What can I do if I am commercially insured but cannot afford my ketoconazole?

If you are commercially insured and you cannot afford your copay or co-insurance you can opt for purchasing ketoconazole outside of your plan using the Rx Advantage card, with costs that are usually lower than a typical plan copay. If you elect to use this method, out of pocket costs do not contribute towards your plan deductibles.

If you cannot afford the cash price possibly due to income constraints, then there is the option of applying to state assistance programs like Medicaid. Often, you may be able to receive your ketoconazole without any costs at all. You can check Medicaid eligibility in your state by following this link HealthCare.gov. The government site is easy to use and you can select your state and it will navigate you to the appropriate contact point to make the application.

Am I eligible for the Rx Advantage Card and how much does ketoconazole cost without insurance?

Our website gives savings options to customers who wish to purchase ketoconazole, as either a brand or generic, without the constraints of insurance. By using the Rx Advantage Card, users can save up to 90% on the cost of their medication. The card can be used at over 65,000 pharmacies nationwide, across America. Even if you are insured, in most cases the cash price will be significantly cheaper than your existing co-pay. NowPatient is able to negotiate discounts on bulk drug purchases with pharmacy owners meaning you can access lower medication prices at nearby pharmacies using our card that can be conveniently stored in your NowPatient account.

What will my out-of-pocket cost be for ketoconazole when using the Rx Advantage Card?

Your out-of-pocket (OOP) cost will effectively be the discounted cash price you pay for ketoconazole using the Rx Advantage Card. If you are insured, your OOP expense can not be used against your plan deductible, if your plan has a deductible.

Yes. The Rx Advantage card is especially useful for people who have High-deductible health plans (HDHPs). It can be used for insured, uninsured, and underinsured persons.

Does the Rx Advantage Card work with Medicare or any other federal or state insurance plans?

No. We do not bill any federal or state insurance including Medicare Part D (standalone drug coverage) or Medicare Advantage (combined health and drug benefit). When you purchase your medication using the NowPatient Rx Advantage Card, you will be doing so out of pocket. The spend will not count towards your plan deductibles or gaps in the event you have a plan with a deductible. The out-of-pocket ketoconazole cash price you pay can be typically cheaper than your plan copay.

Do I need to pay for the Rx Advantage Card?

No. The Rx Advantage prescription savings card is FREE to use and store for NowPatient users.

Is there a ketoconazole co-pay program?

Generic medications like ketoconazole do not have co-pay card savings options. A Copay program, if available, would normally be for the brand name version of ketoconazole. You can search the brand name of ketoconazole and check to see if a co-pay program exists. Co-pay cards are programs run by pharmaceutical companies that offer you a direct way to lower your out-of-pocket costs for prescription drugs for eligible patients. The copay cards essentially allow physicians to prescribe medications that are clinically preferred.

Is there a ketoconazole Patient Assistance Program (PAP)?

Generic medications like ketoconazole do not have PAP savings options. A Patient assistance program, if available would normally be for the brand name version of ketoconazole. You can search the brand name of ketoconazole and check to see if a co-PAP exists. PAPs are programs that are run and sponsored by pharmaceutical companies. They offer uninsured, insured, or underinsured individuals access to high-cost brand-name medications, which may otherwise be unaffordable.

What should I do if I take too much ketoconazole?

Call your doctor right away or seek immediate medical attention if your symptoms do not improve or they become worse after using ketoconazole. You can also call 800-222-1222 to reach the American Association of Poison Control Centers or use its online resource if you think you've used too much ketoconazole. But if you have severe symptoms, call 911 (or your local emergency number) immediately or go to the nearest emergency room.
