CivicaScript Launches Initial Generic Drug, Plans Several More in Coming Years
CivicaScript last week began selling its initial generic drug, a 250 mg abiraterone acetate tablet. It’s the first of what the health insurer- and PBM-backed nonprofit company hopes are many medications that it will produce to help patients and payers lower their drug spending.
The product is currently only available through Intermountain Healthcare, a Utah-based integrated health plan and system that owns a specialty pharmacy, and Lumicera Health Services, a specialty pharmacy owned by Navitus Health Solutions. But CivicaScript President Gina Guinasso tells AIS Health, a division of MMIT, that she expects other pharmacies to offer the medication in the coming months.
