Your monthly Pediasure cost savings if eligible

If you are eligible for the Pediasure patient assistance program, the cost of your medication will be free. We only charge $49 per month for each medication, to cover our service fees. You could receive your Pediasure prescription for just $49 a month, regardless of the retail price of your medication.

Am I eligible for the Pediasure patient assistance program?

We will review your application to determine whether you are eligible for the Pediasure patient assistance program. Each program has its own eligibility criteria which are set by the pharmaceutical companies, however, 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 Pediasure patient assistance program?

We make it as easy as possible to apply for the Pediasure patient assistance program. The first step is to complete our enrollment application. Tell us about any medications you are taking, including Pediasure. We will also ask for details about your healthcare provider, insurance, and your household income. This information is required by the pharmaceutical manufacturers who ship your medication.

If we determine that you may be eligible for Pediasure assistance, we will handle the application process for you. We will work directly with your healthcare provider to prepare your application documents. Once we have received the signed application and supporting documents, we will submit them to the patient assistance program on your behalf. Our service continues once you are enrolled in the Pediasure patient assistance program, and we will automatically request your Pediasure medication refills for up to 1 year.

Is NiceRx a Pediasure coupons provider?

We are a service provider that helps eligible individuals access the Pediasure patient assistance program. That means that we do not offer printable Pediasure manufacturer coupons, Pediasure discounts, or free Pediasure samples. We are not a Pediasure coupon provider or Pediasure discount card. Our service extends to assisting eligible individuals to access the medications they need through patient assistance programs.

Can NiceRx help me get Pediasure if I have insurance?

We may be able to help you to access Pediasure patient assistance in a variety of circumstances. This includes when your insurance company will not pay for your Pediasure medication or if you have a high copay or coinsurance responsibility. We may also be able to help you if you do not have insurance. Please apply online to find out more.
