PLEASE NOTE: THIS PROGRAM HAS EXPIRED.
There is another patient-assistance program through the Lily Cares Foundation. It requires that you meet certain standards of financial need.
You can learn more at this link to Lily Cares.
If you or a loved one takes Strattera for ADHD, you might want to check out this new promotion from the manufacturer, Lily. (Please note: I have no business ties to “Big Pharma” but I do have emotional ties to consumers trying to manage the sometimes-high costs of having ADHD.)
This post has been updated: the initial program, which expired 12/15, has been extended to 5/26/17.
Basics of the Strattera Discount Card:
1. Sign up for the free card here: https://voucher.strattera.com/savings_card/adult.cfm
It requires no name or address. Rather, you are assigned a unique number.
Type in your age and click “download savings card.” (it’s not a small card but a letter-size PDF you can print or maybe download to your digital device).
Note: Some physicians have the card available at their offices. You can also call Lily to have one sent to you by mail. See toll-free number below.
2. Follow instructions to activate your card.
3. Show your card to the local pharmacist.
The card has full instructions for the pharmacist.
If you use a mail-order pharmacy, follow the instructions on the card. (Simply mail to the designated address a copy of your activated Savings Card; include your receipt showing the name of the drug, date filled, and amount paid—and of course your name and mailing address.)
More Details: Strattera Discount Program
1. You must have commercial insurance coverage, and you must be a resident of the US and PR.
“This offer is invalid for patients without commercial insurance coverage or those whose prescription claims for STRATTERA are reimbursed, in whole or in part, by any governmental program, including, without limitation, Medicaid, Medicare, Medicare Part D, Medigap, Champus, DOD, the VA, TriCare, or any State Patient or Pharmaceutical Assistance Program.”
More fine print:
“By accepting this offer, you agree that if you are required to do so under the terms of your insurance coverage for this prescription or are otherwise required to do so by law, you should notify your insurance carrier of your redemption of this STRATTERA Savings Card. This offer is not valid with any other program, discount, or incentive involving STRATTERA. It is Illegal for any person to sell, purchase, or trade; or to offer to sell, purchase, or trade; or to counterfeit this card. This offer may be terminated, rescinded, revoked, or amended by Lilly USA, LLC at any time without notice. STRATTERA® and the STRATTERA logo are registered trademarks of Eli Lilly and Company. This card has no cash value.”
Missing fine print:
I have no idea what this involves, if anything, in terms of medical privacy.
2. The card itself has a $25 co-pay and will pay up to $75 toward the cost of the prescription.
There is no cost involved with the card. The co-pay is simply deducted from the amount you might receive.
- If you have a $50 insurance co-pay, the card will pay $25 (the other $25 is the card’s co-pay).
- If you have a $100 insurance co-pay, the card will pay $75 of the cost (the other $25 is the card’s co-pay).
- If you pay $60 for 3-month mail-order supply, the card will not help you. That’s because your cost for one month ($20) is lower than the card’s co-pay.
- If you pay $300 for a 3-month mail-order supply, the card will pay $75 for each month, a total of $225.
3. The card expires 5/26/17
The last offer (which expired 12/15) extended into this one, so who knows: maybe that expiration date will be extended at that time. Stay tuned!
4. The card is not retroactive.
Once the card is activated, it is good for only current and future purchases, not those in the past.
