Prescription Care can save you money

If any of your medications are not approved for assistance, Prescription Care can appeal the rejection at no additional cost.

Is Prescription Care considered a Linzess coupon?

The Linzess patient assistance program offered to eligible enrollees through Prescription Care is not a coupon, generic Linzess, or a discount card. Prescription Care does not offer printable coupons, rebates, savings cards, trial offers, or free samples.

If you are looking for a Linzess coupon, keep in mind that you can likely save more on the medication via Prescription Care. When obtaining your Linzess medication via Prescription Care, your total cost for the medication will never always be $49 per month.

What is Linzess prescribed for?

Linzess is prescribed to patients who have constipation caused by irritable bowel syndrome with constipation, or IBS-C. It is also used in patients who have idiopathic constipation, defined as constipation with no identifiable cause. The medication helps to improve the texture of stools and reduces symptoms like stomach pain, bloating, and straining.

This medication should not be used in children younger than six.

Active Ingredient

The active ingredient of Linzess is linaclotide, which increases the amount of fluid in the intestines and helps encourage bowel movements.

Conditions treated by Linzess

Constipation Caused by Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Irritable bowel syndrome is a chronic condition which cannot be cured. However, factors such as diet and other lifestyle changes can help manage its negative symptoms. The condition affects women more than men. It manifests in symptoms like cramping, stomach pain, gas, and bloating. Patients often experience either diarrhea or constipation. Linzess helps manage constipation caused by irritable bowel syndrome.

Idiopathic Constipation

Patients with constipation experience reduced ability to pass stool – usually three times per week or less – and/or difficulty in passing stools. Symptoms include straining, bloating, and incomplete bowel movements.

Idiopathic constipation is constipation that has no identifiable cause and is not the result of an illness. While the underlying cause for this condition is not clear, it is affected by factors like the amount of water and fiber intake in a patient’s diet.

*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.
