If you go to a pharmacy and ask what the price of a particular prescription medication is, your pharmacist will typically not be able to give you a quick answer. Instead, s/he will need to check whether you have insurance that covers your prescription medications, and if you do, what kind of insurance that is.
All prescription medications have a list price, which is set by the manufacturer.1 Very few people pay the list price.
Toujeo comes in 2 different insulin pen options: Toujeo® SoloStar® (450 units per pen) and Toujeo® Max Solostar® (900 units per pen). Your doctor will recommend which pen is right for you based on your dosage. The list prices for Toujeo are:
|Type||# of Pens per Pack||List Price2|
|Toujeo SoloStar||3 pens (450 units each)||$388.71|
|Toujeo Max SoloStar||2 pens (900 units each)||$518.30|
List price is also referred to as wholesale acquisition cost or WAC. WAC is the price at which Sanofi sells its products to wholesalers.
The prices listed above are the cost of medication. There may be other relevant costs associated with the overall treatment (i.e. syringes, blood glucose strips, blood glucose meters, etc.).
The amount you pay will largely depend on a number of factors:
Considering these factors, 2 people could pay very different prices for exactly the same prescription medication. For the most accurate information, speak with your insurance provider who knows the details of your plan.
