Here are answers to some frequently asked questions about cost and nebivolol.

Does nebivolol 5 mg cost more than nebivolol 2.5 mg?

How does the price of nebivolol compare with that of similar medications such as metoprolol?

In general, nebivolol may cost more than metoprolol for various reasons. Nebivolol and metoprolol (Lopressor, Toprol XL) belong to a class of drugs called beta-blockers. Both are generic drugs used to reduce blood pressure.

One contributing factor to the cost difference could be that nebivolol has not been available in generic form for as long as metoprolol. The longer availability of metoprolol has likely led to lower prices.

Your prescription cost can also depend on the following factors:

  • the length of your treatment
  • the quantity you’re prescribed
  • whether there are payment assistance programs for your prescribed treatment
  • whether you’re paying out of pocket or have insurance

To learn more about the cost of nebivolol compared with other treatments for your condition, talk with your doctor, pharmacist, or insurance provider.

If you take nebivolol long term, you may be able to lower its cost in the following ways.

Getting a 3-month supply

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

Using a mail-order pharmacy

Nebivolol may be available through a mail-order pharmacy. Using this type of service may help lower the drug’s cost and allow you to receive your medication without leaving home. Some Medicare plans may help cover the cost of mail-order medications. You may also be able to get a 90-day supply of the drug via 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.

These sites can provide details about drug assistance programs, ways to make the most of your insurance coverage, and links to savings cards and other services.

Below is information you may want to consider if you have insurance and receive nebivolol.

If you have insurance, your insurance company may require prior authorization before it covers nebivolol. This means the company and your doctor will discuss nebivolol in regard to your treatment. The insurance company will then determine whether the medication is covered. If a drug requires prior authorization but you start treatment without the prior approval, you could pay the full cost of the medication. You can ask your insurance company whether nebivolol requires prior authorization.
