Dabigatran to Cost $237 per Month at the Drugstore

It looks like Pradaxa (dabigatran) will cost about $237 a month at the drugstore counter. A Boehringer Ingelheim representative says the wholesale acquisition cost (WAC) of the drug is set at $6.75 per day for 2 pills. The price will apply to both the 150-mg and the 75-mg capsules.  According to knowledgeable experts, the retail cost of drugs at pharmacies is typically 17% over the WAC. The retail price of Pradaxa is therefore likely to be $7.90 per day, or $237 per month.

    It will be interesting to see how the drug insurance programs target this new drug, i.e. wether it will be first ,second or third tier.
