How much does Mirvaso cost?

Postby David Pascoe » Fri Sep 13, 2013 1:00 am

This is a really interesting question. Just how much will Mirvaso cost when it becomes available.

There have been rumours that it would be $150 a month, but I would expect the unsubsidised price to be much more than that.

Mirvaso Cream (actually a gel) will be available in 30gm and 45gm tubes and you are to apply a pea sized amount to each area of the face you want to treat - so up to 5 pea sized amounts once per day. I would imagine that even a 45gm tube is going to be a bit of a stretch to last a whole month.

So for starters expect the 45gm tube to be 50% more expensive than the 30gm tube.

More to come as rosacea sufferers in the US start being able to fill their prescriptions for Mirvaso in the coming weeks. So stayed tuned to find out what is the average selling price for Mirvaso.

We have our first indication of how much Mirvaso will cost.

I called Walmart in NE. today. They quoted me $285.00 for a 30 gram tube. Looks like my dream is gone.....

anon24 tells us

Without insurance it will cost $290 for the 30 gram tube. However, I do have insurance, they just don't cover Mirvaso, so I went to Mirvaso's website http://www.mirvaso.com and printed out some savings, so the most I should have to pay is $80.

Also, it was covered by my insurance which brought it to $99 and then I used the savings card from the mirvaso website (http://mirvaso.com/) which brought it to $50.



Also see Mirvaso Gel Coupon (Cost Reduction Card) now available for a card that could reduce the cost of Mirvaso down to $80 or %50.

FYI - In Minnesota a 30g tube of Mirvaso retails for $303.97. I have Blue Cross Blue Shield of Nebraska, so I paid $50. The tube I bought on 9/27/13 expires 05/15.
