The Soliqua patient assistance program is available to eligible individuals who are unable to afford their Soliqua medication. At NiceRx, we can help you to enroll in the program for $49 per month.* We work directly with your healthcare provider to submit your enrollment application on your behalf. By handling the full enrollment process for you, we can help you get easy and affordable access to the medications you need. If you’re successfully enrolled in the program, we’ll also request prescription refills on your behalf for up to 1 year.
Your monthly Soliqua cost savings if eligible
The Soliqua patient assistance program can provide your medication for free. We simply charge $49 a month per medication to cover the cost of our services. With NiceRx, you’ll only pay $49 to obtain your Soliqua, regardless of the retail price.
Am I eligible for the Soliqua patient assistance program?
To find out if you are eligible for Soliqua 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 Soliqua patient assistance program?
Our application process aims to make it as easy as possible to apply for the Soliqua patient assistance program. The first step is to complete our online enrollment application. We’ll 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 Soliqua.
NiceRx will review your application and determine whether you may be eligible for Soliqua assistance. If so, we’ll 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 Soliqua patient assistance program, we’ll help you manage your prescription refills by requesting refills on your behalf throughout your enrollment period. At the end of your enrollment period, we’ll contact you for updated information and seek to re-enroll you so you can continue to access affordable Soliqua.
Is NiceRx a Soliqua coupons provider?
NiceRx is a service provider that helps eligible individuals access the Soliqua patient assistance program. We do not offer trial offers or free Soliqua samples.

Can NiceRx help me get Soliqua if I have insurance?

Soliqua prices without insurance will vary by retailer, but as a guide, a pack of 15, 100 ml-33 mcg Soliqua self-injecting pens will cost around $900.
What is Soliqua?
Soliqua is a prescription medication given to adults with type 2 diabetes to help lower their blood sugar (glucose) when used alongside exercise and diet changes. It is a type 2 diabetes medication that combines a type of insulin with a medication that stimulates your pancreas to release more insulin, helping to lower your blood glucose. You take Soliqua by injecting it under your skin (subcutaneous injection), usually once a day in the morning, using a pre-filled, self-injecting pen.
Soliqua active ingredients
Soliqua contains two active ingredients: insulin glargine and lixisenatide. They work together to help lower your blood glucose.
Insulin glargine is a type of synthetic (man-made) insulin that works in a similar way to the insulin your body makes naturally. When you inject Soliqua, insulin glargine travels around your body in your bloodstream and attaches to cells that need glucose, helping them absorb glucose from your blood. The only difference between insulin glargine and the insulin your pancreas makes is that insulin glargine is slower acting so works over a longer time period, up to 24 hours.
Lixisenatide is a type of drug called a GLP-1 receptor agonist. It attaches to the beta cells in your pancreas that make insulin at sites on the cells’ surfaces called GLP-1 receptors. This stimulates the receptors, making your beta cells produce more insulin. Lixisenatide also encourages your pancreas to grow more beta cells, helping your pancreas to produce higher levels of insulin, reversing any declines in your body’s insulin production.

The most common side effects caused by Soliqua include:
- Nausea (feeling sick)
