Is your NovoLog medication too expensive?

The average out-of-pocket cost for 5 NovoLog FlexPens of 3 mL is around $338. Please note that this price does not consider your insurance coverage or the pharmacy you visit.

The four options you have to save money on NovoLog

There are four main ways to save money on out-of-pocket costs when it comes to prescription medication.

  1. Join a healthcare plan with prescription drug coverage (Please make sure the medication you are taking is in the insurance formulary.)
  2. Prescription drug discount cards
  3. Coupon cards that are directly for the pharmaceutical manufacturer
  4. Patient assistance programs, which are also directly from the pharmaceutical manufacturer

Now that we have given you the four main medication savings programs, there are a few hurdles to go over in each of those areas. We will be quick about this…

When you join a health insurance program, you will have high deductibles, copays, and things of that nature.

When you have prescription drug discount cards, the discounts are uneven all across the board.

Coupons sponsored directly from the pharmaceutical manufacturer specifically for brand-name medications are excellent in the short run. For the long term, there is a lot of money still left out of your pocket…

Last are the pharmaceutical manufacturer’s patient assistance programs that give away medication to individuals who qualify, which provides unmatched medication savings for the long term.

Do I qualify for NovoLog patient assistance programs?

Qualifying for NovoLog patient assistance programs is based on household income guidelines. Every patient assistance program uses different criteria for qualification, so we use the information below as general guidelines:

Prescription Hope Income Guidelines
  • An individual earning up to $50,000 a year may qualify
  • Households of 2 individuals with a combined income up to $70,000 a year may qualify
  • Guidelines can increase in families making up to $200,000 per year

Prescription Hope suggests that anyone looking to save money on NovoLog submit an enrollment form.

Suppose you do not qualify to receive NovoLogthrough patient assistance programs. In that case, we will never charge a service fee for that medication. Once you have been pre-qualified and your first charge has been paid but we find we can’t get your medication, you will be refunded any service fees paid for the medication.

Soon after submitting an enrollment form, we will determine whether you qualify to receive the medications you have requested for through patient assistance programs.

Suppose we find a program that will work for you. In that case, we will reach out to you for any additional information needed and reach out to your healthcare provider for the prescription.

Once we receive this information back, we immediately order your medication for you. After that, Prescription Hope works to manage medication orders, refill medications on time throughout the year, maintain up-to-date records, and renew your prescription medication’s enrollment every year.

Once all requested paperwork is received from you and your healthcare provider, your first order of medication is typically delivered within 2 to 4 weeks, we then continue to manage ongoing refills month after month. We will then place refills ahead of time so that you receive your medication on a regular schedule.

During the four to six week enrollment period, we recommend that you ask your healthcare provider if they could provide you with NovoLog samples while waiting for your first shipment.

Through our program, Americans save thousands every year from the retail cost of their prescription medications through Prescription Hope. To learn more about how Prescription Hope works you can visit our website.

What is NovoLog (insulin aspart)?

NovoLog (insulin aspart injection) is a rapid-acting insulin, also called fast-acting insulin, injected subcutaneously to help lower blood sugar levels in adults and children with diabetes mellitus. It is specifically used to lower mealtime blood sugar spikes and for correcting hyperglycemia.

NovoLog may be used along with long-acting insulin, particularly in those with type 1 diabetes.

This type of insulin is used to treat type 2 diabetes in adults and type 1 diabetes in adults and children at least 2 years of age.

Insulin aspart starts working within 15 minutes after injection, peaks at about an hour, and lasts for 2-4 hours after administration.

Important safety information & warnings

Never share your insulin aspart medication with anyone else, even if the needle has been changed. You may put that person at risk of having an infection, or you can be putting yourself at risk of getting an infection from them.

What to Avoid:

  • Do not drive or operate machinery until you know how insulin aspart will affect you.
  • Do not drink alcohol or use other medications that contain alcohol unless instructed by your healthcare provider.

Contraindications:

NovoLog is contraindicated in patients that have a hypersensitivity to the drug or its ingredients and during moments of hypoglycemia (low blood sugar). Signs and symptoms of low blood sugar include:

  • Sweating
  • Feeling tired
  • Dizziness
  • Hunger
  • Tingling of lips or tongue
  • Shaking or trembling
  • Rapid or pounding heartbeat
  • Easily irritated or anxious
  • Turning pale
  • Weakness and fatigue
  • Difficulty concentrating and clumsiness
  • Slurred speech
  • Unconsciousness
  • Seizures

How is NovoLog supplied?

NovoLog is supplied in different forms depending on your treatment regimen.

No matter the form of NovoLog you use, the dosage strength of 100 units per mL (U-100) will remain the same. Below is a breakdown of the different ways insulin aspart is supplied:

  • 10 mL multiple-dose vial
  • 3 mL single-patient-use PenFill cartridges (designed to be used with the Novo Nordisk insulin delivery device)
  • device
  • 3 mL single-patient-use NovoLog FlexPen
  • 3 mL single-patient-use NovoLog FlexTouch

The NovoLog FlexPen and FlexTouch have a dial for dosing each injection. The dial is adjusted using 1-unit increments.

Dosage and administration of NovoLog

Your dosage of NovoLog will depend upon your specific condition and insulin needs. Your healthcare provider will work with you in determining the proper carb-to-insulin ratio that keeps your blood sugar levels in range.

Your dosage and insulin needs may need to be adjusted if there are changes to your lifestyle. For example, you may need less insulin or time your insulin differently if you begin exercising more. Again, speak with your healthcare provider to determine your exact dosage.

Administration instructions:

Before injecting insulin, always check the label to ensure the vial or pen is not expired and that you are using the right type of insulin.

Inspect your insulin pen or vial before injecting the medication. Ensure that the solution is clear and colorless. Do not inject NovoLog if the solution is cloudy, colored, or if there are particles present.

Do not mix or combine NovoLog with other types of insulin if you are administering using an insulin pump.

Patients are recommended to inject NovoLog subcutaneously 5-10 minutes before a meal into the abdomen, thigh, buttocks, or upper arm.

Rotate your injection sites regularly to prevent injection site reactions. Injecting in the same area without giving that area time to heal can increase your risk of lipodystrophy.

Here’s our guide on injecting insulin for more information.

If your healthcare provider changes your insulin regimen, consider checking your blood sugar levels more frequently.

Do not inject where the skin:

  • Has pits
  • Is thickened
  • Has lumps
  • Is tender or bruised
  • Is scaly or hard
  • Has scars or damage

Side effects of NovoLog

The most common side effects of NovoLog may include:

  • Low potassium in your blood
  • Injection site reactions
  • Itching
  • Rash
  • Skin thickening or pits
  • Weight gain
  • Swelling of hands and feet
  • Low blood sugar (hypoglycemia)

Low blood sugar can be a serious side effect and may even be life-threatening in some circumstances. Talk to your healthcare provider about the best way to treat low blood sugar.

Call your healthcare provider and seek immediate medical attention if you begin to experience breathing difficulties, fast heartbeat, swelling of your face or throat, sweating, extreme drowsiness, dizziness, or confusion.

Drug interactions

NovoLog drug interactions

Before using NovoLog, talk to your healthcare provider about all the other medications you are taking, including other prescription drugs, over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, or herbal supplements. Drug interactions can cause severe and unwanted adverse effects.

If you are prescribed one of the above medications along with NovoLog, then work with your healthcare provider to determine the best intervention plan. Your dosage of NovoLog may need to be adjusted, and how often you monitor your blood glucose may need to be increased.
