Lilly’s Lispro Authorized Generic Now Available in US Pharmacies

Lilly announced that its insulin lispro authorized generic (LAG) is now available. In March 2019, Lilly disclosed its intention to launch the AG at a 50% lower WAC price compared to Humalog; $137.35 per vial (assumed to be a 10mL vial) and $265.20 for a package of five KwikPens. According to the press release, Lilly said it is working with payers to gain broad coverage of the LAG; however, at least one large national payer, ESI, recently said it will not cover the LAG. Below, FENIX provides thoughts and context to Lilly’s LAG lispro launch.
