OSMOLEX ER offers affordable out‑of‑pocket costs*
Average Monthly Out-of-Pocket Costs for All Medications
Specialty or Non-Preferred/Tier 4 Medicare requires patients to pay 25% to 33% coinsurance for Specialty Tier products. Non-Preferred products require a coinsurance of 24% to 50%.
Preferred/Tier 2 or 3 OSMOLEX ER expected coverage†
*The Medicare threshold for drugs to qualify for placement on a specialty tier is $670 for a 1-month supply of the drug. Tier placement is ultimately based on the contract with individual insurance plans. Products with a list price (Wholesale Acquisition Cost [WAC]) over $670 are not necessarily placed on Specialty Tier for all plans. The average copayments for commercial patients are among covered workers in plans with 3 or more tiers of cost sharing for prescription drugs.
†The expected tier placement of OSMOLEX ER is based on the WAC and contract negotiations with insurance plans.
