How much does Repatha cost?
Medically reviewed by Drugs.com. Last updated on April 14, 2019.
Wholesale prices for Repatha in the US as of October 2015 were roughly $542.00 for one of the 140 mg single-use prefilled autoinjectors or a prefilled syringe. This equals approximately $14,100 per year if you use the dose every two weeks.
The actual cost to you or the insurance company may be different, depending upon insurance coverage. If you have a low income, you may be eligible for financial assistance to help pay for Repatha from Amgen, the manufacturer.
In October 2018, Amgen announced that it is making Repatha available at a reduced list price of $5,850 per year. This 60 percent reduction from the medicine's original list price will improve affordability by lowering patient copays, especially for Medicare patients.
Repatha is considered a specialty medicine and is not usually stocked at a retail pharmacy. Call 844-REPATHA (844-737-2842) for more information.
