The Belviq savings card offers two ways to save money. If the cardholder’s commercial insurance covers Belviq, the savings card can take up to $75 off each prescription. If the cardholder has no commercial insurance coverage or if cash is used to pay for the prescription, the cardholder pays no more than $75 monthly, according to Easai Inc.
As of 2015, the Belviq savings card is not available to patients eligible for state and federal health care programs, states Eisai Inc. The company provides a complete listing of restrictions and conditions of use on its website. In addition to offering a savings card, the Belviq support program provides nutritional information from Eating Well, tools for meal planning and reminders to help patients stay on track.
Belviq is a prescription weight-loss medication approved by the Food and Drug Administration, according to Eisai Inc. In conjunction with diet and exercise, it helps overweight and obese adults lose weight. Belviq is a federally controlled substance because it can be abused or lead to dependence. Taking Belviq can lead to a number of side effects including depression, slow heartbeat and drug interactions. Women who are pregnant or planning to become pregnant should not use Belviq. Patients should report all negative side effects to their physician,
