Your monthly Prozac cost savings if eligible

The Prozac patient assistance program can provide your medication for free. We simply charge $49 per month for each medication to cover the cost of our services. With NiceRx, you will only pay $49 to obtain your Prozac, regardless of the retail price.

Am I eligible for the Prozac patient assistance program?

To find out if you are eligible for Prozac assistance you can apply online using our enrollment application. Each pharmaceutical company sets its eligibility criteria, and we will review your application individually to determine if you may be eligible. The three main factors to consider 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 Prozac patient assistance program?

Our application process aims to make it as easy as possible to apply for the Prozac patient assistance program. The first step is to complete our online enrollment application. We will ask you for details about your healthcare provider, your insurance plan, and your household income as this information is required by the pharmaceutical companies. We may be able to help you apply for other patient assistance programs too, so be sure to tell us about any medications you are taking as well as Prozac.

NiceRx will review your application and determine whether you may be eligible for Prozac assistance. If so, we will handle the full enrollment process for you and prepare all required documents for your healthcare provider to sign. Once you are successfully enrolled in the Prozac patient assistance program, we will help you manage your prescription refills by requesting refills on your behalf throughout your enrollment period. At the end of your enrollment period we will contact you for updated information and seek to re-enroll you so you can continue to access affordable Prozac.

Is NiceRx a Prozac coupon provider?

NiceRx is a service provider that helps eligible individuals access the Prozac patient assistance program. We do not offer trial offers or free Prozac samples. When obtaining your medication through NiceRx, you will only pay $49 a month per medication. This will likely save you more money than if you were to use Prozac coupons, discount cards, or Prozac copay cards.

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

NiceRx may be able to help you if your insurance company will not pay for your Prozac medication. We may also be able to help if you have a high copay or coinsurance responsibility. Whether you have insurance or not, apply online using our enrollment application to find out more.
