Sanofi—makers of Admelog (lispro/rapid-acting), Toujeo (glargine/ultra long-acting), Lantus (glargine/long-acting) and Apidra (glulisine/rapid-acting) insulins—has announced a $35 per month insulin copay program in the U.S. effective July 1, 2022.

The new program allows uninsured participants to fill prescriptions for one or multiple Sanofi insulins for a total of $35 for a 30-day supply.

For example, if you use Admelog rapid-acting and Lantus long-acting, you are now able to receive a full 30-day supply of both types of insulin for a total of $35. Before now, Sanofi’s copay program offered a $99 30-day copay per each type of insulin needed.

The program only applies to those without insurance coverage and requires a valid insulin prescription. The program does not cover Sanofi’s combination insulin product Soliqua (insulin glargine and lixisenatide).

For those who have commercial/private insurance coverage, Sanofi offers a variety of copay cards, which lower the out-of-pocket cost to $0-$10 for most people. For those who have Medicare coverage, Sanofi insulins are covered under some Part D plans, which cap 30-day insulin copays at $35.

For uninsured low- and middle-income people with diabetes, Sanofi offers free insulin through the Sanofi Patient Connection program.

Adam Gluck, head of U.S. and global specialty care corporate affairs at Sanofi, shares that the expanded program was informed by patient feedback, “addressing access and affordability challenges for all people living with diabetes, regardless of insurance coverage.”
