  • Pre-qualification

    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.

  • Submit documents

    We will request documents to be submitted by you and your healthcare provider that are required by the pharmaceutical company to complete your enrollment.

  • Receive medication

    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.

Your monthly Thiola cost savings if eligible

The Thiola 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 Thiola, regardless of the retail price.

Am I eligible for the Thiola patient assistance program?

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

Our application process aims to make it as easy as possible to apply for the Thiola 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 Thiola.

NiceRx will review your application and determine whether you may be eligible for Thiola 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 Thiola 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 Thiola.

Is NiceRx a Thiola coupons provider?

NiceRx is a service provider that helps eligible individuals access the Thiola patient assistance program. We do not offer trial offers or free Thiola 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 Thiola coupons, discount cards, or Thiola copay cards.

Can NiceRx help me get Thiola if I have insurance?

NiceRx may be able to help you if your insurance company will not pay for your Thiola 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.

What is Thiola?

Thiola is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Mission Pharmacal Company.

What doses of Thiola are available?

Thiola is available in delayed-release tablet dosage form, in the following doses: 100 mg and 300 mg.

The recommended starting dose in adult patients is 800 mg/day. The recommended initial dosage in pediatric patients is 20 kg and greater is 15 mg/kg/day. Administer in 3 divided doses at the same times each day, with or without food. Swallow the tablets whole. Measure urinary cystine 1 month after starting treatment and every 3 months thereafter.
