What is the list price of DOVATO?

The list price for a 30-day supply of DOVATO is $2,976.63,1 but it’s important to keep in mind, the list price is not the price most people usually pay for their prescribed medicines. If you have health insurance, the price you pay – sometimes called your out-of-pocket cost – is set by your prescription drug plan.

  • List price may also be called the wholesale acquisition cost or WAC. WAC does not include discounts, rebates, and other price adjustments to wholesalers or any other customer.

To better understand your out-of-pocket cost, contact your health insurance company to confirm the details of your prescription drug plan. For general information, select the option below that best describes your health insurance.

What does list price mean to me?

The list price does not always represent the actual price you will pay for a medicine.

With medicines, a lower list price is no guarantee of a lower out-of-pocket cost. If you have coverage through your prescription drug plan, your health insurance company is the best resource to understand your out-of-pocket cost.

  • I have health insurance through my employer or a private policy

    • About 83% of DOVATO prescriptions cost less than $10 per month.
  • I have health insurance through Medicare

    • The price you pay for your medicine if you have health insurance through Medicare may change throughout the year.
    • There are four phases of Medicare Part D coverage: the deductible period, initial coverage period, coverage gap – also called the donut hole, and catastrophic coverage. If you notice a change in the cost of your Medicare Part D-covered drug during the year, you likely entered a different phase of coverage.2
    • About 80% of Medicare DOVATO prescriptions cost less than $10 per month.
    • To better understand your out-of-pocket cost, contact your Medicare Part D Plan Sponsor to confirm the details of your plan and what phase of coverage you are in.
  • I have health insurance through Medicaid

    • Medicaid is a joint federal and state healthcare program. While federal law requires states to provide coverage for certain groups of people, states may offer additional coverage for certain drugs or classes of drugs.3
    • 88% of Medicaid patients pay $0 per month and the remaining pay under $10 per month.2
  • I have health insurance through Medicaid and Medicare by being “dual eligible”

    • If you meet certain income requirements, you may be eligible for Medicaid in addition to Medicare and be automatically enrolled in both programs. This is called being “dual eligible.” If you are “dual eligible”, your co-pay for prescriptions will be a set low price.4
    • If your income is too high to qualify as dual eligible, you can apply to receive support from the “Extra Help” program, also known as “Low-Income Subsidy.” This program can help you pay a set low co-pay for your prescriptions.4
  • I receive support through the AIDS Drug Assistance Program

  • None of the above apply and I do not have health insurance

    • If you are a patient who does not have health insurance, then there are options that may be available, pending eligibility, such as the ViiV Patient Assistance Program, of which more information can be found at ViiVConnect.
    • To better understand your cost, talk to your pharmacist.
