When it comes to high blood pressure, many patients take their Diovan (valsartin) pills every morning, just like the doctor ordered.
It’s not the cheapest Rx on the market, but thanks to the fact its patent expires in 2012, that could soon change. Generics will introduce a whole new pricing ballgame.
Which is why pharmaceutical manufacturer Novartis is taking proactive steps to ensure its customer base with an innovative $4 co-pay program for patients who are currently taking this medication. Simply go here, sign up and receive your $4 co-pay card to print out on the home computer. Take the coupon to your pharmacist, who will enter the assigned PIN number to your account.
Voila! Your insurance program pays its portion, you pay $4, and Novartis eats the rest of the cost. The $4 price blows away online pharmacy rates; chain drugstores charge in the ballpark of $111 for a month’s supply.
That leaves a lot of money in your health savings account.
Once enrolled, the discount is good on refills through December 31, 2013. Check the website for fine print terms and conditions.
