Repatha Savings Guide
Repatha is prescribed to treat patients with high cholesterol whose condition is resistant to traditional statin and diet regimens. High cholesterol, especially high LDLs (low-density lipoproteins, “bad” cholesterol) is linked to arteriosclerosis (plague build up in the arteries), stroke, and heart disease. Repatha works — in conjunction with statins, exercise, and diet — alongside the liver to lower the levels of LDL present in the bloodstream.
There is currently no generic for Repatha. And depending on the delivery type (one-time monthly syringe, bi-weekly, or self-administered injections) Repatha can be incredibly expensive. The uninsured can pay as much as $1000 for a 30-day dose of Repatha, with other delivery systems costing hundreds of dollars per dose. High cholesterol is a genetic condition that is incurable, requiring a life-time of drug and diet maintenance. Even insured patients have co-pays that add up over time.
