I received a flyer in the mail yesterday from the makers of Asacol and it states the following:
"Asacol is celebrating over 15 years of helping patients manage their ulcerative colitis. To mark this anniversary, we've created the Pharmacy15 program. You can save up to $15/month off the out-of-pocket costs of your Asacol prescription. Just go to www.Asacol.com/benefit15 or call 1-800-663-6698 and speak with a program representative to order your free card today..........limit one use each 30 day period" Then it goes on to describe what Asacol is. It looks like they send you a card that you probably present to the pharmacist when ordering your Rx. Seems simple enough for free!
I thought this might help some of the patients that are taking Asacol. I passed it on to one of my friends that takes 12 Asacol a day and her monthly co-pay is going up to $40.00 on March 1.
