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.
Your monthly Oseni cost savings if eligible
If you are eligible for the Oseni patient assistance program you can receive your medication for free. Our monthly service fee of $49 per medication covers the cost of our services in applying for the program and requesting your ongoing refills on your behalf. If you obtain your Oseni through NiceRx, you will only pay $49 a month regardless of the retail price of your medication.
Am I eligible for the Oseni patient assistance program?
You could receive your Oseni without paying the full retail price if you meet the eligibility criteria for assistance. The eligibility requirements are set by the pharmaceutical companies that are providing assistance programs. At NiceRx, we review each application individually, although the main 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 Oseni patient assistance?
We do everything that we can to take the hassle and stress out of applying for patient assistance programs. Simply start by filling in our enrollment application. We will ask for details about your healthcare provider, your insurance, and your household income. This information is required by the pharmaceutical companies you are applying to for assistance. We may also be able to help you access patient assistance for other medications that you have been prescribed, so be sure to tell us about any medications you are taking as well as Oseni.
NiceRx will review the information you have provided, and if we determine that you may be eligible for assistance, we will seek to enroll you in the Oseni patient assistance program. We will handle the enrollment process for you by working with your healthcare provider and preparing all the required paperwork for your doctor to sign. We will also request your Oseni medication refills on your behalf for up to 1 year once you are enrolled in the program.
Is NiceRx an Oseni coupon provider?
At NiceRx, we help eligible individuals access the Oseni patient assistance program. This means that we are not an Oseni coupon, an Oseni discount card, or an Oseni copay card provider. We do not offer any medication trial offers, or free Oseni samples.
Can NiceRx help me get Oseni cheaper if I have insurance?
We may be able to help you if you have insurance, including if your insurance company will not pay for your Oseni medication, or you have a high copay or coinsurance responsibility. We may even be able to assist if you do not have insurance. Please fill in our enrollment application to find out more.

What is Oseni?
Oseni is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Takeda Pharmaceuticals. Oseni is a dipeptidyl peptidase-4 inhibitor (dpp-4 inhibitor) and thiazolidinedione combination product indicated with diet and exercise to improve glycemic control in adults with type 2 diabetes mellitus. Oseni is not for the treatment of type 1 diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis.
Thiazolidinediones, including pioglitazone, cause or exacerbate congestive heart failure in some patients. After initiating treatment and after dose increases, monitor patients carefully for signs and symptoms of heart failure (e.g., excessive, rapid weight gain, dyspnea, and/or edema). Oseni is not recommended in patients with symptomatic heart failure or those with established New York Heart Association (NYHA) Class III or IV heart failure.
What doses of Oseni are available?
Oseni is available in tablet form, in the following doses: 25 mg alogliptin and 15 mg pioglitazone, 25 mg alogliptin and 30 mg pioglitazone, 25 mg alogliptin and 45 mg pioglitazone., 12.5 mg alogliptin and 15 mg pioglitazone, 12.5 mg alogliptin and 30 mg pioglitazone, 12.5 mg alogliptin and 45 mg pioglitazone.
The dose of Oseni is based on your current regimen and medical condition. Do not exceed a daily dose of alogliptin 25 mg and pioglitazone 45 mg. Oseni can be taken with or without food.
Limit the initial dose of pioglitazone to 15 mg once daily in patients with NYHA Class I or II heart failure. Adjust the dose if there is moderate renal impairment. Oseni is not recommended for patients with severe renal impairment or end-stage renal disease (ESRD) requiring dialysis. The maximum recommended dose of pioglitazone is 15 mg once daily in patients taking strong CYP2C8 inhibitors such as gemfibrozil.
Please see the full prescribing information for the complete boxed warning and always speak with your healthcare provider about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.
