What Is Tresiba?
Tresiba (insulin degludec) is a basal insulin analogue used to control blood sugar levels in diabetics. It is different from some forms of insulin in that it is ultralong-acting. Tresiba is injected once daily, in the morning, and continues to work through the day and overnight.
The average retail price of Tresiba is approximately $623 per month.
Who Is Eligible for a Tresiba Savings Card?
The eligibility criteria for receiving a Tresiba savings card, also known as a Tresiba copay card or Tresiba discount card, are:
- Being a resident of the United States or Puerto Rico
- Being age 18 or older
- Having a valid Tresiba prescription
- Being covered at less than 100% for Tresiba under a commercial (private) health insurance plan
Anyone who gets their health and prescription coverage through a government-funded insurance plan is ineligible for a Tresiba savings card. That includes people enrolled in Medicare, Medicaid, CHAMPUS, Department of Defense, Veterans Administration health insurance, and other government-funded insurance plans. It is possible that someone with Medicare Part A or Part B who also have commercial prescription coverage for Tresiba may still qualify for a Tresiba savings card.
How Much Can I Save with a Tresiba Savings Card?
With a Tresiba savings card, you may pay as little as $25 or no more than $99 per prescription. The maximum savings per prescription is $150.
How Can Simplefill Help Me Save on Tresiba?
A diagnosis of diabetes brings a lot of uncertainty into the lives of patients and their families because of the potential for serious complications such as vision loss, cardiovascular problems, amputations, kidney failure, and more.
Simplefill knows how stressful life can be for those who need to maintain an uninterrupted supply of the costly medications they rely on to manage chronic diseases. In many cases, such medications may be needed for a lifetime. Even for patients with commercial insurance, the copays on such essential medications can be unaffordable.
We find it unacceptable that some financially struggling patients with chronic illnesses will cut down their dosages, or skip doses entirely. The level of financial stress can be high enough to have a negative impact on patients’ health and on the quality of life for entire families. Simplefill is in the business of helping relieve some of that stress by finding ways for patients to pay less for the medications they need.
We raise public awareness of the availability of prescription assistance. And we serve our members by connecting them with the programs and organizations that can provide the prescription assistance they need.
