Does insurance pay for Anoro?

If you have private prescription insurance or Medicare Part D, your insurance may include Anoro Ellipta on their formulary and your copay cost may be much lower, depending upon which copay tier Anoro Ellipta falls under. Check with your prescription insurance company to determine your formulary coverage copay cost.

What is a drug formulary?

A formulary is a list of drugs that a benefit provider has approved, typically for one year, to be covered. You may still owe a significant portion of the cost of these medicines.

Drug tiers are typically copay amounts based on the status of the drug on the formulary. For example, generic or preferred brand drugs are usually in a lower tier (like tier 1 or 2) and have lower copays, while nonpreferred brand name drugs or biologics may be higher tier and much more costly. Nonformulary drugs may not be covered under your insurance at all, but usually there are options for these.

If your commercial insurance copay is too expensive or you have no insurance, you may be eligible for cost savings or patient assistance through GSK, the manufacturer. Programs may not be valid for any government beneficiaries including those eligible for or enrolled in Medicare or Medicaid.
