Lumigan coupon, discounts, & patient assistance FAQ's
Lumigan (bimatoprost) is a prescription eye drop used to treat certain types of glaucoma, specifically open-angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension. It lowers high pressure in the eye by increasing fluid drainage.
It can also be used to increase the length and thickness of eyelashes. When treatment for this is stopped, the eyelashes return to normal length after a few months.
There are some precautions to consider before taking Lumigan. Lumigan should not be used while the patient has contact lenses in. They should wait a minimum of 15 minutes after usage to put contacts back in their eyes.
Another precaution is that Lumigan could gradually change the color of the eyes, eyelids or lashes from light to dark. This process is slow and gradual and may not be noticed for months or years. The color change is permanent.
Lumigan is an effective glaucoma eye drop medication. There are currently no approved generic forms of Lumigan. This has not been approved for patients under the age of 16.
There are currently 8 other medications approved to treat high pressure in the eyes. Those are:
- Xalatan (latanoprost)
- Zioptan (tafluprost)
- Travatan (travoprost)
- Alphagan P (brimonidine)
- Timoptic (timolol)
- Betoptic S (betaxolol)
- Isopto Carpine (pilocarpine)
- Combigan (brimonidine/timolol)
We do not offer coupons for Lumigan but think it would be helpful to explain how one works. Many times, a patient will search for a Lumigan coupon on the internet, hoping to receive a discount because this medicine is expensive for those who have to pay out-of-pocket. However, coupons often do not make much of a difference.
Typically, a coupon for Lumigan will still leave a patient with a high amount to pay, regardless of saving them some money.
There are different names for prescription drug coupons. These can be:
- Copay assistance coupons
- Copay cards
- Pharmacy coupons
- Copay cards
Most of the programs represented by these coupons are financially backed by pharmaceutical companies. Their goal is to lower out-of-pocket costs for patients. This might sound like a good idea but there are often boundaries on these coupons. These could include:
- Typically, coupons have to be presented to the pharmacy in person. Patients must pick the medicine up in person, as well.
- Sometimes, these coupons are only valid for the first time the prescription gets filled and not for refills.
- Coupons usually have an expiration date. This can help a patient begin a medicine at a lower cost but the savings could end if the coupon ends.
A prescription discount card is a way for patients to receive their drugs at a lower cost. People who pay cash for their medications find these most useful. They are available to anyone, regardless of having health insurance and they do not cost anything.
Different savings programs negotiate their discounts on drugs like Lumigan. Patients can receive lower prices through their prescription discount cards.
Copay assistance programs, also called copay coupons, help counterbalance the cost of a prescription copay for patients with health insurance. These are not for people who pay out-of-pocket for their medicine.
This service is often offered by brand-name medications to encourage patients and providers to choose them over a generic alternative. The following is an example of how this works:
A patient might be prescribed a brand-name medicine that costs $700 with a generic version that costs $50. With their insurance plan, they have a copay of $20 for either medicine. With a copay assistance program, the pharmaceutical company would make more money on the brand-name drug. They will make that one look more appealing to the patient by covering their copay. The insurance company is left paying the $680 left on that medicine.
