Combigan Coupon & Assistance Programs
If you’ve been prescribed Combigan to treat your glaucoma or ocular hypertension, you may be concerned about the cost of this medication. Without insurance coverage, the monthly cost of Combigan can be a significant financial burden for many people. However, there are options available to help you save money on your medication.
One option is to use a Combigan coupon or savings card, which can provide some relief. But the savings may not be enough to make your medication affordable. That’s where The Rx Advocates come in.

These programs are designed to help people who are struggling to afford their medications due to financial hardship or lack of insurance coverage.

Combigan coupon, discounts, & patient assistance FAQ's
Combigan is an eye drop available by prescription used to treat increased eye pressure in glaucoma patients with open-angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension. These eye drops are a 0.2%/0.5% combination ophthalmic solution of brimonidine and timolol maleate. They lower elevated intraocular pressure (IOP) in patients who need glaucoma treatment that cannot be managed with only one medication.
There are some warnings patients should know about before they take Combigan. This should not be used by anyone with a history of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) or asthma unless directed by a healthcare professional. Anyone with slow heartbeats, a serious heart condition, or severe heart failure may also need to refrain from using this. Children under 2 years old should not use Combigan.
Combigan eye drops are effective in treating increased eye pressure. The FDA has not approved a generic form of this medicine. Pregnant and nursing mothers should talk to their doctor before using this medicine.
There are 8 alternative medications to Combigan approved to treat high eye pressure in the glaucoma patients. Those are:
While we do not offer our patients Combigan coupons, we think it is helpful to explain how a coupon works. Because this medicine can be very expensive to pay for out-of-pocket, many people seek out Combigan coupons online with the hopes of finding a discount. Oftentimes, these coupons do not offer enough of a discount to make a big difference.
A Combigan coupon can often leave a patient with a lot to pay, even after it is applied, no matter what amount of money it saves them. For example, a coupon for Combigan from CVS Pharmacy would save the patient some money but still leave them paying around $200 a month.
Prescription drug coupons can go by different names. They can sometimes be referred to as:
- Pharmacy coupons
- Copay Coupons
- Copay assistance coupons
- Copay cards
Pharmaceutical companies are often the ones who financially support these types of programs. They want to lessen the amount a patient has to pay out-of-pocket. While this sounds like a good thing, these coupons or programs usually have restrictions. Some of those could be:
- Most coupons are only valid for a specific timeframe. The patient can get a lower cost for a time, but when the coupon expires, those savings will end.
- Many times, coupons are good for the first time a prescription is filled and not for subsequent refills.
- Many pharmacies require the coupons to be presented in person. Likewise, the patient is usually required to pick the medicine up in person.
Patients can get their medications at a lower cost with a prescription discount card. These are especially helpful to patients who pay the cash price for their medicine. These can be used by anyone, whether they have insurance or not. There is no cost for these cards.
Many savings programs can negotiate discounts for patients on medicines like Combigan. Many patients use prescription discount cards to get lower prices on their monthly medicines.
Patients with health insurance have copays associated with buying their medications. Copay assistance programs, or copay coupons, help patients offset their prescription copay. These programs are not for patients who pay the cash price for their medications.
The manufacturers of brand-name medications often want to encourage providers and patients to choose their product over a generic alternative so they will offer these programs.
This is an example of how it works:
A patient is prescribed a medicine whose brand name costs $800. The generic of that medicine costs $120. With the insurance coverage, the patient has a copay of $20, no matter which medicine they get. When they use a copay assistance program, the pharmaceutical company will make brand-name medicine more attractive to the patient. They do this by paying their copay, leaving the $780 left for the insurance to pay.
