To find out how much you’ll pay for carvedilol, talk with your doctor, pharmacist, or insurance provider.

Note: If you have insurance, you may need to get prior authorization before your insurance provider will cover carvedilol. This means your insurer and your doctor will discuss carvedilol in regard to your treatment. Then the insurance company will determine whether the drug is covered. If carvedilol requires prior authorization and you don’t receive it before you start treatment, you could pay the full cost of the drug.

Be sure to ask your insurance company whether carvedilol requires prior authorization.

Carvedilol is a generic drug. This means it’s an exact copy of the active drug in a brand-name medication. A generic is considered to be just as safe and effective as the original drug, but it usually costs less.

Carvedilol comes in brand-name versions called Coreg and Coreg CR. To find out how the costs of Coreg and Coreg CR compare with the costs of the generic versions, talk with your doctor, pharmacist, or insurance provider.

If you’ve been prescribed carvedilol and you’re interested in taking Coreg instead, talk with your doctor. They may prefer that you take one version instead of the other. In addition, you’ll need to check with your insurance provider. This is because your insurance may only cover one drug or the other.

Why is there such a cost difference between brand-name drugs and generics?

Years of research and testing are needed to ensure that brand-name drugs are safe and effective. This testing can make the drugs expensive. The drugmaker of a brand-name drug can sell the drug for up to 20 years. After that, other drugmakers can create generic versions. This competition in the market can lead to lower costs for generics. And because generics have the same active ingredients as brand-name drugs, they don’t need to be studied again. This can also lead to lower generic costs.

If you take carvedilol long term, you may be able to lower your costs in the following ways:

Look into getting a 90-day supply of your medication. You may be able to get a 90-day supply of carvedilol if approved by your insurance company. This could reduce your number of trips to the pharmacy and help lower the cost of carvedilol. If you’re interested in getting a 90-day supply of this drug, talk with your doctor, pharmacist, or insurance provider.

Use a mail-order pharmacy to get your medication. Using a mail-order pharmacy might help lower your cost for carvedilol. Plus, you could get your medication without leaving home. Some Medicare plans may help cover the cost of mail-order drugs. You may also be able to get a 90-day supply of the drug through mail order. If you don’t have health insurance, talk with your doctor or pharmacist. They may be able to suggest online pharmacy options that could work for you.

Examples of questions you may want to ask your doctor or insurance provider include:

  • Do carvedilol tablets cost less than the extended-release capsules?
  • Does the cost of carvedilol depend on my dosage?
