For many patients, paying out of pocket for their prescription medications can get much too expensive. Finding a coupon or other types of discounts can result in substantial savings, which most people desperately need. Basaglar is a medication that many people with type 1 or type 2 diabetes need. But if it is too expensive, they may try to go without it to save money.

At The Rx Advocates, we want to help as many people as possible so they can have access to their medications on a monthly basis. There are many of them – including Basaglar – that are very expensive. But when patients work with us to get savings, they will find them much more affordable.

Who are The Rx Advocates?

The Rx Advocates provides help to people who need to find a way to afford their monthly medications. We work with more than 100 patient assistance programs all over the United States to get people the savings they need. Anyone can apply to patient assistance programs, but it can be hard to find the right one. We make this process much easier by taking over the application process for our patients. 

When patients work with us, they can rest assured that they will be saving money every month. We never charge any hidden fees to our patients, and we are very transparent about our pricing. Our monthly service fee ranges from $60-$90, and this all depends on the number of medications the patient needs. They can save hundreds of dollars a month or thousands of dollars every year by working with us.

The Rx Advocates does not offer coupons, and we are not a health insurance plan. We do not have prescription discount cards. But because of our work with patient assistance programs, our patients will find that getting their monthly medications is much more affordable. This lifts a heavy burden and allows them to concentrate more on staying healthy.

Basaglar Prescription Discounts:
Frequently Asked Questions

Basaglar (insulin glargine) is a long-acting form of insulin. It is used to help improve blood sugar control in adults and children with type 1 diabetes mellitus and in adults with type 2 diabetes mellitus. 

This medication is not recommended for patients currently experiencing diabetic ketoacidosis, which is a medical emergency. 

Basaglar’s dosage is dependent upon a few different factors, namely:

  • The patient’s metabolic needs.
  • The patient’s blood glucose monitor readings.
  • The patient’s glycemic control.
  • The type of diabetes the patient has.
  • The patient’s history of prior insulin use.

Basaglar is available in two different forms; in a 3mL insulin pen called a KwikPen. These pens contain 300 units of insulin and can be used for multiple injections when the pen needle is changed. 

The KwikPens expire 28 days after opening them or removing them from the fridge. 

It is contraindicated for people who are having episodes of hypoglycemia or low blood sugar.

Basaglar only needs to be administered once every day. It should always be taken at the same time of day for the best results.

The side effects of insulin include:

  • Low blood sugar levels.
  • A severe allergic reaction.
  • Injection site reaction
  • Itching or rash at site of injection
  • Weight gain
  • Fluid retention
  • Lipodystrophy

Patients who experience side effects should call their doctor’s office for advice. 

There are a few other long-acting insulins that a doctor may choose to prescribe instead of Basaglar. They include:

As of August 2021, the average retail cost of Basaglar is $395.37.

The price of Basaglar will depend on a few different factors. The locations of the patient and their pharmacy play a role in determining the price. Also, the dosage can drive the cost up or down.

The average price of Basaglar is typically much higher than most people can afford to pay every month. As a result, they will often search for other ways to cover the cost or simply go without the medication they need.

Pharmaceutical companies, prescription websites, and others will often offer prescription drug coupons to patients. While they can be somewhat helpful, they are not the same as what is offered through patient assistance programs. The Rx Advocates does not have coupons for Basaglar or for any other medication. But we still believe that people should understand how they work. 

When prescribed a new medication, patients will typically look online to find a way to save money. Most coupons only offer short-term savings, but they do nothing to lower the price of the drug after that first prescription.

Many online coupons have expiration dates, which means they will not offer any much savings to patients in the long term.

Basaglar coupons may save people a little bit of money. But most people will still end up paying thousands of dollars out of pocket for their medication every year. No one should have to pay that much for life-saving medicine.
