Lipitor $4 Copay Card

Is anybody using the Lipitor $4 Co-Pay Card?

https://www.lipitor.com/patients/lip...t_lipitor/save

I would like to know if it can be used with 90 day mail order prescriptions. The documentation only mentions one month supplies. The program runs through 12/31/2012.

Edit: I did find this, . . . so maybe.
For reimbursement when using a non-participating pharmacy/mail order: Pay for LIPITOR prescription and mail copy of original pharmacy receipt (cash register receipt NOT valid) with product name, date and amount circled to:
LIPITOR Co-Pay Card. . .

Is Lipitor off patent yet? I thought it was supposed to be off patent this year.

Call your prescription provider. United Healthcare said we couldn't use it with our mail-in 90 day prescriptions.

Be sure to include a copy of the front of your Co-Pay Card, your name and mailing address."

Just curious, did you try sending the receipt directly to Pfizer? If it pays, that would be pretty good ROI for a few minutes of your time, a sheet of paper, an envelope, and a stamp.

I followed the instructions for using a non-participating pharmacy and the check arrived today. The co-pay was $62.50 for a 90 day supply and Pfizer sent a paper check for $50.50.

Looks like the generic may be available in November 2011:

Are you guys who are on 20mg Lipitor getting the 40mg & cutting them in half? That's working out pretty good for my wife. My Dr. has me taking Wellchol instead of Lipitor because I had Hep A about 20 yrs ago & he's concerned about my liver with the Lipitor.

Did that for a while until the pharmacy found out and said it wasn't cool.

lol...yeah, well...screw 'em! My Dr. was the one who suggested it. I can imagine why the pharmacy might not like it...
