If you are eligible to receive your Segluromet prescription through the patient assistance program, your medication will be free. We charge a flat monthly service fee of $49 per medication to cover the cost of our services.

Am I eligible for Segluromet patient assistance?

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

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

If we determine that you may be eligible for Segluromet 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 Segluromet patient assistance program, we will also request your Segluromet medication refills on your behalf for up to 1 year. At the end of your enrollment period, we will contact you for updated details and seek to re-enroll you in the program.

Is NiceRx a Segluromet coupon provider?

NiceRx does not provide Segluromet coupons, discount cards, or copay cards. We do not offer printable Segluromet manufacturer coupons, Segluromet discounts, rebates, Segluromet savings cards, trial offers, or free samples. We are a service provider that helps eligible individuals access patient assistance programs. Our service cost is $49 a month per medication, so you will likely save more on your Segluromet medication with NiceRx.

What is Segluromet?

Segluromet is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Merck. It is a combination of ertugliflozin, a sodium-glucose co-transporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitor, and metformin, a biguanide, used in combination with diet and exercise to improve blood sugar control in adults with type 2 diabetes mellitus. Segluromet is not for the treatment of type 1 diabetes mellitus or diabetic ketoacidosis.

What doses of Segluromet are available?

Segluromet is available in tablet form, in the following doses: Ertugliflozin 2.5 mg and metformin hydrochloride 500 mg, ertugliflozin 2.5 mg and metformin hydrochloride 1,000 mg, ertugliflozin 7.5 mg and metformin hydrochloride 500 mg, ertugliflozin 7.5 mg and metformin hydrochloride 1,000 mg.

Take Segluromet twice daily with meals, with a gradual dose increase. Regular medical checks such as kidney function, liver function, blood sugar, hemoglobin A1c, ketones, complete blood counts, cholesterol, and vitamin B12 should be done before you start taking this medication and during treatment.

Please read the medication guide and always speak with a healthcare professional for medical advice about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.

Enrollees enjoy a full-service solution, as NiceRx assists them and their physicians with the entire process. We prepare all required documents for the physician to sign, help enrollees manage all prescription refills, monitor eligibility criteria, and maintain enrollment.
