If you are eligible to receive your Olux prescription through the patient assistance program, your medication will be free. We charge a flat monthly service fee of $49 per medication to cover the cost of our services.

Am I eligible for Olux patient assistance?

To be eligible for the Olux patient assistance program, you will need to meet specific eligibility criteria set by the pharmaceutical company. At NiceRx, we review each Olux enrollment application individually. The main factors considered 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 Olux patient assistance program?

Applying for the Olux patient assistance program through NiceRx is simple. Begin by completing the enrollment application on our website. We will ask for details about your healthcare provider, your insurance plan, and your household income. This information is required by the pharmaceutical manufacturers that supply your medication. We may be able to help you access patient assistance for other medications as well as Olux, so please tell us about any medications that you have been prescribed.

If we determine that you may be eligible for Olux assistance, we will handle the full enrollment process on your behalf. We will work with your healthcare provider to prepare and submit all the documents required for you to enroll. If you are successfully enrolled in the Olux patient assistance program, we will also request your Olux medication refills on your behalf for up to 1 year. At the end of your enrollment period, we will contact you for updated details and seek to re-enroll you in the program.

Is NiceRx an Olux coupon provider?

NiceRx does not provide Olux coupons, discount cards, or copay cards. We do not offer printable Olux manufacturer coupons, Olux discounts, rebates, Olux savings cards, trial offers, or free samples. We are a service provider that helps eligible individuals access patient assistance programs. Our service cost is $49 a month per medication, so you will likely save more on your Olux medication with NiceRx.

Can NiceRx help me get Olux cheaper if I have insurance?

NiceRx may be able to help you access Olux patient assistance if:

  • You have a high copay or coinsurance responsibility for Olux
  • Your insurance company will not pay for your Olux prescription
  • You do not have insurance
