Simplefill is committed to helping Americans who are struggling to pay for the prescription medications they need to manage chronic diseases, such as skin cancer. Continue reading to learn about our Carac patient assistance program, and apply today.
What Is Carac?
Carac (fluorouracil) is classified as a dermatologic drug and is prescribed for adults for the treatment of actinic (solar) keratosis and superficial basal cell carcinoma. These skin conditions are the result of excessive exposure to sunlight, including sunburns that occurred years earlier.
Carac comes in the form of a cream that is applied in a thin film to actinic keratosis skin lesions once daily ten minutes after the area has been washed, rinsed, and dried. If Carac is applied using the fingertips, it’s important to wash the hands thoroughly immediately afterward.
Carac can be used, as tolerated, for up to four weeks.
What Does Simplefill Provide?
High U.S. prescription costs can put Carac beyond the reach of many who are uninsured or underinsured. Left untreated, basal cell carcinoma can spread to lymph nodes, bones, bone marrow, or vital organs, such as the lungs. Knowing that, patients who can’t afford Carac will likely sacrifice other necessities to pay for it if they are unaware of the existence of prescription assistance programs that can help them.
Simplefill tries to prevent such situations by raising awareness of prescription assistance options and connecting people who need prescription assistance with the programs that offer it.
How Does Carac Work?
Carac is classified as an antimetabolite medication. It blocks the growth of fast-growing abnormal skin cells by interfering with the synthesis of DNA and the formation of RNA, which are essential for cell division and growth.
