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

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

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

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

How do I check prices for sodium fluoride 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 sodium fluoride 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 sodium fluoride co-pay program?

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

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

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

What is generic sodium fluoride?

US brand name of sodium fluoride and manufacturer

Sodium fluoride is approved by the FDA to help prevent dental cavities in the U.S.

Prescription requirement for sodium fluoride

Sodium fluoride is available as an over-the-counter dental product. It does not require a prescription for use.

Active ingredient of sodium fluoride and mechanism of action

Sodium fluoride is an inorganic compound and the active ingredient in NaFrinse. It works by incorporating fluoride ions into the structure of tooth enamel, which helps to strengthen the teeth and prevent tooth decay. Fluoride also has antibacterial properties that can inhibit the growth of bacteria responsible for dental cavities.

Uses of sodium fluoride

Sodium fluoride (NaF) is used as an oral or topical form for the prevention of dental caries (tooth decay) and the remineralization of tooth enamel. It is commonly used as part of a comprehensive oral hygiene routine to enhance the effects of regular tooth brushing and flossing. Fluoride salts may be added to drinking water to help maintain dental health in the population.

Forms of sodium fluoride

Sodium fluoride is available as an oral rinse and in toothpaste. The specific concentration of sodium fluoride in the product may vary.

Dosage of sodium fluoride

The recommended dosage of sodium fluoride  may vary depending on the concentration of sodium fluoride in the product. It is important to follow the instructions provided on the product label or as directed by your dentist or healthcare professional. Take sodium fluoride 1 hour apart from foods such as dairy products containing calcium, aluminum, or magnesium, as well as certain antacids, laxatives, and vitamins or minerals. These can bind with fluoride, stopping it from being absorbed.

Precautions and warnings for sodium fluoride

  • Sodium fluoride  should be used as directed and not swallowed excessively to avoid the risk of fluorosis
  • It is important to supervise children during the use of sodium fluoride  to ensure proper use and avoid excessive ingestion
  • If you experience any adverse reactions or allergic symptoms while using sodium fluoride , discontinue use and seek medical advice
  • Inform your dentist or healthcare professional about any underlying medical conditions or medications you are taking before using sodium fluoride

Side effects of sodium fluoride

When used as directed, sodium fluoride  is generally well-tolerated. However, excessive ingestion or improper use may lead to adverse effects such as fluorosis, which can cause discoloration or mottling of the teeth. This is more commonly seen in children who swallow large amounts of fluoride-containing products.

Interactions with other drugs

Sodium fluoride  has minimal interactions with other drugs when used as an oral rinse. However, it is important to inform your dentist or healthcare professional about all the medications you are taking to ensure there are no potential interactions.
