Vascepa (icosapent ethyl) | Amarin [VIDEO]

VASCEPA® (icosapent ethyl) is available at a lower cost than generic icosapent ethyl for most patients

Commercially insured patients can pay $9 or less for branded VASCEPA using the VASCEPA Savings Card

VASCEPA is the exclusive IPE for many nationally insured lives

Certain plans lack coverage for generic icosapent ethyl and may block it altogether

Even eligible, commercially insured patients paying a generic tier copay may have their prescription cost reduced by using the VASCEPA Savings Card

If generic icosapent ethyl is rejected, rerun the patient's claim using these steps:

• Step 1: Check if branded VASCEPA is being filled—if not, override the system with your patient's permission

• Step 2: Check if the savings program is being utilized

• For further savings, call the patient’s provider and ask if they can prescribe a 90-day supply of VASCEPA

Eligible, commercially insured patients can pay as little as $9 for a 90-day supply with the VASCEPA Savings Card. Subject to eligibility. Restrictions apply.
