How can I save money on Epogen?

 

Question:
How can I save money on Epogen?

Answer:

Epogen (Epoetin alfa) is an injection used to treat low red blood cell count in people who have chronic kidney failure or those going through chemotherapy. Epogen works by helping the tissue inside the bones to produce more red blood cells.

 

The current price of one vial of Epogen 2000 units/ml in the United States is $41.99 without insurance.

 

None of the international online pharmacies verified by PharmacyChecker.com currently offer Epogen.

 

Epogen Patient Assistance

 

If you are eligible, a patient assistance program can help you afford Epogen. Review the information to see if you qualify. The applications are available in Adobe PDF format and should be mailed directly to the provider of the patient assistance program.

 

Epogen Patient Assistance Program

 

The following is a quick outline of the requirements to see if you qualify for the Amgen SafetyNet Foundation patient assistance program:

 

•    You have lived in the U.S. or its territories for six months or longer

•    You satisfy income eligibility requirements

•    You are uninsured, or your insurance plan excludes the Amgen medicine

•    Certain Medicare Part D patients with product coverage who cannot afford their out-of-pocket costs may be eligible. It is required that you can demonstrate:

 

      o    Your inability to afford the medicine

      o    Your ineligibility for Medicaid or Medicare's low-income subsidy (Extra Help)

      o    You have satisfied all payer guidelines and Prior Authorization (PA) requirements prior to applying for assistance

      o    You do not have any other financial support options
