Is Prescription Care considered a Tarceva coupon?

The Tarceva patient assistance program offered to eligible enrollees through Prescription Care is not a coupon, generic Tarceva, 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 Tarceva coupon, keep in mind that you can likely save more on the medication via Prescription Care. When obtaining your Tarceva medication via Prescription Care, your total cost for the medication will always be $49 per month.

What is Tarceva prescribed for?

Tarceva is prescribed to patients with cancer, especially those suffering from metastatic non-small cell lung cancer and pancreatic cancer. The medicine can help to stop or slow the growth of cancer cells.

To determine whether this medication can help them, lung cancer patients need to undergo a special type of testing before they can be prescribed Tarceva. Tarceva treatment is only effective in patients with a particular type of genetic mutation, known as EGFR mutation.

Active Ingredient

The active ingredient in Tarceva is erlotinib-hydrochloride. Erlotinib-hydrochloride is a substance that slows or stops the growth of cancer cells.

Conditions treated by Tarceva

Metastatic Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer

Characterized by the abnormal growth of lung cells, lung cancer is the second-most common type of cancer. It is most often caused by smoking, as well as exposure to pollutants such as radon and asbestos.

Up to 85 percent of all lung cancers are non-small-cell lung cancer, which are relatively unresponsive to chemotherapy. In advanced stages, cancer becomes metastatic, spreading to other parts of the body.

Advanced-Stage Pancreatic Cancer

Pancreatic tumors are formed when cells in the pancreas start to grow rapidly. Serious exposure to certain chemicals (such as those used in dry cleaning), smoking, and being overweight are the biggest risk factors. There are two types of pancreatic cancer: exocrine, which forms in the pancreas ducts, and endocrine, which affects hormone-producing cells. Endocrine tumors are rare and most often benign.

*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.
