From what I’ve heard from a pcp in Michigan it’s around $1,240 something but definitely below $1,400 somewhere in between that range for sure!
It’s is expensive around 1,200$ or more. I have Cigna and they totally cover it with zero copay. I would suggest you actually call a rep because I’ve had several friends who qualified for 6 months free.
How much does Vivitrol cost? Too much. If cost is a concern, why not take the pill - Naltrexone - and skip the expensive shot? And if you really want to quit and still have a functioning liver (as most people do) consider taking Antabuse (unless you have a health problem or allergy that makes that impossible). But you have to really want to take a pill that makes you incredibly ill IF you drink on it. And that's IF, not when. It's a deterrent that you can choose to take in the morning so the choice becomes obvious - don't drink - in the evening.
I was on this shot for a year myself. And I am a nurse. It was $900 a month for me. But the mental health facility where I received the injection had a state program that accepted so many patients from that hospital, and with my insurance the injection was free for me. I did however have to pay for my own drug tests once or twice a month. It's worth every penny though! If you really want to kick your habit, it's the only way!
It cost about $1,200.00 for one injection that "should" last a month. If they have a high metabolism, it only last about 3 weeks. (it does not block the use of crack cocaine)
Approximately $1,600. My insurance covered all but $200.
Usually, Vivitrol costs around $1,050. I know someone who has really good insurance w/a $60 co-pay. Also, the drug maker has a financial assistance program for those who qualify. This can probably be found on thier website if you look around long enough.

You could write to the company who manufactures & markets it: Manufactured and marketed by: Alkermes, Inc. SB Sidney Street Cambridge, MA 02139, perhaps they could also run a program & would give you the right price, or else call a pharmacy to inquire, take care.
