What Is Estring?
Estring is a low-dose estradiol-releasing vaginal ring prescribed for women with atrophic vaginitis, better known as vaginal atrophy. The ring is inserted by the patient and remains in place, slowly releasing estradiol for three months, after which it is removed and replaced.
What Does Simplefill Provide?
Simplefill understands the financial pressures people experience when they need to take costly medications for an extended period of time, perhaps indefinitely, especially when they are uninsured or underinsured, with no prescription coverage. The irony is that help is available, though many are unaware of the existence of prescription assistance programs that can make life much easier for them.
Simplefill is in the business of raising awareness of prescription assistance programs and serving as a bridge between them and the people most in need of help.
How Does Estring Work?
The estradiol released by an Estring vaginal ring replaces the estrogen that a woman’s body produces much less of after menopause. Increasing the estrogen level in this manner relieves the vaginal dryness, itching, and burning that many women experience after menopause. Estradiol is a natural estrogen that works in the same manner as the hormones a menopausal woman’s body no longer produces in sufficient quantity. It takes two to three weeks to achieve symptomatic relief.
How to Get Estring Prescription Assistance
The only prerequisite for Simplefill to help you get the prescription assistance you need is for you to become a Simplefill member. You can do that easily by applying online or calling 1(877)386-0206. There’s one more step for you—being interviewed over the phone by one of our patient advocates—after which the ball will be in our court.
During the intake interview, the advocate will ask questions about your prescriptions, your financial situation, and your insurance coverage, if any. We’ll use your responses to those questions to build your member profile, which will enable us to identify the prescription assistance programs you should qualify for—programs that can help with the cost of your Estring prescription.
You won’t have to fill out a single application. We’ll complete your applications for you and submit them on behalf to the programs we’ve identified for you. And once you’ve been approve, we’ll also take care of getting you enrolled, and you’ll soon be paying much less, perhaps even nothing, for your Estring.
We’re here to help you for as long as you remain a Simplefill member. We’ll keep an eye on your situation and make sure you continue to pay as little as possible for your Estring prescription. We’ll update your profile as needed when there are changes in your circumstances. And if and when your health care providers prescribe new medications for you, we’ll find you some prescription assistance for those, too.
Let us find you the prescription assistance you need. Apply with Simplefill today.
