We serve those at risk of going without important, life-saving medications due to financial reasons.
Here is how it works:

  • STEP 4

Once enrolled in our service, you will be charged a flat monthly fee of $49 per medication. This fee covers the cost of your medication, regardless of retail price. Because each program conducts its own eligibility screening, final acceptance is determined by the pharmaceutical company.

Please note that Prescription Care is not an insurance provider or a discount card program

Does Prescription Care cover my other drugs?

A few examples of other similar drugs available through Prescription Care include: 

  • Epogen (epoetin alfa) 

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.

**Should you be denied acceptance to a prescription assistance program, you will receive a full refund of the fees associated with the rejected medication application.


Is Prescription Care considered a Procrit coupon?

The Procrit patient assistance program that’s offered to eligible enrollees through Prescription Care is not a coupon, generic Procrit, 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 Procrit coupon, keep in mind that you can likely save more on the medication via Prescription Care. When obtaining your Procrit medication via Prescription Care, your total cost for the medication will never be more than $49 per month. 


What is Procrit prescribed for?

Procrit is prescribed to treat anemia caused by chemotherapy, zidovudine (a medication used to treat HIV), and chronic kidney disease.  

Before or after surgery, Procrit may also be prescribed to reduce or avoid the need for red blood cell transfusions. 

Active Ingredient 

Epoetin alfa is the active ingredient of Procrit. It is a man-made form of the protein erythropoietin, and works by stimulating the production of red blood cells in bone marrow.  


Conditions treated by Procrit

Anemia 

Anemia is a common condition that occurs when your blood is low on hemoglobin and lacks healthy red blood cells (RBC). Hemoglobin is a protein found inside red blood cells that carries oxygen to the body’s tissues.  

The most common type of anemia is iron-deficiency anemia. The condition, however, can also be caused by a  vitamin B12 deficiency, folic acid deficiency, inherited blood disorders, or conditions that cause RBC to break down rapidly. 

If the condition is mild and/or develops slowly, you may not experience any symptoms. For most people, common symptoms of anemia include unusual tiredness, fatigue, headaches, irritability, and problems concentrating. If the condition worsens, symptoms can include brittle nails, pale skin, shortness of breath, lightheadedness, and rapid heart rate.  

 Treatment for anemia depends on the type and cause of the condition. Anemia caused by chemotherapy or kidney disease often requires injection treatments to increase red blood cell production.


*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.
