Am I eligible for Premphase patient assistance?

To be eligible for the Premphase patient assistance program, you will need to meet specific eligibility criteria set by the pharmaceutical company. At NiceRx, we review each Premphase 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 Premphase patient assistance program?

Applying for the Premphase 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 Premphase, so please tell us about any medications that you have been prescribed.

If we determine that you may be eligible for Premphase 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 Premphase patient assistance program, we will also request your Premphase medication refills on your behalf for up to 1 year.

What is Premphase?

Premphase is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication distributed by: Wyeth Pharmaceuticals Inc., A subsidiary of Pfizer Inc.

This medication contains estrogen (such as conjugated estrogen, estradiol) and progestin such as medroxyprogesterone. Estrogen is a female sex hormone produced by the ovaries and is necessary for many processes in the body. Conjugated estrogens are a mixture of estrogen hormones. Medroxyprogesterone is a form of progesterone, a female hormone important for regulating ovulation and menstruation.

Premphase is a combination medicine used to treat the symptoms of menopause such as hot flashes and vaginal dryness and to prevent osteoporosis in menopausal women. Prempro also contains both conjugated estrogens and medroxyprogesterone acetate.

What doses of Premphase are available?

Premphase is available in tablet dosage forms in the following doses:

  • 0.625 mg conjugated estrogen oval/maroon Premarin
  • 0.625 mg conjugated estrogen plus 5 mg medroxyprogesterone acetate oval/light-blue Prempro

The 28-day Premphase treatment consists of two differently colored pills, 14 of each color. Follow the patient’s instructions about which pills to take on days 1 through 14 and which pills to take on days 15 through 28.

Self-examine your breasts for lumps monthly, and have regular mammograms. Your doctor should check your progress on a regular basis to decide whether you should continue this treatment. Always speak with a healthcare professional for medical advice or about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.
