time after your injection. After each injection, do not put too much pressure on your joint for about 48 hours. Avoid strenuous activities, or even standing up for too long.
Read all patient information, medication guides, and instruction sheets provided to you, and always speak with a healthcare professional for medical advice or about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.
