A little sunshine for a dark few weeks


My husbands PSA has been going through the roof, in a lot of pain and just not well. He was just prescribed Xtandi. I was able to get his Xtandi for $0 copay with a $25,000/year limit. The only requirement was that we have commercial insurance and agree to receive email information. The disclaimer said Medicare, Tricare, etc. can also apply. It took me 2 minutes to fill out the form on line and print his card! If you are paying the outrageous prices, please check this website out.

The website is: activatethecard.com

I hope this is helpful to someone. Peace and health to all!

Here is how this works..The drug companies don't want to lose your business because you can't afford the co-pays..As long as you have insurance to pay the bulk of the cost, they are willing to pick up any co-pays you would otherwise have to pay..They have various ways of doing this, discount cards, foundations, charitable organizations

You ate right about that. I'll take a discount anywhere I can get it!

Thanks for explaining this. I never realized it worked that way. I was still naive enough to think that it was some type of act of kindness.

kindness... hmmmm word sounds familiar. I think I heard about that word being used during WWII or was it WWI.

Good Luck, Good Health and Good Humor.

Been fighting all day because the pharmacy rejected the card. I've gotten three reason, we are federal employees, my husband has part D medicare (he doesn't), and he has medicare and we get reimbursed (which we don't) The drug company said we are eligible!

Tell the pharmacist just because he works in a drug store, doesn't mean he can be on drugs... What a jerk...
