We know that managing migraines can be costly for many patients. As a way to help you manage the financial burden, we have compiled a list of current coupons and discounts offered by pharmaceutical companies, device manufacturers, and associations.
We have also included contact information for several prescription assistance programs, which provide medications at little to no cost for qualifying patients.
Cost of migraines
In the U.S., the estimated yearly cost of missed work because of migraine is more than $14 billion and the amount spent on migraine treatment is $1 billion.
A 2004 study found that the average migraine sufferer spends $6,400 per year on health care costs, compared to $2,691 a year for the average person.
To help reduce the costs, there are several discounts for people who suffer from migraines. However, combing the web for offers is time consuming. To make it easier, you’ll find numerous offers below:
