What can I do if I am commercially insured but cannot afford my ipratropium/albuterol?

If you are commercially insured and you cannot afford your copay or co-insurance you can opt for purchasing ipratropium/albuterol 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 ipratropium/albuterol 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.
