Average costs for Repatha with Medicare drug coverage1

Your copay and deductible costs for any prescription drug can vary depending on what coverage stage you’re in.

In the deductible stage, you’re responsible for the full cost of your prescription drugs.

Some Medicare prescription drug plans have a $0 deductible. Medicare drug plans cannot have a deductible more than $480 in 2022.
After you meet your Part D deductible, you enter the initial coverage period.

During this phase (the typical copay stage), you pay a copayment (flat fee) or coinsurance (percentage) for your covered medications.

Additional information

High cholesterol, specifically higher levels of LDL cholesterol, is bad because it builds up in the arteries. This decreases blood flow to the heart and body, increasing the risk of having a heart attack or stroke.

Repatha works differently than standard cholesterol medications called statins. Repatha acts by helping the liver clear LDL cholesterol from the blood through limiting the actions of PCSK9, a protein in the liver that inhibits the liver from doing this job.

Repatha taken together with a statin can dramatically lower LDL.

This medication should not be injected with other injectable medications at the same injection site. Serious allergic reactions have occurred to this medication.
