With our assistance, you could access the Mephyton 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 Mephyton patient assistance?

We review each Mephyton 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 Mephyton patient assistance program?

Our process makes it as easy as possible to apply for the Mephyton patient assistance program. Begin by completing the enrollment application form on our website. Tell us about any medications that you are taking, including Mephyton, 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.

Is NiceRx a Mephyton coupons provider?

NiceRx is not a Mephyton coupon, Mephyton discount card, or Mephyton copay card provider. We do not offer Mephyton manufacturer coupons, Mephyton discounts, rebates, Mephyton savings cards, trial offers, or free Mephyton samples. We are a service provider that helps eligible individuals access their medication directly from the U.S. pharmaceutical company.

  • You have a high copay or coinsurance responsibility for Mephyton

What is Mephyton?

Mephyton is an FDA-approved medication manufactured by Bausch Health US, LLC. It is used to replace vitamin K in adults with low levels of blood clotting factors. Low levels may be due to the faulty formation of factors II, VII, IX, and X when caused by certain medical conditions such as vitamin K deficiency or if there is interference with vitamin K activity:

  • Anticoagulant-induced prothrombin deficiency caused by other medication
  • Hypoprothrombinemia due to antibacterial therapy
  • Hypoprothrombinemia due to factors limiting the absorption or synthesis of vitamin K, such as obstructive jaundice, biliary fistula, sprue, celiac disease, cystic fibrosis of the pancreas, and regional enteritis
  • Other drug-induced hypoprothrombinemia where there is interference with vitamin K metabolism, e.g., salicylates
