I have Medicare and Aetna for drug coverage. The cost for 30 $250 mg pills was right at $180. I had to call for an authorization to continue to get refills. The rep gave me the authorization dept number so I called and they followed up by contacting my dr themselves for more info. Eventually it was authorized through the end of the year. I have since gone back to pro vigil which now has a generic version called modafinil. I fill 60 200 mg pills for $34. I had to call around and found Costco has it in stock. I had so many horrible side effects from nuvigil but I know it effects everyone differently. My dr gave me an initial coupon where my first supply of nuvigil was only $20. My insurance wouldn't allow me to use it but yours may. I believe you can find a similar coupon online that you can print out and submit to your pharmacy for approval. I hope that helps. From my experience at first I thought nuvigil was a miracle drug but then the side effects were debilitating. Good luck to you, believe me I know what you are up against. Take care.

I should have read over my response before posting it. Ignore the $ before the 250 mg of nuvigil. Also aetna required an authorization for modafinil. I take it for depression and hypersomnia. I received notice the day after my request for authorization that it was approved.
