That's exactly what I thought - too good to be true! But it works! I forget exactly how many times you can do it, but it's up to $100 for a one or three month supply. Yes, I believe that is correct, just follow the directions and then take it to the pharmacy. I live in a very small town and was expecting the pharmacy to say "what the heck is this?" but apparently they'd seen it or something like it before and just gave me my insulin - no charge! The e-mail I got from Apidra said they were renewing the program for 2013. If you have any issues just call them, they're very helpful. (I called them because I ended up having two numbers at once and needed to straighten that out)
Here's what the e-mail said:
Apidra® SoloSTAR® pens are back in full supply—
and we're expanding our No Co-Pay* offer, too!
Great news – The Apidra® SoloSTAR® (insulin glulisine [rDNA origin] injection) pen is back! After a temporary shortage, there is now a normal supply of Apidra SoloSTAR pens. Tell your pharmacist to order your Apidra SoloSTAR today!
We are also excited to announce the continuation of the Apidra No Co-Pay* savings program. With the Apidra No Co-Pay* Savings Card, you will enjoy savings for all of 2013 on both Apidra vials and Apidra SoloSTAR pens.
