Wegovy WAC Pricing Analysis

As a follow up to FENIX’s Wegovy label analysis from yesterday, FENIX provides additional thoughts on the Wegovy WAC pricing vs. Saxenda. According to Novo Nordisk’s pricing websites, both Wegovy and Saxenda are being offered at the same WAC of $1,349.02. However, since a 4-pen pack of Wegovy is for 28 days and a five-pen pack of Saxenda is for 30 days, the daily cost of Wegovy is slightly higher than that of Saxenda (see table below). Below, FENIX provides insight on why Novo would offer a premium product near pricing parity with its predecessor.
