Sanofi has decided that it will cut the list price of Lantus® (insulin glargine injection), its most widely prescribed insulin in the U.S., by 78%. The company will also establish a $35 cap on out-of-pocket costs for Lantus® for all patients with commercial insurance, underscoring its longstanding commitment to offer affordable access to medicines. These steps will become effective January 1st, 2024.
Sanofi will continue to provide different programs to ensure access and affordability to diabetes patients depending on their coverage situations and will continue to monitor policy and market changes. Our suite of innovative programs includes:
- 100% of commercially insured people are eligible for Sanofi’s copay assistance programs, regardless of income or insurance plan design, which, in 2022 limited out-of-pocket expenses for a majority of participating patients to $15 or less for their diabetes medicines for a 30-day supply.
- 100% of uninsured people are eligible for the Insulins Valyou Savings Program – regardless of income level – enabling them to buy one or multiple Sanofi insulins at $35 for a 30-day supply.
- We also provide free medications to qualified low- and middle-income patients through the Sanofi Patient Connection program. Some people facing an unexpected financial hardship may be eligible for a one-time, immediate month’s supply of their Sanofi medicine as they wait for their application to be processed.
