Am I eligible for the Lo Loestrin Fe patient assistance program?

To find out if you are eligible for Lo Loestrin Fe assistance you can apply online using our enrollment application. Each pharmaceutical company sets its eligibility criteria, and we will review your application individually to determine if you may be eligible. The three main factors to consider are:

  • I am a permanent, legal resident of the United States or Puerto Rico
  • I am uninsured or my insurance doesn’t cover my medication
  • I meet certain income eligibility requirements

How do I apply for the Lo Loestrin Fe patient assistance program?

Our application process aims to make it as easy as possible to apply for the Lo Loestrin Fe patient assistance program. The first step is to complete our online enrollment application. We will ask you for details about your healthcare provider, your insurance plan, and your household income as this information is required by the pharmaceutical companies. We may be able to help you apply for other patient assistance programs too, so be sure to tell us about any medications you are taking as well as Lo Loestrin Fe.

NiceRx will review your application and determine whether you may be eligible for Lo Loestrin Fe assistance. If so, we will handle the full enrollment process for you and prepare all required documents for your healthcare provider to sign. Once you are successfully enrolled in the Lo Loestrin Fe patient assistance program, we will help you manage your prescription refills by requesting refills on your behalf throughout your enrollment period. At the end of your enrollment period we will contact you for updated information and seek to re-enroll you so you can continue to access affordable Lo Loestrin Fe.

What is Lo Loestrin Fe?

Lo Loestrin Fe is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Abbvie. Lo Loestrin Fe is a combination birth control pill that prevents ovulation (the release of an egg from an ovary) and prevents pregnancy in women. Lo Loestrin Fe will also cause changes in your cervical mucus and uterine lining. These changes make it more difficult for sperm to reach the uterus and for a fertilized egg to attach to the uterus.

Lo Loestrin Fe is available in tablet form, in the following doses: 24 blue tablets (active), containing 1 mg norethindrone acetate and 10 mcg ethinyl estradiol, 2 white tablets (active), containing 10 mcg ethinyl estradiol, and 2 brown tablets (non-hormonal placebo), each containing 75 mg ferrous fumarate.

Always speak with a healthcare professional for medical advice about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.
