Basaglar (insulin glargine) is an expensive, long-acting type of insulin. It is the first biosimilar insulin used to control blood sugar levels in diabetes mellitus, including diabetes type 1 and diabetes type 2. It is more popular than comparable drugs. There are currently no generic alternatives for any insulin brand, but Basaglar is a biosimilar to Lantus, one of the most popular long-acting insulins. It is not covered by most Medicare and insurance plans, but manufacturer and pharmacy coupons can help offset the cost.

Fill a 90-Day Supply to Save

You may find that filling a 90-day supply will reduce your total cost for this prescription. As an added bonus, you'll make fewer trips to the pharmacy, saving you time and money.

If you have insurance or Medicare, you may find that you receive lower prices if you fill your prescriptions through your plan’s mail order pharmacy. Many insurance plans (and most Medicare plans) are now offering similar rates at a select group of “preferred” retail pharmacies. Some plans may require that you fill through a mail order pharmacy for fills of more than a 30-day supply.

To switch to 90-day fills, note that you'll need a new prescription from your doctor; a 30-day quantity prescription will not allow 90-day fills.
