You can ask your insurance company whether Cialis requires prior authorization.
Here are answers to some frequently asked questions about drug cost and Cialis.
What’s the cost per pill of Cialis 20 mg? How does this compare with the cost of other strengths (2.5 mg, 5 mg, 10 mg)?
Cialis comes in several strengths: 2.5 milligrams (mg), 5mg, 10 mg, and 20 mg. The Cialis cost per pill and daily cost depend on several factors, such as:
the strength prescribed by your doctor whether you have insurance your treatment plan the condition Cialis is being used to treat the pharmacy you use if you’re paying out of pocket if you’re eligible for any cost-savings programs.
In some cases, the cost of the Cialis 20-mg strength may be the same as the other strengths. For example, if you have insurance with a set copay, your cost will likely be the same, no matter what strength you’re prescribed.
The cost of Cialis also depends on how often you’re taking the medication. If your doctor prescribes Cialis for erectile dysfunction, you might take it daily or only as needed. So your cost may be higher if you’re taking the 20-mg strength daily compared with taking the 2.5-mg strength as needed.

The active ingredient of Cialis is tadalafil. It’s available as the generic drug tadalafil. A generic drug is considered to be as safe and effective as the original drug. And generics tend to cost less than brand-name drugs.
If your doctor has prescribed Cialis and you’re interested in taking tadalafil instead, talk with your doctor. They may have a preference for one version or the other. You’ll also need to check with your insurance provider, as it may only cover one or the other.
To find out how the cost of this generic drug compares with the cost of Cialis, talk with your doctor, pharmacist, or insurance provider.
WHY ARE COSTS DIFFERENT FOR BRAND-NAME DRUGS VS. GENERIC DRUGS? Brand-name drugs can be expensive because of the research needed to test their safety and effectiveness. The manufacturer of a brand-name drug can sell it for up to 20 years. When the brand-name drug’s patent expires, multiple manufacturers can create generic versions. This marketplace competition may lead to lower costs for generics. Also, because generics contain the same active ingredients as brand-name drugs, they don’t require the same costly testing.
If you take Cialis 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 Cialis. 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 or online pharmacy.
Cialis may be available through a mail-order pharmacy or an online pharmacy. Legitimate online pharmacies may be an option to get Cialis for erectile dysfunction (ED) treatment in a convenient and discreet way.
Using a mail-order or online pharmacy may allow you to receive your medication without leaving home. However, your cost may vary based on the pharmacy you choose and your treatment plan. Keep in mind that online pharmacies used to fill ED prescriptions may not accept insurance. So online prices for Cialis may be higher than the price of getting Cialis through a mail-order pharmacy.
Online pharmacies may also offer telemedicine services, which provide medical consultations with doctors who can prescribe Cialis for ED. The service can also ship the drug in discreet packaging right to your door. Examples of online pharmacies include:
If you’d like to use an online pharmacy to fill Cialis prescriptions, be sure to use reputable and legitimate pharmacies that require a prescription. Your doctor or a pharmacist can help verify which online pharmacies are safe for you to use.
If you’d like to use a mail-order pharmacy, 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. You can check with your plan provider to find out whether you can get a 90-day supply of Cialis.
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.
If you need financial support to pay for Cialis, or if you need help understanding your insurance coverage, help is available. For example:
