Below are answers to some frequently asked questions about Farxiga and cost.

Is there a Farxiga copay card or manufacturer coupon available?

The manufacturer of Farxiga offers a Farxiga savings card. If you have prescription insurance, this savings card may lower the price of Farxiga for you. If you don’t have insurance, an Optum Perks coupon may help you save on the cost of Farxiga. (See the “Farxiga coupons and savings” section above for details.)

Also, see the “Can I get help paying for Farxiga?” section below for ideas on how to save on your prescription.

What is Farxiga’s cost with Medicare or with other insurance?

What you’ll pay for Farxiga with Medicare depends on your specific Medicare plan. For example, Medicare Advantage plans and Medicare Part D plans have different copay options for the cost of brand-name drugs such as Farxiga.

If you have a private insurance plan with prescription drug coverage, your cost depends on your specific plan’s benefits. Some plans have set costs for drugs, while others may require you to pay a percentage of Farxiga’s cost. Keep in mind that not all insurance plans may cover Farxiga.

If you have questions about what you’ll pay for Farxiga with Medicare or other insurance, talk with your doctor or pharmacist, or contact your insurance provider.

Does the price of Farxiga depend on the tablet strength (5 mg or 10 mg)?

It’s possible. The cost of Farxiga for 5 milligrams (mg) or 10 mg may be slightly different. What you pay may depend on your dosage and whether you’re paying out of pocket or have an insurance plan that covers the drug.

The cost of Farxiga can also vary based on the pharmacy you use and the quantity you get (such as a 30-day supply or a 90-day supply).

To learn more about the cost of your Farxiga prescription, check with your pharmacy or insurance plan.

Farxiga is available as the generic drug dapagliflozin. A generic contains an exact copy of the active drug in a brand-name medication. A generic is considered just as safe and effective as the original drug but tends to cost less.

To find out how the costs of Farxiga and dapagliflozin compare, talk with your doctor, pharmacist, or insurance provider.

If you’ve been prescribed Farxiga and you’re interested in trying dapagliflozin instead, talk with your doctor. They may recommend that you take one version instead of the other. You’ll also need to check with your insurance provider, as it may only cover one drug or the other.

Why is there such a difference in the cost of brand-name drugs vs. generic drugs?

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 manufacturer of a brand-name drug can sell the drug for up to 20 years. After that, other drugmakers can market 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 Farxiga 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 Farxiga if approved by your insurance company. This could reduce your number of trips to the pharmacy and help lower the cost of Farxiga. If you’re interested in getting a 90-day supply of this drug, talk with your doctor, pharmacist, or insurance provider.
  • Use the manufacturer’s mail-order program to get your medication. The manufacturer of Farxiga has a mail-order program. Using this program may save you on the cost of your Farxiga prescription. You can learn more about it by visiting the manufacturer’s website.

But if you have health insurance, you’ll need to talk with your insurance provider to learn the actual cost you’d pay for Farxiga.

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

  • Does the cost of Farxiga depend on my dosage?
  • Are lower cost options available to treat my condition?
  • Would getting a smaller quantity of Farxiga (such as a 30-day supply instead of a 90-day supply) lower the cost of Farxiga?
