  • Combined household income
  • Insurance status
General income criteria

How do I apply for the Farxiga patient assistance program? 

Prescription Care makes it as easy as possible to apply for the Farxiga patient assistance program. Begin by completing our enrollment application, and tell us about any medications you’re taking, including Farxiga. You will need to provide details about your healthcare provider, your insurance and your household income. This information is required by the pharmaceutical manufacturers who ship your medication.

If we determine that you may be eligible for assistance, we will help to enroll you in the Farxiga patient assistance program. All stages of the application process will be handled by Prescription Care. Once enrolled in the program, we’ll also request your Farxiga medication refills on your behalf for up to 1 year.

Is Prescription Care a Farxiga coupon provider?

We are not a Farxiga coupon or a Farxiga discount card. We are a service provider that helps eligible individuals access the Farxiga patient assistance program. Therefore, we don’t offer printable Farxiga manufacturer coupons, Farxiga discounts, rebates, Farxiga savings cards, trial offers, or free Farxiga samples.

If you’re looking for Farxiga coupons, remember you can likely save more with Prescription Care. When obtaining your Farxiga medication through Prescription Care, your total cost for the medication will always be the same flat fee of $49 every month.

Can Prescription Care help me get Farxiga if I have insurance?

If your insurance company won’t pay for your Farxiga medication, or you have a high copay or coinsurance responsibility, we may still be able to help.

How much is Farxiga with insurance?

The cost of Farxiga will depend on your healthcare plan. Your healthcare provider or pharmacist will be able to calculate your copay with your current insurance. Remember, if you’re approved for the patient assistance program, you’ll likely save more on your Farxiga medication.

How much is Farxiga without insurance?

Farxiga prices without insurance will vary depending on where you buy it and the strength of the pills you purchase. You can expect to pay around $540 for a pack of 30 tablets of Farxiga 5mg or 10mg. With Prescription Care you’ll always pay a flat monthly fee of $49.

What is Farxiga?

Farxiga is a medication used to lower blood sugar levels in people who have type 2 diabetes. It is also used in certain people to lower the risk of hospitalization for heart failure. Farxiga is taken as a pill, usually once a day.

Patients with diabetes struggle to maintain a normal blood sugar level. When they digest food, sugar is then released into the blood and their bodies don’t absorb it as well as they should. This can lead to high levels of blood sugar, which can cause a range of health problems over time.

Farxiga is used alongside exercise and changes in diet to manage blood sugar. It helps to remove excess blood sugar through urine. The medication can be used in combination with some other diabetes medications too, including insulin, metformin, or a sulfonylurea.

Farxiga active ingredients

The active ingredient in Farxiga is called dapagliflozin. When absorbed into your bloodstream, dapagliflozin slows down the rate at which your kidneys absorb sugar from your blood. This causes your kidneys to release sugar into your urine. Your blood sugar levels then fall as you urinate.

Farxiga side effects & drug interactions

Like all medications, Farxiga can have side effects, although not everyone will get them, or experience the same ones. Common Farxiga side effects include dehydration, changes in urination, dizziness, back pain, and a yeast infection of the vagina or penis. More serious, but rarer, side effects can include low blood sugar (hypoglycemia), more serious urinary tract infections, inflammation of the pancreas, diabetic ketoacidosis, and a rare bacterial infection that damages the tissue under the skin in the area between the anus and genitals (necrotizing fasciitis).

These aren’t all side effects Farxiga can cause. You can find more details in the patient leaflet that comes with your medication. If you have any concerns about Farxiga side effects, talk to your physician or a pharmacist.

Farxiga can interact with other medications, changing how it and other medications work. If this happens, side effects may be more likely. Tell your prescribing physician about all drugs you’re taking, including vitamins and dietary supplements. In particular, let them know if you’re taking a diuretic or any other medications for diabetes like insulin or sulfonylureas.

  • Have severe kidney issues or are on dialysis

*Qualifying persons may obtain medications directly from patient assistance programs without any out-of-pocket cost (or for less than $49 per medication). However, our monthly flat rate of just $49 per medication spares you the hassle of tracking down the different programs and filling out all the required paperwork for each program.

Enrollees enjoy a full-service solution, as Prescription Care assists them and their physicians with the entire process. We prepare all required documents for the physician to sign, help enrollees manage all prescription refills, monitor eligibility criteria, and maintain enrollment.

**If you do not receive medications because you were determined to be ineligible for the prescription assistance by the applicable pharmaceutical companies and you have a letter of denial, we will refund any fees you paid toward medications for which you did not qualify to receive prescription assistance (Refund).

To receive a Refund, you must send the letter of denial to us by fax to 866-262-2603, or by e-mail to [email protected] within 30 days of your receipt of such letter. The Refund is your sole and exclusive remedy for any fees you may wish to dispute.
