Prescription Savings and Patient Support

Lialda Patient Support Program

The Lialda Patient Support Program has been created to support you on your journey to becoming more empowered as you manage UC. To help you follow your treatment plan and take charge of your health, you will have access to tools, resources, and prescription savings (where eligible).


The Lialda Direct Program

The Lialda Direct Program

The Lialda Direct Program is a prescription mail-order program that provides more than prescription delivery. Designed for new and continuing patients, the Lialda Direct Program makes it easier to refill your monthly Lialda prescription, receive automatic savings on out-of-pocket costs for Lialda with the Pharmacy Savings Card (where eligible), and access tools and resources to help you stay on track with your treatment plan as prescribed. Patients enrolled in any government health care program are not eligible for the Lialda Direct Program (or the Lialda Pharmacy Savings Card Program). Other restrictions apply. You and your doctor can call CompleteCare Pharmacy at 1-844-4LIALDA (1-844-454-2532) between 8 AM and 6 PM ET, Monday through Friday for additional Lialda Direct Program rules. You must have a 30- or 90-day prescription.


Lialda Pharmacy Savings Card

Lialda (mesalamine) Pharmacy Savings Card

With the Lialda® (mesalamine) Pharmacy Savings Card, eligible commercially insured and cash-paying patients can lower their out-of-pocket costs for Lialda prescriptions filled during the 2016 calendar year. After activation, commercially insured patients must pay the first $10 per monthly supply. After these patients pay the first $10, the maximum savings is up to $500 for the first three monthly fills and $120 per monthly fill for the remainder of the 2016 calendar year. Cash-paying patients will receive up to a $50 savings on the cost of their monthly prescription and will generally pay more than $10. This card is only valid on one prescription per month.

No discount will be allowed for prescription costs paid for entirely by insurance plans, or reimbursed, in whole or in part, under any federal or state health care programs, including Medicare or Medicaid, as well as any similar federal or state pharmaceutical assistance programs. Patient must be at least 18 years of age and a US resident to be eligible. Only valid at participating pharmacies. A valid Prescriber ID # is required on the prescription. Void where prohibited by law.

As part of the Lialda Pharmacy Savings Card Program, you can also sign up to receive text alerts for refill reminders and confirmation of your out-of-pocket savings, and have refill requests sent to your pharmacy.
