Reducing the costs of your arthritis medications can make it easier to stay on your recommended regimen. Here are some cost-cutting tips.
Websites like GoodRx.com let you compare local retailer prices. They can filter by location, dosage amounts and quantities.
Look for Manufacturer Coupons
Many pharmaceutical companies offer rebate programs or coupons for certain medications. Review the restrictions and call the toll-free number on their site if you have questions.
Seek Patient Assistance Programs
Many manufacturers help to defray the cost of medications with co-pay cards and assistance programs. Eligibility for these programs is usually based on income, insurance and other factors.
Check Available Government Assistance
Your state health department may offer discount programs. Medicare and Medicaid also provide low-cost options for eligible applicants who are over 65 or low-income.
Research Nonprofits and Other Organizations
Nonprofits, like the Arthritis Foundation, can also be a resource for finding lower cost prescriptions. They can provide resources and information about assistance programs and financial tools.
