LO Loestrin FE Savings Tips
Fill a 90-Day Supply to Save
You may find that filling a 90-day supply will reduce your total cost for this prescription. As an added bonus, you'll make fewer trips to the pharmacy, saving you time and money.
If you have insurance or Medicare, you may find that you receive lower prices if you fill your prescriptions through your plan’s mail order pharmacy. Many insurance plans (and most Medicare plans) are now offering similar rates at a select group of “preferred” retail pharmacies. Some plans may require that you fill through a mail order pharmacy for fills of more than a 30-day supply.
To switch to 90-day fills, note that you'll need a new prescription from your doctor; a 30-day quantity prescription will not allow 90-day fills.
Many manufacturers offer programs that will reduce your out-of-pocket costs for this prescription. These programs are free but may have some rules or restrictions, so you’ll want to review carefully. When you’re ready to use this coupon, simply present the coupon to your pharmacist with a valid prescription for your medication.

Lower Cost Alternative
There may be other prescriptions in the same class (that work in the same way) that could treat your condition just as well at a much lower cost.
If you're taking an expensive brand-name-only drug, it may be worth asking your doctor if there are any other less expensive, generic, or over-the-counter options that might work for you.
When Will the Generic Be Available?
It is possible that LO Loestrin FE may become available as generic ethinyl estradiol/norethindrone with iron after February 2029. Generics are typically much cheaper than the branded version of a drug.
This is the earliest possible generic release date based on patent expiration at this time. It is possible that ethinyl estradiol/norethindrone with iron could become available sooner or later, depending on FDA approval, other patents, and whether any manufacturers decide to make a generic version of LO Loestrin FE.
