Your monthly Renflexis cost savings if eligible

If you are eligible for the Renflexis 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 Renflexis prescription for just $49 a month, regardless of the retail price of your medication.

Am I eligible for the Renflexis patient assistance program?

We will review your application to determine whether you are eligible for the Renflexis 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 Renflexis patient assistance program?

We make it as easy as possible to apply for the Renflexis patient assistance program. The first step is to complete our enrollment application. Tell us about any medications you are taking, including Renflexis. 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 Renflexis 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 Renflexis patient assistance program, and we will automatically request your Renflexis medication refills for up to 1 year.
