Your monthly Tazorac cost savings if eligible

The Tazorac patient assistance program can provide your medication for free. We simply charge $49 per month for each medication to cover the cost of our services. With NiceRx, you will only pay $49 to obtain your Tazorac, regardless of the retail price.

Am I eligible for the Tazorac patient assistance program?

To find out if you are eligible for Tazorac 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 Tazorac patient assistance program?

Our application process aims to make it as easy as possible to apply for the Tazorac patient assistance program. The first step is to complete our online enrollment application. We will 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 Tazorac.

NiceRx will review your application and determine whether you may be eligible for Tazorac assistance. If so, we will 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 Tazorac patient assistance program, we will help you manage your prescription refills by requesting refills on your behalf throughout your enrollment period. At the end of your enrollment period, we will contact you for updated information and seek to re-enroll you so you can continue to access affordable Tazorac.

Is NiceRx a Tazorac coupon provider?

NiceRx is a service provider that helps eligible individuals access the Tazorac patient assistance program. We do not offer trial offers or free Tazorac samples. When obtaining your medication through NiceRx, you will only pay $49 a month per medication. This will likely save you more money than if you were to use Tazorac coupons, discount cards, or Tazorac copay cards.

Can NiceRx help me get Tazorac cheaper if I have insurance?

NiceRx may be able to help you if your insurance company will not pay for your Tazorac medication. We may also be able to help if you have a high copay or coinsurance responsibility. Whether you have insurance or not, apply online using our enrollment application to find out more.

Tazorac prices without insurance will vary depending on how much you buy. Prices will also vary by retailer. As a guide, Tazorac topical gel 0.05% typically costs $450 for 30 grams.

How much does Tazorac cost with insurance?

The copay for Tazorac will vary by the terms of your healthcare plan. To find out what you might need to pay for Tazorac with insurance, your insurance provider or pharmacist will be able to help you calculate the copay costs with your current insurance.

What is Tazorac?

Tazorac is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Allergan. Tazorac cream 0.05% and 0.1% is used to treat plaque psoriasis topically. Tazorac Cream 0.1% is used for the treatment of acne vulgaris.

What doses of Tazorac are available?

Tazorac is available in cream form, in the following doses: 0.05% and 0.1%.

Apply a thin layer to the affected area only once daily in the evening. If you are using Tazorac to treat acne, wash and dry the affected area(s). Wash your hands after applying. Wash the cream off areas you do not need to treat to prevent skin irritation. Do not apply to areas of skin affected by other skin conditions such as eczema as it may cause severe irritation. Do not get this medication in your eyes or mouth. If you are using a moisturizer cream or lotion, apply it at least an hour before applying this medication.

Tazorac may make your skin more sensitive to the sun. Limit your time in the sun, and avoid tanning beds and sunlamps. Use sunscreen and wear protective clothing when outdoors.

Always speak with your healthcare professional for medical advice 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.
