A model was used to evaluate the budget impact of add-on alirocumab or evolocumab in 27 844 target patients with uncontrolled LDL cholesterol despite statin treatment, compared with statins alone, over a three- year time horizon in a hypothetical US healthcare plan with one million members.

The estimated total healthcare budget impact during year 1, 2 and 3 was $3.62, $7.22 and $10.79 per target patient per month (PPPM), respectively, at up to 5% PCSK9i utilisation, and $15.81, $31.52 and $47.12, respectively, at 5%–10% utilisation. The estimated budget impact per member per month during year 1, 2 and 3 was only $0.10, $0.20 and $0.30, respectively, at up to 5% PCSK9i utilisation, and $0.44, $0.88 and $1.31, respectively, at 5%–10% utilisation.

Abstract

PharmacoEconomics & Outcomes News 792, p23 - 2 Dec 2017 PCSK9i therapy projected to have low budget impact in USA Add-on treatment with an PCSK9 inhibitor (PCSK9i; alirocumab or evolocumab) for further reduction of LDL cholesterol levels in statin -treated adults with heterozygous familial hypercholesterolemia or clinical atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease is projected to have a low budget impact in the USA, according to findings of a Sanofi/Regeneron-funded analysis published in PharmacoEconomics. A model was used to evaluate the budget impact of add-on alirocumab or evolocumab in 27 844 target patients with uncontrolled LDL cholesterol despite statin treatment, compared with statins alone, over a three- year time horizon in a hypothetical US healthcare plan with one million members. As a separate scenario, the budget impact of PCSK9i was also calculated from the perspective of commercial and Medicare Advantage health plans. Assumed total annual costs of lipid modifying therapy including PCSK9 inhibitor costs were ** $14 563.50. The estimated total healthcare budget impact during year 1, 2 and 3 was $3.62, $7.22 and $10.79 per target patient per month (PPPM), respectively, at up to 5% PCSK9i utilisation, and $15.81, $31.52 and $47.12, respectively, at 5%–10% utilisation. The estimated budget impact per member per month during year 1, 2 and 3 was only $0.10, $0.20 and $0.30, respectively, at up to 5% PCSK9i utilisation, and $0.44, $0.88 and $1.31, respectively, at 5%–10% utilisation. The introduction of PCSK9i would yield a net total healthcare budget increase of $1.21 million, $2.43 million and $3.66 million during years 1, 2 and 3, respectively ($7.30 million over 3 years).
