What are the main disadvantages of using a Zirgan Coupon?

While a Zirgan coupon can offer quick savings on your prescription, it isn’t the best solution for managing long-term medication expenses:

  1. Restrictions: Zirgan coupons might have criteria that limit who can use them or where they can be redeemed. It’s important to review your coupon’s conditions to ensure you qualify to use it.
  2. Copay Accumulators: Some insurance plans employ copay accumulator programs, which means that the value of the Zirgan coupon might not count toward your out-of-pocket maximum. This could leave you responsible for the full cost of the medication, even after using a coupon.
  3. Expiration Dates: Like most coupons, Zirgan coupons are valid for a limited period. Patients must keep track of coupon expiration dates to ensure that coupons are used before they expire.
  4. Limited Coverage: Even with a coupon, your Zirgan prescription may still be expensive, especially if it is not fully covered by your insurance. In this case, you could be left with substantial out-of-pocket fees.

How much does Zirgan cost?

As of June 2023, the average retail Zirgan cost is $477.29.

The price of Zirgan can vary depending on several key factors. These include the dosage prescribed by your healthcare provider, your location, the location of your pharmacy, and whether or not you have health insurance coverage.

Am I eligible for Zirgan patient assistance programs?

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 Zirgan used for?

If you’re suffering from acute herpetic keratitis, a viral infection of the cornea caused by the herpes simplex virus (HSV), your doctor might prescribe Zirgan. Zirgan (generic name: ganciclovir ophthalmic gel) is a topical antiviral medication that reduces viral replication in the eye and promotes healing of the cornea. The treatment duration will vary depending on the severity of the infection and how you respond to the medication.

Why is Zirgan so expensive?

The retail price of Zirgan accounts for several expenses in its creation and distribution. These costs include complex manufacturing processes, specialized research and testing to ensure that it’s eye-safe, limited competition from other medications, and maintenance of sterility.
