How it works
Get started by filling out the online enrollment application to find out if you are eligible for assistance.
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.
We will request documents to be submitted by you and your healthcare provider that are required by the pharmaceutical company to complete your enrollment.
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 Venofer cost savings if eligible
The Venofer 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 Venofer, regardless of the retail price.
Am I eligible for the Venofer patient assistance program?
To find out if you are eligible for Venofer 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 Venofer patient assistance program?
Our application process aims to make it as easy as possible to apply for the Venofer 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 Venofer.
NiceRx will review your application and determine whether you may be eligible for Venofer 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 Venofer 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 Venofer.
Is NiceRx a Venofer coupons provider?
NiceRx is a service provider that helps eligible individuals access the Venofer patient assistance program. We do not offer trial offers or free Venofer 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 Venofer coupons, discount cards, or Venofer copay cards.
Can NiceRx help me get Venofer if I have insurance?
NiceRx may be able to help you if your insurance company will not pay for your Venofer 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.
How much does Venofer cost without insurance?
Venofer prices without insurance will vary depending on how much you buy. Prices will also vary by retailer. As a guide, Venofer intravenous solution (20 mg/mL) typically costs $300 for 25 milliliters.
How much does Venofer cost with insurance?
The copay for Venofer will vary by the terms of your healthcare plan. To find out what you might need to pay for Venofer with insurance, your insurance provider or pharmacist will be able to help you calculate the copay costs with your current insurance.
What is Venofer?
Venofer (iron sucrose injection) is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by American Regent, Inc. Venofer provides IV iron therapy for the treatment of iron deficiency anemia (low red blood cell count) in adult and pediatric patients 2 years of age and older with chronic kidney disease (CKD). Iron is essential to the synthesis of hemoglobin to maintain oxygen transport in the body.
The dosing for iron replacement treatment in pediatric patients with peritoneal-dialysis-dependent CKD, hemodialysis-dependent CKD, or non-dialysis-dependent CKD has not been established.
What doses of Venofer are available?
Venofer is available in injection form, in the following doses: 50 mg/2.5 mL, 100 mg/5 mL, or 200 mg/10 mL (20 mg/mL) in single-dose vials.
Venofer is given as an intravenous iron infusion into a vein. A healthcare provider will give you this injection. The infusion can take up to 2.5 hours to complete.
Always speak with your healthcare professional for medical advice or about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.

Venofer drug interactions
There is currently no data available for Venofer interactions with other medications. However, Venofer may reduce the absorption of concomitantly administered oral iron preparations. Tell your healthcare provider about all the medicines you take, including iron supplements or other iron-based oral medications, prescription drugs, and over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements.
You should not use Venofer if you:
- Are allergic to the active ingredient iron sucrose
- Have had an allergic reaction to any of the other ingredients in Venofer
- Have known serious hypersensitivity to other parenteral iron products
- Are pregnant or are planning to become pregnant – there are no adequate and well-controlled studies in pregnant women. The unborn baby should be carefully monitored during intravenous administration of parenteral irons
Talk to your doctor before using Venofer if you:
- Are taking any of the medications that could interact with Venofer
- Have a history of low blood pressure, hepatitis, or have received a blood transfusion
- Are breastfeeding or are planning to breastfeed – monitor breastfed infants for gastrointestinal toxicity (constipation, diarrhea)
Venofer is the trademark brand name for iron sucrose manufactured by American Regent, Inc. A generic version of iron sucrose is not available. Generic drugs are generally cheaper than brand-name drugs, but you can still find Venofer savings through NiceRx.
