Zepbound (tirzepatide) will soon be available for the treatment of overweight and obesity, according to manufacturer Eli Lilly. Since it is expected to cost around $1,023 per month for the once-weekly shots, Eli Lilly will offer a manufacturer’s coupon for the drug that may help patients save significantly and spend as little as $25 for a one- or three-month supply of the medication.
To qualify for these savings, you must have private insurance coverage that includes treatment with weight loss medications. People with government insurance coverage (such as Medicare and Medicaid) do not qualify for these medications. If you have private insurance coverage but your insurance does not cover weight loss medications, you still may qualify for savings of up to $563 a month, which is about 50% off the list price.
How to get Zepbound for weight loss
To get Zepbound for weight loss, you will need a prescription from a licensed healthcare provider. They will review your medical history to see if you are a good candidate for treatment with Zepbound or another medication. If they decide that Zepbound is the right treatment for you, the medication is expected to be available after Thanksgiving 2023, according to CEO of the drug’s manufacturer Eli Lilly, David Ricks.
