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.

Am I eligible for Zegalogue patient assistance?
We review each Zegalogue enrollment application individually to determine if you are eligible. Each assistance program has its own eligibility criteria and the factors considered by most programs 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 Zegalogue patient assistance program?
Our process makes it as easy as possible to apply for the Zegalogue patient assistance program. Begin by completing the enrollment application form on our website. Tell us about any medications that you are taking, including Zegalogue, your healthcare provider, your insurance plan, and your household income. This information is required by the pharmaceutical manufacturers who will supply the medication, so it is important to make sure this information is accurate and up to date.
We will review the information that you have provided to determine whether you are eligible for patient assistance. If we can pre-qualify you for assistance, NiceRx will handle the full enrollment process on your behalf. If you are approved by the pharmaceutical company, you will typically start receiving your medication in 6 – 8 weeks.

What is Zegalogue?
Zegalogue is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Zealand Pharma. It is an antihypoglycemic agent with FDA approval for the treatment of severe hypoglycemia (low blood sugar levels) in pediatric and adult patients with type 1 diabetes aged 6 years and above.
What doses of Zegalogue are available?
Zegalogue is available in injection form, in the following doses: 0.6 mg/0.6 mL single-dose autoinjector, and 0.6 mg/0.6 mL single-dose prefilled syringe.
Zegalogue is for subcutaneous injection only. Administer the injection into the lower abdomen, buttocks, thigh, or outer upper arm. Call for emergency assistance immediately after administering the dose. If no response is seen after 15 minutes, give an additional dose from another device while waiting for emergency assistance.
