When a patient has to pay for medication without having insurance, their monthly cost for that medicine can be very high, especially without coupons or discounts. Many people need Prolensa but can not afford to buy it because of its cost. At The Rx Advocates, we think people should be able to get the medicine they need and we want to help. 

We believe people should not have to choose between getting their medication and other monthly needs. Our primary goal at The Rx Advocates is to help people see that there is help available for them. We want patients to know about our patient assistance programs and how these programs can save on the cost of their monthly medications.

Who are The Rx Advocates?

The Rx Advocates is a nationally recognized patient advocacy group. We help people save on their medication costs through patient assistance programs. We currently work with more than 100 pharmaceutical manufacturers’ patient assistance programs, all based in the United States. We have helped patients save money on more than 800 medicines approved by the FDA through the help of these programs. 

When working with The Rx Advocates, patients can be confident that no additional fees or hidden costs will come up. We do charge a monthly service fee that ranges in price, from $60-$90. This price depends on how many medications a patient needs our help with. After the service fee is paid, medications are free with no addition to all charges. 

What we do NOT do is provide insurance, medicine coupons or a prescription discount card. At The Rx Advocates, our goal is to help patients get the medicine they need at a lower cost. Patients will find that their monthly medication budget is more affordable when they work with us. 

Do I Qualify for Prolensa Patient

  • An annual income below $60,000 for a couple. 
  • An annual income below $100,00 for a large family.

Conditions can be different depending on the program. We ask patients to get in contact with us to give us an opportunity to evaluate their qualifications. 

Prolensa Prescription Discounts:
Frequently Asked Questions

Prolensa (bromfenac ophthalmic solution) 0.07% is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory (NSAID) eye drop. It is used after cataract surgery to reduce eye pain and inflammation in the eyes. 

The following patients should contact discuss using Prolensa with their doctor before starting it:

  • Anyone with an allergy to sulfite, aspirin or NSAIDs
  • Anyone with rheumatoid arthritis or diabetes
  • Anyone with a blood-clotting or bleeding disorder
  • Anyone with dry eye syndrome 
  • Anyone who has had multiple eye surgeries in a short time period
  • Anyone who is pregnant or nursing

Prolensa should not be used when a patient is wearing contact lenses. 

Prolensa is an eye drop that eye doctors have found to be effective for patients after surgery. There is no FDA-approved generic version of this eye drop.

There are a handful of alternatives to Prolensa approved by the FDA for patients after having cataract surgery. Those are: 

There are different factors to determine the price of Prolensa. Those can include: 

  • Medication dosage
  • Pharmacy location
  • Patient location
  • If the patient is paying cash price or has insurance

As of March 2021, patients who are paying the cash price for Prolensa should expect to pay around $300-$350 for a month’s supply. This is for a 3-milliliter bottle.

Even though we do not offer our patients coupons for Prolensa we thought we should explain how those coupons work. A lot of people will look for Prolensa coupons on the internet because it is expensive to pay for it out-of-pocket. They will find several offers, but they do not offer a very significant discount. 

Most of the time, Prolensa coupons leave the patient still paying the bulk of the bill even after the discount is applied. For example, a Costco Pharmacy coupon for Prolensa can save the patient a little bit of money but they would still have to pay about $310 each month.

There can be different names when referring to prescription drug coupons. Those can be:

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

The financial support for these programs often comes from pharmaceutical companies. Their objective is to lower the out-of-pocket cost for the consumer. This sounds like a great plan except these programs or coupons can have some restrictions. Those can include: 

  • Coupons might only be good for the first time the medicine is filled and not for refills. 
  • Pharmacies often require the patient to present the Coupon in person and to pick up their medicine in person. 
  • Coupons usually have an expiration date. They may get a discount when they first start the medicine but that discount might not last.

Prescription discount cards help patients get their medications at a lower cost. While these can be used for anyone, insured or uninsured, they are very helpful to those who pay out-of-pocket. These cards are free of charge. 

Savings programs are often able to get discounts on medicines like Prolensa for patients. Patients use these monthly to lower the cost of their medicine.

Health insurance comes with copays when getting medicine. For patients who have insurance, copay assistance programs, also called copay coupons, can help patients with the cost of their copay. These are not for individuals who are uninsured. 

To encourage patients and providers to choose their medicine over a generic version, brand-name medications will suggest this program. Here is an example of how they make money on these: 

A patient is prescribed medicine that costs $620 for the brand name and $50 for the generic. Their insurance copay is $15, no matter which one they choose. If they use a copay assistance program, the pharmaceutical company will pay the copay, making this look like the better option and leading the patient to choose that medicine. This leaves the insurance company a $605 bill to pay for the remainder of the cost.
