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.

With our assistance, you could access the Lexiscan patient assistance program and obtain your medication for free. We only charge a flat monthly fee of $49 per medication for our services.
Am I eligible for Lexiscan patient assistance?
We review each Lexiscan 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 Lexiscan patient assistance program?
Our process makes it as easy as possible to apply for the Lexiscan patient assistance program. Begin by completing the enrollment application form on our website. Tell us about any medications that you are taking, including Lexiscan. You must also provide details about your healthcare provider, your insurance plan, and your household income. This 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.
Is NiceRx a Lexiscan coupons provider?
NiceRx is not a Lexiscan coupon, Lexiscan discount card, or Lexiscan copay card provider. We do not offer Lexiscan manufacturer coupons, Lexiscan discounts, rebates, Lexiscan savings cards, trial offers, or free Lexiscan samples. We are a service provider that helps eligible individuals access the Lexiscan patient assistance program.

What is Lexiscan?
Lexiscan (regadenoson) is a prescription medicine known as a stress agent. It works by increasing the blood flow into the arteries of the heart. Lexiscan is given before a radionuclide scan (imaging of the inside of the body) where patients are not able to reach the target cardiac hyperemia (blood flow) by exercise alone.
Lexiscan is given directly into a vein as an intravenous (IV) infusion. Other intravenous medications may be given at the same time so that your blood vessels can be seen more clearly during your examination. You will be monitored closely by a healthcare provider.
Lexiscan active ingredient
Regadenoson works by acting on specific points on cells in your body. These points are known as adenosine receptors. By acting on the A2A adenosine receptor, Lexiscan causes the blood vessels such as the arteries to relax and become wider. This has the effect of allowing blood to flow more easily through your body.
Lexiscan side effects
The most common side effects caused by Lexiscan include:
- Difficulty breathing
- Chest pain
- Nausea (feeling sick)
- Feeling flushed – a warm tingly feeling
In rare instances, Lexiscan can cause more serious side effects. These can include:
- High blood pressure – headaches and pounding in your ears
- Low blood pressure – feeling light-headed and faint
- Symptoms of a stroke – feeling numb or weak, especially down one side of your body, slurred speech, coordination problems
- Chest pain spreading to your neck and jaw
- Difficulty breathing – wheezing, tight chest, shallow breathing
- Increased heart rate
Your doctor will assess the benefits of using Lexiscan against your risk of side effects.
Lexiscan drug interactions
Lexiscan can interact with other medications. These include:
- Bronchodilators such as aminophylline
- Dipyridamole, used to stop blood clotting and to keep heart blood vessels open
- Xanthines such as theophylline and dyphylline used for asthma and COPD
This list is not exhaustive and other drugs may interact with Lexiscan.
