Ventolin HFA albuterol inhaler update
Amount: $42.70 not covered by insurance
Posted by: forward in Newton, MA.Posted: January 25th, 2013 01:01PM
Dosage: 90 mcgBrand: Glaxosmithkline
Insurance: Tufts Health Plan
Have not heard back from Tufts about whether they cover this med in the formulary, but we did check some other pharmacies (Walmart, Costco) and they are all slightly MORE than CVS, around $50 per inhaler, so our statement that CVS seemed more expensive, which was based on internet search, was not correct (apologies to CVS)

Ventolin HFA albuterol inhaler
Amount: $42.70 not covered by insurance
Posted by: forward in Newton, MA.Posted: January 20th, 2013 10:01PM
Dosage: 90mcgBrand: Glaxosmithkline
Insurance: Tufts Health Plan
Tufts Health Plan seems not to cover ventolin inhalers for some reason. We are going to ask them about this. In recent years coverage for state employees has been deteriorating, and maybe this is part of that trend. It was purchased at a local CVS whose prices for these inhalers seem to be much higher than at local discount pharmacies (Target, Walmart).

Albuterol
Amount: $44.00 not covered by insurance
Posted by: Widdle in Cortlandt Manor, NY.Posted: November 9th, 2012 05:11PM
Dosage: 8.5 gmBrand: proair
Insurance: Empire NYSHIP
I haven't gotten a perscription in quite some time because my asthma is not that bad. I'm going on a trip and want to be safe, so I got my script filled. I was shocked when he said $44.00 when the last time I got it filled it was $5.00. I figured it had something to do with obamacare and went home furious. I didn't know the generic albuterol no longer exist, and I'm sure this is why my insurance paid $0.00 on this script. No Primatene mist, no generic Albuterol so only people that have money can now get asthma medication?? This isn't right and needs to be changed..I'm pissed!!

albuteral inhaler\'s brand or generic
Amount: $45.00 not covered by insurance

Dosage: genericBrand:
Insurance: none
Walmart is the lowest pharmacy in the south east and includes florida. A discount card will also reduce these cost by $3-5 dollars. I have researched all pharmacys, warehouse chains and online pharmacy's and no one can beat Walmart on any drug. Even if on medicare you would be wise to use Walmart to reduce the amount incurred by your insurance's maximum it will prolong the insurance coverage before reaching your donut hole if this is an issue for you.

Albuterol Cost
Amount: $51.00 not covered by insurance
Posted by: J.U in Potomac, MD.Posted: April 3rd, 2012 05:04PM
Dosage: 8.5gBrand: Proair inhaler
Insurance: none
Prices ranged from $48.99 at one pharmacy (with a saving card) to $61.99 (without the card which cost $25) Another pharmacy sold it for $51. The savings card is worth it if filling a larger number of prescriptions as it gives significant discounts on a lot of medications.

Cobra insurance is over 1200/month and I can not afford KP.org any more. I ordered this online and when I got to their pharmacy a few days later my membership had expired. So instead of $15.00 it will now be $67.00 per 8.5g net contents.
