Coverage & Savings FAQs

  • Is YUPELRI covered by Medicare?

    YUPELRI is covered by Medicare plans. Your out-of-pocket cost for YUPELRI depends on the type of Medicare insurance you have.

    Medicare Part B (also called Fee-for-Service, Original Medicare, or Red, White, and Blue) covers 80% of the cost of COPD treatments like YUPELRI. You are responsible for paying the remaining 20% of the cost. Medicare Part B also covers most nebulizers as durable medical equipment (DME) for patient use at home.

    Medigap (Medicare Supplemental Insurance) plans help pay for your share of costs that aren’t covered. Policies are standardized, and in most states named by letters, like Plan G or Plan K; the benefits are the same no matter which insurance company sells them. When you have supplemental insurance in addition to your Medicare Part B coverage, you may pay as little as $0 out of pocket for YUPELRI.

    Medicare Advantage (Part C) is a type of plan offered by private companies and must follow rules set by Medicare. Most Medicare Advantage plans include prescription drug coverage. Medicare Advantage covers 80% of the cost of COPD treatments like YUPELRI; however, out-of-pocket costs may vary based on the insurance provider and plan type. Based on your specific plan, you may be responsible for up to 20% of the remaining cost.

    Medicare Part D helps cover prescription medicines you take regularly to manage chronic conditions, such as COPD. Typically, Medicare Part D is the insurance provider for patients residing in a nursing facility. Your provider may be required to provide some additional information before you can get YUPELRI.

    Remember, coverage is not guaranteed. Be sure to contact your insurance plan to learn more about your specific out-of-pocket costs for YUPELRI.

  • What is the list price of YUPELRI?

    The list price of YUPELRI is $1,366.19 for a 30-day supply.* The list price, also referred to as the wholesale acquisition cost or WAC, is the price at which Viatris sells YUPELRI to wholesalers and may not reflect the actual out-of-pocket costs for a patient at the pharmacy. This price is subject to change at Viatris’ discretion. However, YUPELRI is covered by most private and public (such as Medicare and Medicaid) insurance plans. If your insurance covers YUPELRI, your out-of-pocket costs may be significantly lower.
