EVZIO Is Affordable

In February 2016, kaléo enhanced the access model for EVZIO to ensure that all commercially insured patients with a prescription, even those with high deductible insurance plans, could obtain EVZIO naloxone auto-injector for $0 out-of-pocket. Even in cases where a patient’s insurance does not cover our product, we will ensure that they can obtain EVZIO for $0. For those patients without government or commercial insurance, the cash price of EVZIO is $360. For those eligible patients with no government or commercial insurance and who have less than $100,000 of annual household income, EVZIO is free.

No naloxone product, branded or even generic, is less expensive than EVZIO for commercially insured patients or eligible patients without insurance and with annual household incomes below $100,000 a year.

Thanks to kaléo’s patient access program for EVZIO, more than 200 million Americans with commercial insurance and a prescription can obtain EVZIO for $0.

Pricing Philosophy for EVZIO

As a company founded by patients with the potential for life-threatening conditions, we take our commitment to the needs of patients and their families very seriously. In this era of high deductible health plans, many patients find it harder than ever to afford their medications. We are committed to ensuring that patients with commercial insurance or those facing financial hardship should be able to obtain our potentially lifesaving products for little to no out-of-pocket cost.

Our Beliefs

For us, the patient always comes first. We believe the most important price is the price to the patient. We believe that patients with potentially life-threatening conditions deserve fair access to the latest medicines offering technological innovations that address their medical needs. We believe that when a healthcare practitioner prescribes EVZIO, patients should be able to fill their prescription without burdensome paperwork or high out-of-pocket costs.

Our Commitment to Access and Affordability

We have seen firsthand in this current healthcare system, the very real challenges patients are facing in being able to access and afford potentially lifesaving medicines. Similar to our product innovation process, our EVZIO patient access program has been built to solve for these challenges and help focus on what matters most – access and affordability to EVZIO for patients.

The current drug pricing and payer system is set up with a focus on stakeholders maximizing their economics over what should be the primary focus – what is best for the patient. The EVZIO patient access program is a continued commitment by kaléo to put patients first. It is our hope that other stakeholders join kaléo in putting patients first again.

INDICATION

What is EVZIO?

EVZIO is a prescription medicine used in adults and children for the treatment of an opioid emergency such as an overdose or a possible opioid overdose with signs of breathing problems and severe sleepiness or not being able to respond.

EVZIO is to be given right away and does not take the place of emergency medical care. Get emergency medical help right away after the first dose of EVZIO, even if the person wakes up.

EVZIO is safe and effective in children for known or suspected opioid overdose.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

What is the most important information I should know about EVZIO?

EVZIO is used to temporarily reverse the effects of opioid medicines. The medicine in EVZIO has no effect in people who are not taking opioid medicines. Always carry EVZIO with you in case of an opioid emergency.

  • Use EVZIO right away if you or your caregiver think signs or symptoms of an opioid emergency are present, even if you are not sure, because an opioid emergency can cause severe injury or death. Signs and symptoms of an opioid emergency may include:
    • unusual sleepiness and you are not able to awaken the person with a loud voice or rubbing firmly on the middle of their chest (sternum)
    • breathing problems including slow or shallow breathing in someone difficult to awaken or they look like they are not breathing
    • the black circle in the center of the colored part of the eye (pupil) is very small, sometimes called "pinpoint pupils" in someone difficult to awaken
  • Family members, caregivers, or other people who may have to use EVZIO in an opioid emergency should know where EVZIO is stored and how to give EVZIO before an opioid emergency happens.
  • Get emergency medical help right away after using the first dose of EVZIO. Rescue breathing or CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) may be given while waiting for emergency medical help.
  • The signs and symptoms of an opioid emergency can return within several minutes after EVZIO is given. If this happens, give additional injections using new EVZIO auto-injectors every 2 to 3 minutes and continue to closely watch the person until emergency help is received.
