How it works
Get started by filling out the online enrollment application to find out if you are eligible.
NiceRx verifies your eligibility for medication assistance and notifies you if you are qualified. The pharmaceutical company provides your medication for free and you only pay our service fee.
You may be required to submit further information and documents required by the pharmaceutical company which can be securely uploaded online.
Your application is created and sent to your doctor for signature. At this stage, you will be billed $49 and will not be billed again until you receive your first medication delivery.
Your application is sent to the pharmaceutical company. You will be billed again once you receive your medication. We handle the entire ordering process including requesting ongoing refills.

If you are eligible for the Verquvo patient assistance program, the cost of your medication will be free. We only charge $49 per month for each medication, to cover our service fees. You could receive your Verquvo prescription for just $49 a month, regardless of the retail price of your medication.
Am I eligible for the Verquvo patient assistance program?
We will review your application to determine whether you are eligible for the Verquvo patient assistance program. Each program has its own eligibility criteria which is set by the pharmaceutical companies, however the factors considered by most programs are:

- I am uninsured or my insurance doesn’t cover my medication
- I meet certain income eligibility requirements
How do I apply for the Verquvo patient assistance program?
We make it as easy as possible to apply for the Verquvo patient assistance program. The first step is to complete our enrollment application. Tell us about any medications you are taking, including Verquvo. We will also ask for details about your healthcare provider, insurance, and your household income. This information is required by the pharmaceutical manufacturers who ship your medication.
If we determine that you may be eligible for Verquvo assistance, we will handle the application process for you. We will work directly with your healthcare provider to prepare your application documents. Once we have received the signed application and supporting documents, we will submit them to the patient assistance program on your behalf. Our service continues once you are enrolled in the Verquvo patient assistance program, and we will automatically request your Verquvo medication refills for up to 1 year.

What is Verquvo?
Verquvo has FDA approval (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) and is manufactured by Bayer and Merck. It is a soluble guanylate cyclase (sGC) stimulator, used to reduce the risk of cardiovascular death and heart failure (HF), hospitalization following a hospitalization for heart failure, or need for outpatient IV diuretics, in adults with symptomatic chronic heart failure and reduced ejection fraction less than 45%.
What doses of Verquvo are available?
Verquvo is available in tablet form, in the following doses: 2.5 mg, 5 mg, and 10 mg
The recommended starting dose is 2.5 mg tablets orally once daily with food. Double the dose every 2 weeks to reach the target maintenance dose of 10 mg once daily. Tablets may be crushed and mixed with water if patients have problems swallowing.
Always speak with your healthcare provider about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.
Verquvo active ingredients
Vericiguat is a stimulator of soluble guanylate cyclase (sGC), an enzyme in the nitric oxide (NO) signaling pathway. Heart failure is associated with the impaired ability to produce NO and decreased activity of sGC, which may contribute to myocardial and vascular dysfunction. By stimulating sGC, vericiguat increases levels of intracellular cGMP, which leads to smooth muscle relaxation and vasodilation.
The Victoria trial was a randomized, parallel-group, placebo-controlled, double-blind, event-driven, multi-center trial, comparing Verquvo and placebo in over 5000 adult patients with symptomatic chronic heart failure (New York Heart Association [NYHA] class II-IV) and left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) less than 45%, following a worsening heart failure event. A worsening heart failure event was defined as heart failure hospitalization within 6 months before randomization or the use of outpatient IV diuretics for heart failure within 3 months before randomization.
Verquvo side effects
The most common side effects of Verquvo in clinical trials include:
- Hypotension (low blood pressure)
Your doctor will assess the benefits of using Verquvo against your risk of side effects. Patients are encouraged to report negative side effects or adverse reactions of Verquvo to the FDA. Visit www.fda.gov/medwatch, or call 1-800-FDA-1088.
Verquvo drug interactions
Verquvo can interact with other medications. These include:
- PDE-5 Inhibitors
This list is not exhaustive and other prescription drugs may interact with Verquvo.
You should not use Verquvo if you:
- Are allergic to the active ingredient vericiguat
- Are allergic to any of the other ingredients in Verquvo
- Are pregnant or are planning to become pregnant – Embryo-fetal toxicity – do not give Verquvo to pregnant women as it may cause fetal harm. Females of reproductive potential must use effective forms of contraception during treatment and for one month after stopping treatment. Your healthcare provider will do a pregnancy test to make sure that you are not pregnant before you start treatment. See the full prescribing information and medication guide for the complete boxed warning, including the information about birth defects if taken during pregnancy
- Are breastfeeding or planning to breastfeed
Talk to your doctor before using Verquvo if you:
- Are taking any of the medications that could interact with Verquvo
- Are using other soluble guanylate cyclase (sGC) stimulators
Verquvo is the trademark brand name for vericiguat manufactured by Bayer and Merck. A generic version of vericiguat is not available. Generic drugs are generally cheaper than brand-name drugs, but you can still find Verquvo savings through NiceRx.
