What can I do if I am commercially insured but cannot afford my bisoprolol?
If you are commercially insured and you cannot afford your copay or co-insurance you can opt for purchasing bisoprolol outside of your plan using the Rx Advantage card, with costs that are usually lower than a typical plan copay. If you elect to use this method, out of pocket costs do not contribute towards your plan deductibles.
If you cannot afford the cash price possibly due to income constraints, then there is the option of applying to state assistance programs like Medicaid. Often, you may be able to receive your bisoprolol without any costs at all. You can check Medicaid eligibility in your state by following this link HealthCare.gov. The government site is easy to use and you can select your state and it will navigate you to the appropriate contact point to make the application.

If you are insured with Medicare and have Part D or an Advantage drug plan but cannot afford your copay or co-insurance element (for example if you are in the coverage gap or Donut Hole) then you have a number of options:
RX ADVANTAGE CARD
You can use the Rx Advantage to purchase the medication outside of your plan at prices that may be lower than you copay or co-insurance element. If you elect to use this method, out of pocket costs do not contribute towards your plan deductibles.

If this is still too expensive or unaffordable then you can apply for federal support like Low Income Subsidy (LIS). To be eligible for Low Income Subsidy, you need to be resident in one of the 50 States or the District of Columbia. You can check eligibility online at SSA Medicare D Extra Help. You can also call Social Security at 1-800-772-1213 (TTY 1-800-325-0778).

They offer uninsured, insured, or underinsured individuals access to high-cost brand-name medications, which may otherwise be unaffordable.
