Accessing Epiduo patient assistance programs with The Rx Advocates

The Rx Advocates is not a coupon, savings card, or insurance plan. We are a prescription advocacy program dedicated to helping you access patient assistance programs for over 800 FDA-approved medications from more than 100 pharmaceutical companies, including Epiduo. Many find the application process for these programs complex, time-consuming, and overwhelming. At The Rx Advocates, we specialize in guiding you through your application, making it easier for you to apply and receive the benefits you deserve.

If approved for the Epiduo patient assistance program, you will only pay The Rx Advocates a fixed fee of $70/month. This fee will vary based on the number of medications you need, but will never cost more than $100/month. Here’s a breakdown of how it works:

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

At The Rx Advocates, we strive to provide you with stability and inexpensive prices. Even if the retail price of Epiduo fluctuates, the fee from The Rx Advocates will remain the same.

The limitations of an Epiduo coupon

All patients should know about the limitations of using an Epiduo coupon:

  1. Restrictions: Some coupons might only be valid at certain pharmacies or for a limited time, reducing your options for filling your prescription.
  2. Copay Accumulators: Some insurance plans employ copay accumulator programs, which means that an Epiduo coupon might not contribute towards your out-of-pocket maximum. As a result, you could still have to pay the full cost of your medication.
  3. Expiration Dates: Coupons typically come with expiration dates, so patients must keep track of when their coupon expires to ensure they benefit from using it.
  4. Limited Coverage: Even with a coupon, your Epiduo purchase may still be pricey, and might not be fully covered by insurance.

How much does Epiduo cost?

As of June 2023, the average retail Epiduo cost is $509.00.

Epiduo prices can fluctuate based on different factors, like your required dosage, your location, the pharmacy you go to, and your health insurance coverage. Because of uncertain Epiduo costs, it’s important for patients to explore all avenues for saving on their medication.

Am I eligible for Epiduo Patient Assistance?

Although program guidelines may vary among different pharmaceutical companies, most programs generally adhere to the following set of requirements:
  • Annual income does not exceed $40,000 for individual households.
  • Annual income does not exceed $60,000 for couples.
  • Annual income does not exceed $100,000 for large family households.

What is Epiduo used for?

Epiduo is a topical medication that you can use to treat acne. It contains two active ingredients: adapalene (a retinoid) and benzoyl peroxide. Adapalene works by unclogging pores and reducing inflammation, while benzoyl peroxide kills the bacteria that cause acne. These ingredients work together to improve the look of acne-prone skin, reduce the number of pimples, and prevent new breakouts.

Why is Epiduo so expensive?

Multiple factors can make Epiduo costs hard to manage. Epiduo contains two active ingredients that are complex to produce and formulate, requiring advanced technology and quality control measures. Additionally, research, development, and clinical trial costs also play a role in Epiduo retail prices. With patent rights, the manufacturer also exclusively decides Epiduo costs, often making it more expensive. Lastly, the high demand for acne treatments and the lack of widespread competition further increases the price point of Epiduo.
