Access the Dificid patient assistance program with The Rx Advocates

The Rx Advocates is an experienced prescription advocacy service, collaborating with over 100 U.S. pharmaceutical companies to provide more affordable access to over 800 FDA-approved prescription medications, including Dificid. The Rx Advocates is not a Dificid coupon, savings card, or insurance plan. Rather, we offer our expertise to help you access Dificid patient assistance programs and fill your prescription at significantly reduced costs.

If you’re approved for Dificid patient assistance, you will only pay The Rx Advocates a fixed fee of $70/month. If you apply for and are approved for more than one medication, the monthly fee can vary. However, the most you’ll ever pay is $100/month. Here’s how it works:

  • 1 Medication (Dificid Only) – Fixed cost of $70 per month
  • 2 Medications (Dificid + 1 other) – Fixed cost of $80 per month
  • 3 Medications (Dificid + 2 others) – Fixed cost of $90 per month
  • 4+ Medications – Fixed cost of $100 per month

We aim to make your medication costs predictable and manageable, which is why these fixed prices won’t change, even if the retail price of your medication increases.

Dificid coupon restrictions

While a Dificid coupon seems like an easy solution to high prescription costs, there are several limitations to consider:

  1. Usage Limitations: Often, coupons come with specific usage conditions; they might only be redeemable at certain pharmacies, or for a limited time.
  2. Copay Accumulators: Some insurance plans use copay accumulator programs, meaning that your Dificid coupon may not apply towards your deductible. As a result, you may still pay the full cost of your medication.
  3. Expiry Dates: Most coupons come with an expiration date, limiting the time in which you can receive a discount on your prescription.
  4. Partial Coverage: Even with a coupon, the price of Dificid may still be high. In many cases, insurance may not fully cover your medication, leaving you to pay a significant portion of the cost out-of-pocket.

How much does Dificid cost?

As of January 2024, the average retail Dificid cost is $7,334.00.

The price of Dificid can vary based on several factors, including the dosage prescribed by your healthcare provider, your location, the location of the pharmacy you visit, and whether or not you have health insurance coverage.

What is Dificid used for?

Dificid (generic name: fidaxomicin) is an antibiotic used to treat Clostridium difficile-associated diarrhea (CDAD) in adults. CDAD is caused by excessive growth of Clostridium difficile bacteria after the use of broad-spectrum antibiotics. Dificid targets and inhibits the growth of Clostridium difficile to resolve infection.

Why is Dificid so expensive?

The high cost of Dificid can be attributed to several factors. These include expensive research and development, clinical trials, regulatory approvals, intricate manufacturing processes, and quality control measures. Limited competition and a small patient population also contribute to the high cost.
