Prescription medications are very expensive to have to pay for out of pocket without coupons or the help of discount cards. Tresiba is a prescription medicine that some people need to take. However, some cannot afford to obtain this medication on a month-to-month basis. At The Rx Advocates, our goal is to help people with or without health insurance obtain their monthly prescription medications at an affordable price.

Nobody should have to go without the medicine they need because they cannot afford it. People deserve to live a quality life; they deserve to receive the treatment they need in order to live happy and productive lives. With help from The Rx Advocates, people can save hundreds and even thousands of dollars on their treatment.

Who are The Rx Advocates?

The Rx Advocates is a well-known advocacy program that helps people to obtain their prescription medications at an affordable price each month through patient assistance programs. We work with more than 100 United States-based pharmaceutical manufacturers’ patient assistance programs. The medications that we help people obtain include the top 100 prescribed medicines in the United States. We are able to help people receive more than 800 prescribed medications that are FDA approved. 

When patients qualify for our assistance, they never experience any hidden costs or additional fees. Patients pay a set fee that is dependent on the number of medications they are prescribed by their health care provider. They never come up against any extra charges for our services. For example, if a patient is prescribed one medication, they will pay $60 each month for our services and that one medication. The cost for two medications is $70 each month. The cost for three medications is $80 each month and the cost for four medications and more is $90 each month. There are never any additional costs that our patients will pay. These are the set prices for our services. 

The Rx Advocates is not an insurance plan, coupon, or discount card. We provide assistance to patients with receiving the monthly prescriptions they need so they can stay healthy both mentally and physically.

Tresiba Prescription Discounts:
Frequently Asked Questions

Tresiba (insulin degludec injection) is available as a vial or an insulin pen.

The 100 unit/mL Tresiba pen contains 300 total units. It can deliver a maximum dose of 80 units per injection. Patients who need higher doses should be prescribed Tresiba 200 units/mL, which can deliver up to 160 units in a single injection.

Tresiba 100 units/mL is also available as a 10 mL vial.

Tresiba can treat people with both type 1 and type 2 diabetes. It is an ultra long acting insulin that lasts for up to 40 hours. However, Tresiba should be taken once every 24 hours or as directed by your physician.

Tresiba and other insulin products regulate glucose metabolism by stimulating peripheral glucose uptake and by inhibiting hepatic glucose production.

People who are allergic to insulin degludec should not take Tresiba. People having an episode of hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) or diabetic ketoacidosis (a medical emergency) should not take this medication. Notify your doctor if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.

The following medications are alternatives to Tresiba. These are all long-acting insulins:

As of August 2021, the average retail cost of Tresiba is $608.78.

The price people can expect to pay for Tresiba is dependent on the following:

  • The dosage amount that the patient is prescribed by the health care provider.
  • The location of the patient.
  • The location of the pharmacy.
  • Whether the patient has health insurance or not.

We do not offer coupons, however, we feel it is important to explain how coupons work. When people are prescribed this medication, many will get online and search the Internet for a coupon to help save them money on this expensive prescription.  Coupons do not always offer the savings that will make a difference.

Tresiba coupons may help save people some money but they still leave people paying hundreds of dollars or more out of pocket each month.

Prescription Drug coupons are also called the following: copay cards, copay coupons, copay assistance programs, and pharmacy coupons. Prescription drug coupons represent a program that has been funded by the pharmaceutical company that helps to lower the out-of-pocket expenses for patients. This may sound good, however, there are limitations to these prescription drug coupons such as:

  • Coupons are usually for only a limited amount of time. They may help patients obtain their prescription at a significantly lower price to start with but these savings may not last long term. Some coupons are only for the first month’s supply and they do not cover the subsequent months that are needed for patients.
  • Coupons cannot be used in conjunction with Medicare and Medicaid programs.
