Xcopri 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 ingredient in a brand-name medication.

Generics tend to cost less than brand-name 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 Xcopri long term, you may be able to lower its cost in the following way.

Getting a 3-month supply

You may be able to get a 90-day supply of Xcopri. 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.

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

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

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

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 Xcopri requires prior authorization.

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