Anoro is only available as a brand-name drug. It doesn’t come in a generic version. A generic drug is an exact copy of the active drug in a brand-name medication.

Generics tend to cost less than brand-name drugs.

WHY ARE COSTS DIFFERENT FOR BRAND-NAME DRUGS VS. GENERIC DRUGS?

Brand-name drugs can be expensive because of the research needed to test their safety and effectiveness. The manufacturer of a brand-name drug can sell it for up to 20 years. When the brand-name drug’s patent expires, multiple manufacturers can create generic versions. This marketplace competition may lead to lower costs for generics. Also, because generics contain the same active ingredients as brand-name drugs, they don’t require the same costly testing.

If you take Anoro long term, you may be able to lower its cost in the following ways.

Getting a 3-month supply

You may be able to get a 90-day supply of Anoro. If approved by your insurance company, getting a 90-day supply of the drug could reduce your number of trips to the pharmacy and help lower the cost. If you’re interested in this option, check with your doctor, pharmacist, or insurance provider.

Using a mail-order pharmacy

Anoro may be available through a mail-order pharmacy. Using this type of service may help lower the drug’s cost and allow you to receive your medication without leaving home. Some Medicare plans may help cover the cost of mail-order medications. You may also be able to get a 90-day supply of the drug via mail order.

If you don’t have health insurance, talk with your doctor or pharmacist. They may be able to suggest online pharmacy options that could work for you.

If you need financial support to pay for Anoro, or if you need help understanding your insurance coverage, help is available. For example:

  • A program called the GSK Patient Assistance Program for Prescription Medicines is available for Anoro. For more information and to find out if you’re eligible for support, call 888-825-5249 or visit the program website.
  • Some websites provide details about drug assistance programs, ways to make the most of your insurance coverage, and links to savings cards and other services. Two such websites are:

How much does Anoro cost with insurance vs. without it?

What you pay for Anoro if you have insurance compared to what you’d pay without it depends on several factors. Factors that could affect what you pay for this drug without insurance include:

  • the quantity you’re prescribed (such as a 90-day or 30-day supply)
  • whether you apply and qualify for any available savings programs
  • your treatment plan
  • the pharmacy you use

These same factors may affect your price for Anoro if you have insurance. But your cost with insurance will also depend on:

  • your specific plan benefits
  • any prior authorization requirements you have for drug coverage (see the “Insurance considerations” section just below)

To learn more about what you’d pay for Anoro with or without insurance, talk with your doctor, pharmacist, or insurance provider (if you have one).

How does Anoro’s cost compare with that of medications such as Advair?

The price you would pay for Anoro versus that of Advair (fluticasone propionate/salmeterol)* depends on various factors, including:

  • the length of your treatment
  • whether there are payment assistance programs for your prescribed treatment
  • whether you’re paying out of pocket or have insurance

Like Anoro, Advair Diskus may be prescribed for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). (Both Advair Diskus and Advair HFA are also approved to treat asthma.)

To learn more about the cost of Anoro compared with other COPD medications, talk with your doctor, pharmacist, or insurance provider. Your doctor can also help determine the treatment option that’s right for you.

* Advair is available as two different types of inhalers: Advair Diskus and Advair HFA. To learn more, see this article.

Below is information you may want to consider if you have insurance and receive Anoro.

If you have insurance, your insurance company may require prior authorization before it covers Anoro. This means the company and your doctor will discuss Anoro in regard to your treatment. The insurance company will then determine whether to cover the medication.

If a drug requires prior authorization but you start treatment without the prior approval, you could pay the full cost of the medication. You can ask your insurance company whether Anoro requires prior authorization.

If you have questions about this process, contact your doctor or your insurance provider.

Now that you’ve learned about cost and Anoro, you may still have some questions. Talk with your doctor or pharmacist, who can provide personalized guidance about cost issues related to Anoro. But if you have health insurance, you’ll need to talk with your insurance provider to learn the actual cost you would pay for Anoro.
