Costs Associated With COPD

Posted on May 11, 2018

You probably already know that COPD is one of the most expensive health conditions. COPD includes several chronic conditions (chronic bronchitis and emphysema, and asthma) and requires careful management. Treatments range from medicines to inhalers to oxygen. Figuring out how to pay for COPD costs is easier when learning from others with COPD.

On MyCOPDTeam, the social network and online support group for those living with COPD, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. The cost of living with COPD is one of the top 10 topics most discussed.

Here are some question-and-answer threads about the cost of living with COPD:

I kept track of the cost of prescriptions and medical equipment and it came to $4,000 and I have insurance!

I have 3 inhalers now and one of them costs $168 a month with insurance. Yikes!

The pharmacy substituted a generic without telling me, now I have to pay more to start replacing the generic inhalers with the brand name inhalers.

Here are some conversations about the cost of living with COPD:

I'm looking to switch my drug insurance carrier. My express scripts/medicare costs too much. Any recommendations?

I can't afford my rescue inhaler. What should I do?

How much do people pay around the world for COPD medication?

Can you relate?
