No insurance

I have no insurance at the moment. Just applied to covered California. My bronchotis cough is so bad at night , I'm so short of breath. I bought a nebulizer and my GP will prescribed the medicine for it. Does anyone one know how much albuterol will cost me in the meantime?

    Hi @Milena, have you taken a look at ? It lists the price of albuterol at different pharmacies and most have a coupon you can print (or probably show on your phone). Some you don't need a coupon for. The generic version of albuterol  (which I linked to above) with a coupon looks like it is around $10-$13 with a coupon for most pharmacies. 

    In case that is not helpful to you,  detailing other actions to take to make your asthma medications more affordable.

    Hope you are able to get coverage in California soon, and hoping these tips can help in the meantime.

    Hi, Milena, and hugs on the no insurance. I definitely recommend the  that Megan linked to above.

    You may be eligible for help through other . AAFA also has several listed non profit organizations that may be able to help listed on its page about .

    Another option is a program called  which offers some versions of albuterol for nebulizers at a low cost to eligible patients.

    Here's a screen shot of what they offer and their current prices — keep in mind you have to be eligible for the program and your doctor has to provide a prescription.

    Hope that helps AND that you can get some insurance!

    @Milena have you been able to get insurance coverage? Were you able to get the albuterol for the nebulizer?
