Is your Ozempic costing you too much? If so, you’re not alone. Thousands of people depend on the medication to help control their diabetes, but without a discount provided by either insurance coverage, an Ozempic coupon, a savings card, or a patient assistance program, few can afford to pay the full Ozempic cost every month. The Rx Advocates want to help as many people as possible get the medications they need at a reasonable price.

Deciding which medication to get or paying other expenses should never be a decision someone has to make. People can easily save money on the medications they need with The Rx Advocates through patient assistance programs.

How do we help to reduce the cost of Ozempic?

The Rx Advocates is a prescription advocacy program. We work directly with more than 100 pharmaceutical manufacturers. Many pharmaceutical companies have patient assistance programs to help people with the high cost of medications.  If someone qualifies, they can receive their medications at a significantly lower cost than the retail price. The Rx Advocates have access to over 800 FDA-approved medications. This includes the 100 most prescribed medications in the United States.

The Rx Advocates is not a coupon, insurance plan, or discount card. When patients work with this program, they receive experience and knowledge of navigating patient assistance programs without stress and confusion.  We help people afford the monthly medications they need.

Patients who get their medications with The Rx Advocates pay a fixed service fee of $70-$100 per month. The price depends on the number of different medications that are being received. The price from The Rx Advocates does not change even if the retail price of the medication changes. 

For example:

1 Medication (e.g. Ozempic Only) – Fixed cost $70 per month 
2 Medications (Ozempic + 1 other) – Fixed cost $80 per month
3 Medications (Ozempic + 2 others) – Fixed cost of $90 per month

How much does Ozempic Cost?

As of September 2022, the average retail cost of Ozempic is $1,029.22.

The cost of a month’s supply of Ozempic can vary based on a few factors such as:

  •         The patient’s location
  •         Their pharmacy’s location
  •         If they have insurance and if their insurance covers Ozempic
  •         The dosage amount

Ozempic is administered in doses of 0.25 – 1 mg once weekly. The lower strength pen can administer 0.25 mg or 0.5 mg per dose. The higher strength dose can administer 1 mg per dose.  

It’s always best to check with your insurance provider or contact the manufacturer for more information on Ozempic cost and financial assistance options. Alternatively, The Rx Advocates can do the heavy lifting by helping you to apply and get approved for the Ozempic patient assistance program. If you’re approved, you’ll pay a fixed fee of $70/month for your Ozempic. 

Are there any disadvantages to using an Ozempic Coupon?

There are a few potential disadvantages to using Ozempic coupons:

  1. Restrictions: Coupons may have restrictions on who can use them or where they can be used. For example, the coupon may only be valid at certain pharmacies or for a limited time.

  2. Copay accumulators: Some insurance plans use a copay accumulator program, which means that the Ozempic coupon may not count toward the patient’s out-of-pocket maximum. This means that the patient will still have to pay the full cost of the medication and the coupon will not lower the overall cost.

  3. Expiration Dates: Coupons usually have an expiration date so they will become useless after that.

  4. Limited Coverage: Even with a coupon, the medication may still be expensive and may not be covered by insurance, so patients may still have to pay a significant portion of the cost out of pocket

What is Ozempic and what does it treat?

Ozempic is a once-weekly injectable medication that lowers blood sugar in adults with type 2 diabetes and can also reduce the risk of heart attacks, stroke, or death in those with type 2 diabetes and heart disease. It should be used with diet and exercise. However, Ozempic is not for treating type 1 diabetes, and people with a personal or family history of thyroid cancer should inform their doctor before starting this medication. Ozempic should not be used by pregnant or breastfeeding women, those experiencing diabetic ketoacidosis, or anyone under 18. The most common side effects are nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea; pancreatitis is a rare but severe side effect. The risk for low blood sugar may increase when taking Ozempic with other diabetic medications, so close monitoring is necessary.

Ozempic Coupon & Patient Assistance Program FAQ's

There are some FDA approved other options to treat type 2 diabetes. They include:

The Rx Advocates do not offer coupons, but we would like to explain some coupon details. When a patient is prescribed Ozempic they may do an internet search for coupons. An Ozempic prescription can be expensive, especially if they do not have good prescription drug insurance or no coverage at all. Coupons can help sometimes, but it is possible that a patient could still be paying hundreds of dollars out of pocket.

There are several different names for prescription medication coupons.

  •         Copay assistance programs
  •         Savings cards
  •         Copay cards
  •         Pharmacy coupons
  •         Trial offer card

These program types are offered by the medication manufacturer. Ozempic is manufactured by the Novo Nordisk company. Novo Nordisk offers a savings card for this medication. The savings card is good for those who have insurance through a commercial company and there is a limit to the offer. The offer is valid for up to 24 months and there are eligibility restrictions. This savings card can not be used with government insurance like Medicare. It also can not be used for patients who do not have insurance and would be paying out of pocket. Patients will need to take the savings card to the pharmacy when getting the prescription filled.

A copay assistance program works to lower costs for people who have insurance. A pharmaceutical company collects payment from two groups, a patient, and their insurance company. Generic versions of a medication can be significantly less expensive than a name brand medication. So, when there is an option between a brand name or a generic drug it benefits the pharmaceutical company to offer a coupon, that way they do not lose a sale.

For example, a brand name prescription costs $950 and a generic prescription costs $100. If the patient has a $20 copay, they will likely choose the brand name since the cost will be the same, $20 for the generic version or $20 for the brand name version.  The brand name pharmaceutical manufacturer will still get the opportunity to collect $930 from the insurance company. These programs only help the patient who has insurance.

The Rx Advocates is not a prescription discount card. A prescription discount card is offered by a third party, not the pharmaceutical manufacturer or an insurance company. When using a discount card, you show the card at the pharmacy when picking up the prescription to get a lower cash price. You cannot combine this with insurance. A patient would choose between using the discount card or using their insurance. It is possible for the cost to be lower than a copay when using the discount card. Discount cards can be helpful for those who do not have insurance. The cards do not have expiration dates or refill limits, and it is free to have one.
