Plavix cost assistance

Common Questions and Answers about Plavix cost assistance


Avatar m tn My insurance is not paying for it and its cost is 280.00 where I live. The other ER Doctor sent a Prescription for Plavix which is covered. Is this a good choice? He was referred to an Internist and Urologist for prompt treatment. He is 47 and has had irregular heart beats incidents.
333672 tn?1273792789 Apparently, Acorda has both a co-pay assistance program and a patient assistance program for the uninsured and underinsured. There are some details at with more info in the comments. And yes, the base price for a 30-day supply is $1,056. The way the co-pay program works is that if your co-pay is more than $40, Acorda will pay the difference so the patient's max out-of-pocket is $40.
1679243 tn?1307674938 This is more of a question about Warfarin, Plavix, blood thinning treatment ect... I was swimming yesterday with my kids and was rubbing my eyes a good bit. Afterwards my wife noticed my left eye was bleeding, not pouring blood but there is blood in the white part of my eye. Doesn't hurt or bother me it's just a nice size blood spot. I've been on Warfarin and Plavix and a daily baby aspirin for over 6 months to treat my heart disease.
Avatar f tn I would be getting my uterus and cervix removed. How much do they cost out of pocket and is there any kind of financial assistance that would help me pay for the medical bill?
Avatar m tn Pfizer has a patient assistance program that may help you. Go to and you can search to see what they may have available. You may also want to check with your local social services department - you may qualify for some assistance through them since your medical costs are so high. Best of luck!
Avatar n tn looking for assistance to obtain advair at little or no cost.
315318 tn?1353251800 Well, plavix is coming off patent next year so the cost should come down substantially. In my case though, I got a DES placed in my LAD in December 2009. My cardio said, I am not responsive to Plavix, but not to worry. Start taking this new related medication called Effient. Effient, however, comes with greater chance of bleeding and it is expensive.
Avatar f tn The meds can cost upwards of USD $30,000/year.
Avatar m tn Hi, I'm not in your situation but just wanted to suggest something I've seen others here talk about. Apparently Teva has a patient assistance program who provides substantial support. It seems to me that the co-pay can be pretty nominal. I believe the first step in making a request is to contact Shared Solutions. Good luck!
Avatar f tn t want to go back for fear of being labelled a hypochondriac, but the pain is very real and it occurred to me this morning that I could possibly have a collapsed stent. I stopped taking plavix 7 months ago because the cost is prohibitive. The doctor didn't seem concerned about that, and not knowing that I needed to take the aspirin forever, I stopped taking that too, about 4 months ago. What should I be doing. I have started taking the aspirin again, three days ago.
Avatar m tn hello again, thanks to all the people that responded. was wondering about the cost of meds. interferon and ribavirin, im checking with my ins. to see what they will cover. i may have misspoke about this thing on i dont think it is herbal? it deals with fatty liver tissue. but its only 50 bucks to read about it so i dont really have anything to lose. going back to doc in 3 mo. not sure why till i decide on tx. if tx takes care of virus, do people go back to normal lifestyle?
Avatar f tn A drug coated stent was put in and he was put on plavix and aspirin. His heart has been heavily damaged. We were told that he needs bypass surgery and it has been scheduled for March 11. The doctor said he needs to stop plavix 7 days before. I'm worried because he just will have had the stent put in at just over 3 weeks.
Avatar n tn Been on Plavix for 6 years for 5 DES stents. Very recent, I had an event monitor for 3 years of ongoing, sporadic irregular heart beats that causes 5-8 seconds of dizziness/lightheadedness. Finally caught it on the event Monitor. Doctor said monitor showed Atrial flutter in the upper chambers of heart. Told me to get off the Plavix and she would RX Pradexa which is like coumadin.(never been on coumadin or heparin) I am 74 years old and also take Nexium, Crestor, Avalide 150/12.
612551 tn?1450022175 The Plavix is widely advertised and available in the USA. I have discussed with my cardiologist in past years. He said, no way is it a substitute fo warfarin... but again I tolerate warfarin well. But too, I've never had any severe cuts while on warfarin.
2059648 tn?1439766665 You can get this treatment with co-pay assistance. This would make your cost $5.
Avatar f tn Is there help out there for the cost of Suboxone8/2mg. I take it three times a day for pain control under the direct supervision of my Pain Management Physician. I have been on it for almost 3 years now and have lost my supplemental health insurance. I have no Rx coverage anymore. My doctor does not give out sample, of course.
2105194 tn?1333812786 most drug companies will offer discount cards based on your income. Also check out the partnership for prescription assistance website. They have many resources. It typically is a form for you and your doctor to fill out.
Avatar m tn My cardiologist said the studies show that it could help me in the long run staying on effient passed the 12 months. If I can afford the cost he recommends it. I had a drug coated stent in the LAD 11 months ago. I ended up with an embilical hernia from being inactive and thenover lifting during my recovery. I need corrective surgery when I can stop the effient. (its not an emergency yet) I went through the cardiac rehab and was looking forward to getting off some of the meds.
Avatar m tn I lost my medical insurance and need help with maintaining my prescription of Trileptal. I was told that the internet coupons may not be available in Maine where I live. Other assistance, maybe directly from manufacture? Only need assistance for 6 mos.
Avatar m tn Eat healthy, a low salt and oily diet and exercise regularly. To improve blood flow to the ischemic areas plavix is indicated. The drug is used to prevent heart attacks, strokes, and to treat peripheral vascular disease and claudication. Please discuss this with your doctor am sure he will provide further assistance. Regards.
