Your monthly Novolin R cost savings if eligible

The Novolin R patient assistance program can provide your medication for free. We simply charge $49 a month per medication to cover the cost of our services. With NiceRx, you will only pay $49 to obtain your Novolin R, regardless of the retail price.

Am I eligible for the Novolin R patient assistance program?

To find out if you are eligible for Novolin R assistance you can apply online using our enrollment application. Each pharmaceutical company sets its eligibility criteria, and we will review your application individually to determine if you may be eligible. The three main factors to consider 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 Novolin R patient assistance program?

Our application process aims to make it as easy as possible to apply for the Novolin R patient assistance program. The first step is to complete our online enrollment application. We will ask you for details about your healthcare provider, your insurance plan, and your household income as this information is required by the pharmaceutical companies. We may be able to help you apply for other patient assistance programs too, so be sure to tell us about any medications you are taking as well as Novolin R.

NiceRx will review your application and determine whether you may be eligible for Novolin R assistance. If so, we will handle the full enrollment process for you and prepare all required documents for your healthcare provider to sign. Once you are successfully enrolled in the Novolin R patient assistance program, we will help you manage your prescription refills by requesting refills on your behalf throughout your enrollment period. At the end of your enrollment period we will contact you for updated information and seek to re-enroll you so you can continue to access affordable Novolin R.

Is NiceRx a Novolin R coupons provider?

NiceRx is a service provider that helps eligible individuals access the Novolin R patient assistance program. We do not offer trial offers or free Novolin R samples. When obtaining your medication through NiceRx, you will only pay $49 a month per medication. This will likely save you more money than if you were to use Novolin R coupons, discount cards, or Novolin R copay cards.

Can NiceRx help me get Novolin R if I have insurance?

NiceRx may be able to help you if your insurance company will not pay for your Novolin R medication. We may also be able to help if you have a high copay or coinsurance responsibility. Whether you have insurance or not, apply online using our enrollment application to find out more.

How much is Novolin R with insurance?

The cost of Novolin R will vary by the terms of your healthcare plan. To find out what you might need to pay for Novolin R with insurance, your insurance provider or pharmacist will be able to help you calculate the copay costs with your current insurance.

How much does Novolin R cost without insurance?

Novolin R prices without insurance will vary depending on if you buy Novolin R solution to be used in a syringe or a Novolin R prefilled injection pen. Prices will also vary by retailer. As a guide, a 10 ml vial of Novolin R solution for injection typically costs around $160.

What is Novolin R?

Novolin R is a man-made insulin used to manage high blood glucose levels in adults and children with type 1 and type 2 diabetes. It is a short-acting insulin you inject into your body under your skin (subcutaneous injection) using either a self-injecting Novolin R pen or a syringe.

The medication is usually injected after meals to lower your blood glucose levels. Your prescribing doctor will tell you when to inject Novolin R, how often, and what dose to inject. You may be prescribed Novolin R alone or alongside other diabetes medications and treatments.

Novolin R active ingredients

The active ingredient in Novolin R is called regular insulin. It is a synthetic (man-made) version of the insulin your pancreas organ naturally makes.

Regular insulin works in the same way as the insulin your pancreas makes. It is a short-acting insulin that starts to work in around 30 minutes. It reaches its peak in 2 to 3 hours and lasts for up to 8 hours. Novolin R is usually injected after a meal to help your body absorb the glucose released from the food you digest.

Novolin R side effects

The most common side effects caused by Novolin R include:

  • Reactions at the site of injection – itching, rashes, skin thickening, or pits forming in your skin (lipodystrophy)
  • Allergic reactions
  • Swelling (edema) of the feet and hands
  • Weight gain
  • Low blood sugar (hypoglycemia)

Novolin R can also cause more serious side effects. These are rarer, but when they occur they may include:

  • Heart failure, if you take Novolin R alongside another type of diabetes medication, called TZDs (thiazolidinediones)
  • Severe allergic reactions to the medication which can cause anaphylaxis
  • Your blood sugar falling to dangerous levels (hypoglycemia)
  • Low potassium levels in your blood (hypokalemia) – constipation, leg cramps, irregular heartbeats, increase in thirst or urination, muscle weakness

Novolin R drug interactions

Novolin R can interact with other medications. Tell your prescribing doctor about all drugs you are taking, particularly:

  • Antibiotics such as cinoxacin, ciprofloxacin, enoxacin, norfloxacin, ofloxacin
  • Thiazolidinedione medications (TZDs) such as pioglitazone and rosiglitazone, taken to treat diabetes

  • Alcohol or any medications that contain alcohol

  • Antidepressants, including monoamine oxidase inhibitors and selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors – phenelzine, selegiline, and sertraline
  • Beta 2-stimulants taken to treat asthma – salmeterol, formoterol
  • Beta-blockers taken to treat high blood pressure – propranolol, sotalol
  • Clonidine taken to treat a range of conditions including high blood pressure
  • Corticosteroids such as cortisone and prednisolone
  • Diuretics taken to make you lose water and salt, usually to treat high blood pressure – bumetanide, furosemide

*Qualifying persons may obtain medications directly from patient assistance programs without any out-of-pocket cost (or for less than $49 per medication). However, our monthly flat rate of just $49 per medication spares you the hassle of tracking down the different programs and filling out all the required paperwork for each program.

Enrollees enjoy a full-service solution, as NiceRx assists them and their physicians with the entire process. We prepare all required documents for the physician to sign, help enrollees manage all prescription refills, monitor eligibility criteria, and maintain enrollment.

**If you do not receive medications because you were determined to be ineligible for the prescription assistance by the applicable pharmaceutical companies and you have a letter of denial, we will refund any fees you paid toward medications for which you did not qualify to receive prescription assistance (“Refund”).

To receive a refund, you must send the letter of denial to us by fax to 888-517-7444, or by e-mail to [email protected] within 30 days of your receipt of such letter. The Refund is your sole and exclusive remedy for any fees you may wish to dispute.
