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.

Ruxience active ingredients
Rituximab-pvvr is a man-made antibody that acts directly at specific points on certain white blood cells known as lymphocytes. Rituximab causes the white blood cell to disintegrate by breaking down the wall of the cell. The exact way in which rituximab does this is not fully understood.
Ruxience is given as an IV infusion directly into a vein. It is not given daily, and your dose will depend on the condition you are receiving treatment for. Ruxience can cause serious brain infections that can lead to disability or death. You should call your doctor immediately if you experience speech, thought, vision, or muscle movement problems.
