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

If you are commercially insured and you cannot afford your copay or co-insurance you can opt for purchasing posaconazole 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 posaconazole 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 posaconazole cost without insurance?

Our website gives savings options to customers who wish to purchase posaconazole, 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 posaconazole when using the Rx Advantage Card?

Your out-of-pocket (OOP) cost will effectively be the discounted cash price you pay for posaconazole 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 posaconazole cash price you pay can be typically cheaper than your plan copay.

Does the Rx Advantage Card work with Commercial Insurance?

We do not bill your commercial insurance. When you purchase your medication using the Rx Advantage Card, from NowPatient, you will be doing so out of your 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 posaconazole cash price you pay can be typically cheaper than your plan copay.

How do I check prices for posaconazole and how do I use the Rx Advantage Card?

You can search for the prices at nearby pharmacies using our website. Simply search your medication and enter your ZIP Code and we will show you the price of your drug at nearby pharmacies. If you are happy with the quote, you need to create an account with NowPatient and generate your card. Next, simply go to the pharmacy and fill your posaconazole Rx. Ask the pharmacy to run the card and check the price, even if they tell you they have another card they use. Your card is stored safely in your NowPatient account.

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 posaconazole co-pay program?

Generic medications like posaconazole do not have co-pay card savings options. A Copay program, if available, would normally be for the brand name version of posaconazole. You can search the brand name of posaconazole 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 posaconazole Patient Assistance Program (PAP)?

Generic medications like posaconazole do not have PAP savings options. A Patient assistance program, if available would normally be for the brand name version of posaconazole. You can search the brand name of posaconazole 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 posaconazole?

Call your doctor right away or seek immediate medical attention if your symptoms do not improve or they become worse after using posaconazole. 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 posaconazole. But if you have severe symptoms, call 911 (or your local emergency number) immediately or go to the nearest emergency room.

Posaconazole is a triazole antifungal medication. It works by inhibiting the synthesis of ergosterol, a vital component of fungal cell membranes. By disrupting the integrity of the fungal cell membrane, posaconazole prevents the growth and replication of various fungal pathogens.

It is effective against various fungal pathogens, including Aspergillus and Candida species. Posaconazole also shows good results for the treatment of fungal infections refractory to other antifungal therapy.

Forms of posaconazole

Posaconazole is available in different dosage forms, including posaconazole oral suspension, delayed-release tablets, and intravenous (IV) injection formulations.

Dosage of posaconazole

The dosage of posaconazole will depend on several factors, including the specific infection being treated, the patient’s weight, and their overall health condition. Posaconazole may be taken during or right after a full meal or liquid nutritional supplement. It may also be consumed with an acidic beverage. Posaconazole has an average half-life of 35 hours. It is important to follow the dosage instructions provided by your healthcare provider.

  • Posaconazole should not be used during pregnancy unless the potential benefits outweigh the risks. It is not recommended for use while breastfeeding
  • Tell your doctor if you are allergic to posaconazole or other azole antifungal medications such as fluconazole, itraconazole, ketoconazole, or voriconazole
  • Tell your doctor if you have an irregular heartbeat, problems with blood circulation, or low calcium, magnesium, or potassium blood levels
