Am I eligible for the Velphoro patient assistance program?
To find out if you are eligible for Velphoro 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 Velphoro patient assistance program?
Our application process aims to make it as easy as possible to apply for the Velphoro 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 Velphoro.
NiceRx will review your application and determine whether you may be eligible for Velphoro 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 Velphoro 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 Velphoro.

What is Velphoro?
Velphoro contains the prescription medicine sucroferric oxyhydroxide. It is a phosphate binder and is used to control phosphorus levels in people who have chronic kidney disease and are receiving dialysis treatment.
Velphoro should be taken as prescribed by your doctor. You should not use this medicine for longer than recommended by your doctor or in a different amount to that prescribed. The tablets are chewed or crushed and best taken with meals. You may need regular blood tests while taking Velphoro.
Velphoro active ingredients
Exchange of phosphorus in the patient’s diet with hydroxyl groups or water in sucroferric oxyhydroxide occurs within the gastrointestinal tract. The excess phosphate is removed from a patient’s body in their feces. As a result of this process, of reducing phosphate absorbed from the diet, both phosphorus and calcium-phosphorus product levels are decreased.
