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 Vfend cost savings if eligible
The Vfend 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 Vfend, regardless of the retail price.
Am I eligible for the Vfend patient assistance program?
To find out if you are eligible for Vfend 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 Vfend patient assistance program?
Our application process aims to make it as easy as possible to apply for the Vfend 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 Vfend.
NiceRx will review your application and determine whether you may be eligible for Vfend 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 Vfend 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 Vfend.
Is NiceRx a Vfend coupons provider?
NiceRx is a service provider that helps eligible individuals access the Vfend patient assistance program. We do not offer trial offers or free Vfend 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 Vfend coupons, discount cards, or Vfend copay cards.
Can NiceRx help me get Vfend if I have insurance?
NiceRx may be able to help you if your insurance company will not pay for your Vfend 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.

Vfend prices without insurance will vary depending on how much you buy. Prices will also vary by retailer. As a guide, Vfend intravenous powder for injection 200 mg typically costs $70 for 1 powder for injection.
How much does Vfend cost with insurance?
The copay for Vfend will vary by the terms of your healthcare plan. To find out what you might need to pay for Vfend with insurance, your insurance provider or pharmacist will be able to help you calculate the copay costs with your current insurance.
