Both Flovent HFA and Flovent Diskus will soon only be available as the generic drugs Fluticasone Propionate HFA and Fluticasone Propionate Diskus. A generic contains an exact copy of the active drug (ingredient that makes a drug work) in a brand-name medication. A generic is considered just as safe and effective as the original drug but tends to cost less.

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 manufacturer of a brand-name drug can sell the drug exclusively 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 Flovent 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 Flovent if approved by your insurance company. This could reduce your number of trips to the pharmacy and help lower the cost of the drug. If you’re interested in getting a 90-day supply of Flovent, 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 Flovent. 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.

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

What’s the cost of Flovent with insurance?

Is Flovent covered by Medicare?

It may be. To find out whether your Medicare plan covers the cost of Flovent, call your plan provider. There are many different types of Medicare plans, and your cost and coverage depend on your particular plan’s benefits.

Keep in mind that your plan may have prior authorization requirements before it will cover Flovent. (See the “Prior authorization” section below for more information.)

You can also ask your doctor or pharmacist about the cost of Flovent if you have Medicare.

If you have insurance, you may need to get prior authorization before your insurance provider will cover Flovent. This means your insurer and your doctor will discuss Flovent in regard to your treatment. Then the insurance company will determine whether the drug is covered. If Flovent 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 Flovent requires prior authorization.

If you still have questions about the cost of Flovent, talk with your doctor or pharmacist. They may be able to give you a better idea of what you’ll pay for this drug. But if you have health insurance, you’ll need to talk with your insurance provider to learn the actual price you’d pay for Flovent.

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

  • Do higher strengths of Flovent cost more than lower strengths?
  • What other generic treatments can replace Flovent?
  • How does the cost of Flovent HFA compare with that of Flovent Diskus?
