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.

What is Orbactiv?
Orbactiv contains the prescription medicine oritavancin, an antibiotic injection used to treat skin and skin structure infections caused by bacteria in adults. Orbactiv should only be used for the treatment or prevention of infections that are proven or strongly suspected to be caused by bacteria that will be treatable with Orbactiv.
Orbactiv will be injected directly into a vein by a healthcare professional. Orbactiv is given slowly over 3 hours as a single dose. Orbactiv can affect the results of certain other medical tests for up to 5 days after your injection. Inform any doctor who treats you that you have been treated with this medicine. Also, contact your doctor if your symptoms do not improve after being given Orbactiv.
Orbactiv active ingredients
Orbactiv is an antibacterial drug produced from naturally occurring material. In tests, the effectiveness of Orbactiv against bacteria such as Staphylococcus aureus depends on the concentration of Orbactiv used. Oritavancin works by stopping the formation of the bacterial cell wall, and by weakening the strength of the bacterial cell wall. This inevitably causes the bacteria cell to die.
