Is paying for Eliquis every month just too expensive? If so, you’re not alone! Many people who depend on the prescription medication simply cannot afford it. However, there’s some good news. There are several cost-reducing options like an Eliquis coupon, a savings card, and the Eliquis patient assistance program that offer significant discounts on the retail price. Here at the Rx Advocates, we believe that a lack of funds should never be the reason why someone cannot access the medications they truly need. We help people to save money on their medications through programs called patient assistance programs.

Accessing the Eliquis Patient Assistance Program

The Rx Advocates offers help with obtaining medications at affordable prices through patient assistance programs. We are recognized as a national prescription advocacy program. Currently, we work with more than 100 United States-based pharmaceutical manufacturers’ patient assistance programs. Our medication lists include the top 100 medications prescribed by doctors in the United States for the most common illnesses. We are happy to be able to assist people in obtaining at affordable prices more than 800 FDA-approved medications.

Patients working with The Rx Advocates never encounter or are surprised by hidden costs or unexpected additional fees. Patients pay a set service fee between $80-$110 per month, depending on the number of prescription medications needed. Upon approval for the program, patients’ medications will be provided to them at no additional cost. If you’re approved for the Eliquis patient assistance program, you’ll pay a fixed monthly fee of $80 to receive your 30-day prescription.

It is important to know that The Rx Advocates is not a coupon, insurance plan, or prescription discount card. We assist patients with getting medications they need in order to be healthy and live a fulfilling life. We help patients pay affordable prices for their medications.

The limitations of an Eliquis Coupon

Eliquis coupons can be a very beneficial way to save money on the cost of the medication, but there are also limitations to keep in mind. One limitation is that coupons may not be accepted at all pharmacies or may only be valid at specific locations. Additionally, the savings offered by an Eliquis coupon may not be substantial enough to impact the overall cost of the medication significantly.

It’s very important to note that some insurance plans may also not cover the medication cost if an Eliquis coupon is used, as they may consider the coupon a form of manufacturer assistance. Additionally, if you are paying cash for your medication, sometimes the coupon does not offer any savings as the retail price is already cheaper than the coupon.

On the other hand, patient assistance programs offer more flexibility and comprehensive coverage than coupons. The RX Advocates can guide you through the complex process of applying for the Eliquis patient assistance program. Our service ensures that all the necessary information and requirements are met, increasing your chances of approval. This can save you a significant amount of time and energy trying to figure out the process on your own.

Furthermore, patient assistance programs may also provide additional benefits, such as free home/pharmacy delivery of your medications. Overall, being approved for a patient assistance program can provide you with more comprehensive and long-term support in obtaining the medications you need.

Eliquis Coupon & Prescription Discounts FAQ's

Eliquis (Apixaban) is used to treat people with atrial fibrillation who do not have a heart valve replacement. Eliquis is also used for the secondary prevention of clots in people who have previously had a blood clot.

Eliquis reduces the risk of blood clots, including deep vein thrombosis (DVT), pulmonary embolism (PE), and stroke (cerebral vascular accident, CVA).

Atrial Fibrillation is an irregular heartbeat of the left atrial chamber of the heart where it beats too fast. People with atrial fibrillation have a five times greater risk of having a stroke than people without atrial fibrillation. Common symptoms are:

  • Chest pain
  • Heart palpitations
  • Irregular heartbeat
  • Fatigue
  • Lightheadedness
  • Shortness of breath

Atrial fibrillation is not to be taken lightly. If people notice they have these symptoms, they should see their doctor immediately. Not seeking treatment can lead to blood clots, permanent damage, and even death.

Patients that are prescribed Eliquis may need to stop taking this drug if they are scheduled for surgery. Eliquis is an anticoagulant, meaning it slows down the amount of time it takes a clot to form in the blood. Therefore, ask your prescribing doctor if and for how long you need to stop Eliquis before and after surgery.

In multiple clinical trials, Eliquis (Apixaban) has been proven effective in treating people with a high risk of a clot.

There are several anticoagulants available for people with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation or other clotting disorders, including:

We can do much better than a coupon. We do not offer coupons. We can help people save much more than that. With our services, people will never pay more than $80-$110 per month. We do all the hard work to help people get started with our program. It is important for people to know that coupons do save but they still leave you with spending too much money on prescription medication.

There are many different names for prescription drug coupons such as:

  • Copay assistance programs
  • Copay cards
  • Copay coupons
  • Pharmacy coupons

Pharmaceutical companies fund programs to help lower the costs of prescription medication for patients. While this does lower the costs some, these coupons certainly have their limitations such as:

  • They are only for a limited time, while patients are on their medication for a long period of time.
  • Some coupons are only for the initial prescription and only cover the first month and not subsequent months. 
  • Patients will have to leave their homes when they are not well and present their coupons to the pharmacy themselves.
  • Patients on Medicare and Medicaid cannot use these coupons

Prescription discount cards are cards that people can use to help them pay less for their medications. These cards are most useful for people who pay cash for their medications. These cards do not cost anything. They are available for people who have health insurance and for people who do not.

There are many savings programs that negotiate to help lower costs of medications such as Eliquis. People are able to use these prescription discount cards to lower the cost of their prescription medication. Many people benefit from prescription discount cards.

Copay assistance programs are there to help people with health insurance. They help offset the cost of the copay for prescription medications. These programs are not for people who do not have health insurance and have to pay out of pocket for their medication.

These programs are for brand name medications. These programs encourage patients and doctors to choose the brand name over the generic versions. An example of how this works is: A patient may have a choice between a brand name costing $1,000 and a generic costing $100. Under their insurance plan, their copay may be $20 for either one. However, with a copay assistance program, the pharmaceutical companies make much more money on brand name medications. They have made it more appealing to the patient by covering the patient’s prescription copay of $20. The patient’s insurance company is responsible for the remaining $980.
