Your monthly Ziana cost savings if eligible

If you are eligible to receive your Ziana prescription through the patient assistance program, your medication will be free. We charge a flat monthly service fee of $49 per medication to cover the cost of our services.

Am I eligible for Ziana patient assistance?

To be eligible for the Ziana patient assistance program, you will need to meet specific eligibility criteria set by the pharmaceutical company. At NiceRx, we review each Ziana enrollment application individually. The main factors considered 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 Ziana patient assistance program?

Applying for the Ziana patient assistance program through NiceRx is simple. Begin by completing the enrollment application on our website. We will ask for details about your healthcare provider, your insurance plan, and your household income. This information is required by the pharmaceutical manufacturers that supply your medication. We may be able to help you access patient assistance for other medications as well as Ziana, so please tell us about any medications that you have been prescribed.

If we determine that you may be eligible for Ziana assistance, we will handle the full enrollment process on your behalf. We will work with your healthcare provider to prepare and submit all the documents required for you to enroll. If you are successfully enrolled in the Ziana patient assistance program, we will also request your Ziana medication refills on your behalf for up to 1 year. At the end of your enrollment period, we will contact you for updated details and seek to re-enroll you in the program.

Is NiceRx a Ziana coupons provider?

NiceRx does not provide Ziana coupons, discount cards or copay cards. We do not offer printable Ziana manufacturer coupons, Ziana discounts, rebates, Ziana savings cards, trial offers, or free samples. We are a service provider that helps eligible individuals access patient assistance programs. Our service cost is $49 a month per medication, so you will likely save more on your Ziana medication with NiceRx.

Can NiceRx help me get Ziana if I have insurance?

NiceRx may be able to help you access Ziana patient assistance if:

  • You have a high copay or coinsurance responsibility for Ziana
  • Your insurance company will not pay for your Ziana prescription
  • You do not have insurance

What is Ziana?

Ziana gel is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Bausch Health. It is a lincosamide topical antibiotic and retinoid combination product indicated to treat acne vulgaris in patients 12 years or older.

What doses of Ziana are available?

Ziana is available in a topical gel dosage form, in the following doses: Clindamycin phosphate 1.2% and tretinoin 0.025% gel.

Apply a pea-sized amount to the entire face at bedtime. Do not apply to eyes, mouth, angles of the nose, or mucous membranes. Ziana will make your skin more sensitive to the sun, which means you may get a sunburn more easily. Avoid tanning booths and sunlamps. Wear sunscreen daily. Also, weather extremes such as wind or cold may cause skin irritation.

Always speak with a healthcare professional for medical advice or about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.
