Prescription Assistance/Discounts

I saw several posts recently in regards to patients struggling to pay exorbitant prices for pain meds. For 8 months of 2010, i was forced to pay cash for my pain meds due to a huge disaster with my insurance (LONG CRAZY STORY), but i had to switch carriers, and there was a gap in my coverage which forced me to have a waiting period when the new coverage started that would not cover my pain meds. The retail price for my meds was over $1000 per month, and i researched like a mad woman for any discount(s) i could find. I DID come across a few that were EXTREMELY helpful, FREE, and a better discount than the ones offered by the pharmacies at a cost.
First, my Dr gave me a drug discount card for Oxycontin that saved me $75 off each Rx, and then i went on RxAssist, and registered for a discount card that was instant and free- you just print and keep with you like a regular insurance card, and it covers the whole family. You can price your meds and it tells you all the pharmacies in the area and the prices with a prescription pricing tool on the site. I managed to save over $400 a month on the $1000 retail price for oxycontin and percocet until my waiting period ended. I know that for many, $600 a month is STILL unmanageable, but regardless of the price and the medicines, the discount is well worth it for anyone who is looking for some relief. I also found another similar program that is offered by a group of drug companies, and it is called TogetherRx, and my daughter needed antibiotics during that time, and got them for $10 after using the card- they were $240 before the discount. If anyone needs specific links, please feel free to PM me, as i will be happy to send your way.

  • i read part of the drug list for togetherrx today and they give 40% off duragesic patches and avinza- there are other specific drugs listed- but those 2 jumped out at me- as well as having direct links to $30 off coupons in ADDITIONto the % off from the drug company for Avinza... the $30 off is applicable for co-pays as well...
    and again, rxassist is across the board a discount for all meds generic or name brand- savings is confirmed more than the club cards at cvs and walgreens... and is accepted everywhere... just from the few months i was forced to shell out amounts more than many mortgage payments for my meds, it made me sick to my stomach each month... i hope that people who need assistance see this and use the resources...
