Financial Assistance

Helps ensure affordable access to Makena Auto-Injector

We believe that you should be able to focus on your pregnancy more than the cost of your medication. To support that, AMAG Pharmaceuticals is committed to making sure that Makena-eligible moms have affordable access to Makena Auto-Injector. We offer eligible patients* financial assistance.

Commercially insured moms whose health plan covers Makena Auto-Injector*

Most pay no more than $35 per injection
  • Helps lower out-of-pocket costs associated with copays, coinsurance, and deductibles
  • Based on a sliding scale from $0-$35/injection
  • Maximum AMAG contribution of $5,000

Uninsured & commercially underinsured moms

  • A full course of therapy at no cost

Each patient’s eligibility is evaluated on an individual basis. To be eligible, patients must meet the FDA-approved indication for Makena. In compliance with federal regulations, patients insured by a government-funded program (Medicaid, TRICARE, etc.) are not eligible. These programs and any assistance provided may be discontinued or modified at any time based on eligibility, state and local laws, and program availability.

*Financial assistance applies to the patient’s copay, coinsurance, or deductible for patients receiving Makena Auto-Injector. AMAG contributions against patient deductible and/or out-of-pocket maximums are subject to possible health plan restrictions. AMAG Pharmaceuticals will help lower the out-of-pocket cost each month, providing up to $5,000 in financial assistance, or until therapy is completed, whichever comes first. The cost per injection is based on the household income with no upper-level income caps. Enrollment into the program cannot be retroactive.

Restrictions apply. Patient must be at or below 500% federal poverty level based on residency to participate in patient assistance program.
