If you are commercially insured, you are likely able to save on your prescription

So you've just been prescribed Xiidra® to treat your dry eye, and you're ready to fill your first prescription! Like many dry eye patients about to embark on their treatment journey, you might be wondering about a few things before you head to the pharmacy counter:

  • "How much does Xiidra cost?"
  • "Does my health insurance cover Xiidra?"
  • "Are there savings options that can help reduce the cost?"
  • "Where can I find the information I need around savings?"

We get it. Navigating these questions might feel overwhelming, but we have good news for you. You may be eligible for a lower prescription price through the Xiidra savings program or offer.

The first step in finding the right Xiidra savings option is to understand what insurance coverage you have.


Many commercial insurance providers will help you cover some or all of the cost of a Xiidra prescription with the help of the Xiidra Savings Card. In other words, if you are commercially insured, you are likely eligible for a Xiidra Savings Card, which can help you pay as little as $0 for a 90-day (or 30-day) prescription.*

Signing up for a Xiidra Savings Card is super quick and easy. Just text SAVINGS to 48321 or register online. Once you enroll and download your Xiidra Savings Card, all you have to do is share it with your pharmacist when you drop off your prescription.

If you have comercial insurance, you may also be able to be reimbursed if you've already paid out of pocket for your prescription and you aren't able to use your Xiidra Savings Card at the pharmacy. If this sounds like you, you may be able to get a rebate check in the mail. Fill out our Reimbursement Form here.

Government Insurance

If you have state or federal government insurance such as Medicare, Medicaid, VA, DOD or TRICARE, you are not eligible for a Xiidra Savings Card. However, if you are on programs like Medicare or Medicaid, you may still have coverage options - in fact, 39% of those on Medicare may receive coverage for Xiidra (data on file, accurate as of August 2021). Contact your insurance provider to see if they can provide coverage for your Xiidra prescription.

Not Sure?

All insurance companies have different options for coverage, and we know it can get confusing. To get started, check with your insurance provider to find out what type of coverage you have and options available to you.

No Insurance?

If you are experiencing financial hardship or do not have prescription coverage, you may be eligible to receive Xiidra for free through the Novartis Patient Assistance Foundation (NPAF). To learn more or see if you are eligible, visit or call 1-800-277-2254.
