    doctor Vig and Belviq prescriptions this week

    Today is Friday, 6 14 2013, before my clinic starts. From monday through thursday this week I gave prescriptions of Belviq to 19 patients, which is over 4 patients per day. I have handed out a number of Vouchers for the free 15 day supply of Belviq, which is accompanied by a prescription for the 15 day supply of Belviq. I am also giving the patient a monthly prescription of Belviq, which can be refilled 5 times. Both prescriptions are printed on our blue tamper proof paper. I am giving each patient a handout on diet tips, and a second handout about Belviq. I have filled out some prior authorization forms and faxed them to the insurances. A couple of patients who were on medicare and did not have insurance coverage of Belviq were going to use the Voucher, followed by cash payment for Belviq using the Savings Card from the Belviq web site. Cash price of Belviq at CVS across the street is about 209 dollars per month, and the Savings Card will decrease this by 75 dollars per month to 134 dollars per month, and can be used monthly for up to 12 months. I sent a group email to our Carondelet doctors here in Tucson about Belviq. I also send an email to a doctor at Arizona Community Physicians, another large group here in Tucson, and the doctor offered to send the email to those doctors. My patients are excited about trying Belviq for weight loss. I have given Belviq prescriptions to a total of 178 patients so far over the last few weeks.
