Looking for dependable ways to save on your Basaglar prefilled pens? Insulin glargine, sold under the brand name Basaglar, is prescribed to achieve glycemic control in people with type 1 and 2 diabetes. Unfortunately, today’s high medication costs make it challenging for many, especially those lacking adequate commercial insurance, to afford their monthly prescriptions. Are you tired of continually searching for a Basaglar savings card, coupon, or governmental program to reduce your out-of-pocket cost?

That’s where our team at The Rx Advocates comes in. We aim to alleviate your financial burden, freeing you from worry about how you’re going to afford your essential medications. We have helped many people save on their monthly prescriptions by guiding them through the application process for pharmaceutical assistance programs. These programs can lower costs much more than a mere coupon or savings card.

Accessing the Basaglar patient assistance program with The Rx Advocates

Curious to know how The Rx Advocates can help you access the Basaglar patient assistance program? The Rx Advocates is a drug advocacy program that offers financial assistance to people struggling to pay for their prescription medications. This help comes in the form of pharmaceutical assistance programs, also known as patient assistance programs, which are offered by pharmaceutical manufacturers. For example, the Lilly Diabetes Solution Center offers discounts on Lilly insulin. Anyone can apply for a patient assistance program, but it’s challenging to identify those most appropriate for a given patient, and the application process is exhausting. We can make your life much easier by handling the application process for you!

People who work with us never have to worry about additional out-of-pocket costs or hidden fees. We charge a one-time enrollment fee of $35. Our monthly service fee then ranges from $80–$110, depending on the number of medications you need financial assistance with. Here’s a look at our pricing model:

  • 1 Medication (Basaglar only) – $80 per month
  • 2 Medications (Basaglar + 1 other) – $90 per month
  • 3 Medications (Basaglar + 2 others) – $100 per month
  • 4+ Medications — $110 per month

The Rx Advocates is not a mail order pharmacy, insulin value program, governmental program, savings card, or coupon provider. Instead, we work with patient assistance programs to make our clients’ monthly medications much more affordable. These programs lift the heavy financial burden of prescription medication, allowing people to focus on other important aspects of life. Working with us can save you hundreds or even thousands of dollars every month!

The cost of Basaglar without patient assistance

As of April 2024, the average retail cost of Basaglar is $389.02.

Most users cannot afford to pay such a high price for Basaglar or other Lilly insulins every month. As a result, they often seek ways to reduce the cost or simply go without the medication they need, putting their health at risk.

Prescription medication costs can also be confusing and difficult to predict. Due to insurance differences, people may pay vastly different prices for the same drug. The price you pay for Basaglar depends on several variables, including your home address and your pharmacy’s location (prices in cities are often higher than those in other areas), the dosage prescribed by your doctor, and whether your commercial insurance plan covers prescription drugs. The Rx Advocates, however, can help you access patient assistance programs to get Basaglar and your other prescription medications at predictable and significantly lower out-of-pocket cost than you can with a savings card or coupon. Contact us today to see if you qualify!

  • For couples, your combined annual income is less than $60,000
  • For larger families, your annual household income is less than $100,000

Our team at The Rx Advocates can guide you in accessing whichever pharmaceutical assistance program you need. Contact us today!

Basaglar coupon restrictions

While Basaglar coupons can provide some savings, they come with several restrictions you must consider:

  • Coupons have expiration dates, limiting the time frame in which they can be used.
  • Discounts may apply only to certain dosages or quantities. This means those who need large amounts or doses may not qualify for savings.
  • Basaglar coupons may not be accepted at all pharmacies, limiting where you can fill your prescription.
  • Coupons may have a monthly cap on savings, limiting them to covering only a small percentage of a medication’s cost.
  • People who receive benefits from a governmental program, such as Medicare Part D, may not qualify to use coupons for further drug assistance.
  • Some coupons are available only to those who meet certain eligibility criteria, such as specific insurance plans or income levels.
  • A coupon might not count toward the out-of-pocket maximum for your prescription claims, leaving you with a substantial bill.
  • The savings offered by coupons make little difference when the drug’s wholesale acquisition cost is high. For example, if a drug retails for $10,000, even a coupon offering 50% off won’t make it affordable for the average person.

The Basaglar patient assistance program is a much better option for long-term savings and convenience than a Basaglar savings card or coupon. Such programs offer ongoing discounts, so patients save money every time they fill their prescriptions.

Basaglar uses, alternatives, and other FAQs

Basaglar is a long-acting insulin that controls high blood sugar in adults and children with type 1 or type 2 diabetes. This insulin glargine injection requires about 90 minutes to take effect and keeps working for at least 24 hours. The Basaglar prefilled pen is not recommended for patients currently experiencing diabetic ketoacidosis, which is a medical emergency.

The Basaglar dosage recommended for a specific individual depends upon a few factors:

  • Metabolic needs
  • Blood glucose monitor readings
  • Current level of glycemic control
  • Type of diabetes
  • History of insulin use

Insulin glargine injections are available as prefilled pens that contain 300 units (3 mL) of insulin. These pens can be used for multiple injections if the pen-needle is changed. Patients typically inject Basaglar once daily under the skin in areas such as the upper arm, lower abdomen, or thigh. For best results, it should be taken at the same time each day. Consult with your physician about how to avoid injecting the wrong dose.

Always stay informed about any drug you are taking and consult with your doctor frequently to ensure you understand your treatment regimen. Before starting Basaglar, note the following precautions:

  • Never share your Basaglar injectable needles, as this puts you at risk for a serious infection, such as HIV
  • Carefully review the important information on your prescription insulin label
  • Do not mix Basaglar with any other insulin medication
  • Before taking Basaglar, always check your blood glucose level to prevent low blood sugar

For those uncomfortable about using Basaglar, there are many alternatives to consider:

However,  when considering alternatives, it’s important to note that insulin products are not interchangeable on a unit-to-unit basis. Any change in insulin should be done under the guidance of your doctor.

Adverse effects of Basaglar

Common adverse effects of Basaglar

Every drug has the potential to cause adverse effects, which are unwanted responses to a recommended dose of medication. Most common adverse reactions resolve on their own and do not need medical attention. Some, however, may become persistent or serious. Some common adverse reactions of Basaglar are:

  • Hypoglycemia (low blood sugar)
  • Injection site reactions, such as thickened skin, redness, bleeding, swelling, or itching
  • Swelling in the lower limbs
  • Body rash

Serious adverse effects

Although rarely reported, Basaglar may cause serious adverse reactions. Seek medical attention immediately if you notice any of the following signs and symptoms:
