Am I eligible for Valchlor patient assistance?

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

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

If we determine that you may be eligible for Valchlor 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 Valchlor patient assistance program, we will also request your Valchlor 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 Valchlor coupon provider?

NiceRx does not provide Valchlor coupons, discount cards or copay cards. We do not offer printable Valchlor manufacturer coupons, Valchlor discounts, rebates, Valchlor savings cards, trial offers, or free samples.

Our service cost is $49 a month per medication, so you will likely save more on your Valchlor medication with NiceRx.
