Simplefill is committed to helping Americans who are struggling to pay for the prescription medications they need to manage chronic medical conditions, such as pulmonary hypertension. Continue reading to learn about our Letairis patient assistance program, and apply today.
What Is Letairis?
Letairis (ambrisentan) is prescribed for people with pulmonary arterial hypertension, a condition in which the arteries in the lungs and the right side of the heart become constricted, blocked, or damaged, raising the blood pressure within them. Letairis can slow the progression of the disease and make it easier for patients to exercise.
Letairis is taken by mouth, with or without food, once daily.
What Does Simplefill Provide?
Pulmonary hypertension is a serious disease that can have a significant negative impact on one’s quality of life. As recently as 25 years ago, the median life expectancy after diagnosis was only 2.5 years. Drugs like Letairis have improved the prognosis to the point that some patients live another 20 years after diagnosis. But for some uninsured and underinsured people, the cost of those medications can be out of reach.
Simplefill believes that nobody should be priced out of a chance to live longer and healthier. That’s why we are committed to serving as a bridge between people who can’t afford the medications they need to take indefinitely and the programs that offer prescription assistance.
How Does Letairis Work?
Endothelin is a peptide manufactured in the endothelium, a thin membrane lining the interior of the heart and blood vessels. Endothelin increases blood pressure by constricting blood vessels.
Letairis is classified as an endothelin receptor antagonist (ETRA). It works by preventing endothelin from constricting the blood vessels, which enhances blood flow.
How to Get Letairis Prescription Assistance
The process for getting prescription assistance through Simplefill is as easy as we could make it. There are only two simple tasks for you to accomplish. First, become a Simplefill member by applying online or calling 1(877)386-0206. Second, answer the questions posed by one of our patient advocates during a brief telephone interview.
You can leave everything else to us.

That’s not the end of what we do for our members, though. We will monitor your situation on an ongoing basis to make sure you continue to receive Letairis prescription assistance. And we’ll update your profile as we become aware of changes in your life—specifically in your medical situation, financial circumstance, and insurance status. If new prescriptions have been written for you, we’ll go ahead and find you any additional prescription assistance you might need.
