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 Monoferric patient assistance?
We review each Monoferric 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 Monoferric patient assistance program?
Our process makes it as easy as possible to apply for the Monoferric patient assistance program. Begin by completing the enrollment application form on our website. Tell us about any medications that you are taking, including Monoferric, 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 Monoferric coupon, Monoferric discount card, or Monoferric copay card provider.

What is Monoferric?
Monoferric is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Pharmacosmos Therapeutics Inc. It is an iron replacement product indicated for the treatment of iron deficiency anemia (IDA) in adult patients who have an intolerance to oral iron or have had an unsatisfactory response to oral iron, or patients who have non-hemodialysis dependent chronic kidney disease (NDD-CKD).
Iron deficiency anemia is the most common form of anemia. It occurs when the body lacks enough iron to produce sufficient hemoglobin, a substance present in red blood cells that is responsible for carrying oxygen.
In clinical studies, Monoferric demonstrated non-inferiority to iron sucrose injection. The safety and effectiveness have not been established in pediatric patients.
What doses of Monoferric are available?
Monoferric is available as an injection dosage form, in the following doses: 1,000 mg iron /10 mL (100 mg/mL) single-dose vial, 500 mg iron/5 mL (100 mg/mL) single-dose vial, 100 mg iron/mL single-dose vial.
Each 1 mL of solution contains 100 mg of elemental iron as ferric derisomaltose in water for injection.
For patients weighing 50 kg or more, administer 1,000 mg of Monoferric as an intravenous iron (IV iron) infusion. Patients weighing less than 50 kg administer Monoferric as 20 mg/kg actual body weight as an intravenous infusion. Repeat Monoferric treatment if iron deficiency anemia reoccurs.
Serum ferritin peaks approximately 7 days after an intravenous dose of Monoferric and slowly returns to stable levels after about 4 weeks. Monitor the hematologic response and iron parameters (serum ferritin and transferrin saturation) during parenteral iron therapy.
Please read the prescribing information for the full drug information and always speak with a healthcare professional for medical advice about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.
