Simplefill is committed to helping Americans who are struggling to pay for the prescription medications they need to manage chronic medical conditions such as heart failure. Continue reading to learn about our Verquvo patient assistance program, and apply today.
What Is Verquvo?
Verquvo (vericiguat) is prescribed for adults with chronic heart failure who have been hospitalized recently or need intravenous medications and have an ejection fraction (amount of blood pumped with each heartbeat) of less than 45%. For these patients, Verquvo can bring symptomatic relief and lower the risk of death and the need for hospitalization.
Verquvo comes in tablet form, in 2mg, 5 mg, and 10 mg. strengths. It is taken once a day by mouth, with food.
What Does Simplefill Provide?
People who have been hospitalized for heart failure have a greater than 50% chance of ending up in the hospital again within 30 days. Living with a progressive, life-threatening illness causes immense stress, not only for patients but for their loved ones as well. That stress is magnified for people who find the high cost of Verquvo out of reach. (The average counter price for Verquvo is more than $800 for a 30-tablet supply.) Having prescription coverage is helpful, but even those with insurance that covers Verquvo may have trouble affording the high out-of-pocket costs.
While a Verquvo patient assistance program is a great solution for those who qualify, not all patients prescribed Verquvo know that such assistance is available. Simplefill not only raises awareness about patient assistance programs for expensive prescription medications such as Verquvo. We also strive to connect those who need patient assistance with an appropriate patient assistance program.
How Does Verquvo Work?
Verquvo helps relax the smooth tissue of the blood vessels in the heart and widen them. This makes it easier for a failing heart to pump more blood and oxygen throughout the body.
