What are manufacturer coupons?
Co-pay cards (or manufacturer coupons) are offered by manufacturers of branded drugs. They are usually free but require registration on the company’s website. They are common when:
- Drugs are new on the market.
- Medication is not normally available on insurance plans.
- Generic versions are approved and the drug is at the end of its patent.
Typically, these cards do not work alongside Medicare or other government programs. Insurance companies also prefer not to use manufacturer coupons as they still end up paying out a significant sum for expensive drugs.
How are RxSpark vouchers different?
When you pay cash, RxSpark is a fantastic way to spend less on your prescriptions. Coupons are free and are generated through agreements with participating pharmacies rather than the manufacturers of the drugs.
