Your monthly Synvisc One cost savings if eligible

If you are eligible for the Synvisc One patient assistance program you can receive your medication for free. Our monthly service fee of $49 per medication covers the cost of our services in applying for the program and requesting your ongoing refills on your behalf. If you obtain your Synvisc One through NiceRx, you will only pay $49 a month regardless of the retail price of your medication.

Am I eligible for the Synvisc One patient assistance program?

You could receive your Synvisc One without paying the full retail price if you meet the eligibility criteria for assistance. The eligibility requirements are set by the pharmaceutical companies that are providing assistance programs. At NiceRx, we review each application individually, although the main 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 Synvisc One patient assistance?

We do everything that we can to take the hassle and stress out of applying for patient assistance programs. Simply start by filling in our enrollment application. We will ask for details about your healthcare provider, your insurance, and your household income. This information is required by the pharmaceutical companies you are applying to for assistance. We may also be able to help you access patient assistance for other medications that you have been prescribed, so be sure to tell us about any medications you are taking as well as Synvisc One.

NiceRx will review the information you have provided, and if we determine that you may be eligible for assistance, we will seek to enroll you in the Synvisc One patient assistance program. We will handle the enrollment process for you by working with your healthcare provider and preparing all the required paperwork for your doctor to sign. We will also request your Synvisc One medication refills on your behalf for up to 1 year once you are enrolled in the program.

Is NiceRx a Synvisc One coupons provider?

At NiceRx, we help eligible individuals access the Synvisc One patient assistance program. This means that we are not a Synvisc One coupon, a Synvisc One discount card, or a Synvisc One copay card provider. We do not offer any medication trial offers, or free Synvisc One samples.

Can NiceRx help me get Synvisc One if I have insurance?

We may be able to help you if you have insurance, including if your insurance company will not pay for your Synvisc One medication, or you have a high copay or coinsurance responsibility. We may even be able to assist if you do not have insurance. Please fill in our enrollment application to find out more.

What is Synvisc One?

Synvisc One is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Sanofi Genzyme. It is an elastoviscous fluid produced from chicken combs and is similar to the synovial fluid that surrounds the joints in your body. This fluid acts as a lubricant and shock absorber for the joints.

Synvisc-One is classed as a viscosupplementation and is used to treat knee pain caused by osteoarthritis of the knee. It is usually given after other arthritis medications such as NSAIDs or other analgesics (acetaminophen) have been tried without successful treatment of symptoms.

Combining Synvisc-One injections with other treatment methods, such as physical therapy or medication, it’s possible to relieve your joint pain and make a full recovery.

What doses of Synvisc One are available?

Synvisc One is available in injection form, in the following doses: 16 mg/2 mL, 48 mg/6 mL.

For at least 48 hours after your injection, avoid jogging, strenuous activity, high-impact sports, or weight-bearing activities for longer than 1 hour at a time.

Please read the prescribing information for the full patient information details, and always speak with a healthcare professional about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.

To receive a refund, you must send the letter of denial to us by fax to 888-517-7444, or by e-mail to [email protected] within 30 days of your receipt of such letter. The Refund is your sole and exclusive remedy for any fees you may wish to dispute.
