Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, commonly known as COPD, affects more than 16-million diagnosed patients in the United States. And millions more have the disease but don’t know it.[1]

All told, it’s the third-leading cause of death in the U.S., and its symptoms can make managing COPD difficult for those living with it. What’s more, there’s no cure, so its long-term effects require ongoing treatment, leading to even more costs.

One of the biggest challenges is medication, with cost topping the list for many.[2]

COPD patients may require a variety of prescriptions to manage their symptoms, and simply knowing where to look for medication isn’t always easy. Especially when you’re trying to save money.

Whether you’re working directly with your doctor for samples or looking for the least-expensive option from an online or local pharmacy, being aware of your options is essential.

Sometimes paying with your insurance might be cheaper. Other times, you might want to pay for your medications without your insurance benefits. Either way, the choice should be yours.

We hope this flowchart helps you find your best option.
