Vosevi (sofosbuvir/velpatasvir/voxilaprevir) is a brand-name oral tablet prescribed for hepatitis C in adults. The cost of the drug with and without insurance can depend on several factors, such as whether Vosevi has a savings program.

Vosevi is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection. It’s approved for use in adults who’ve received certain other HCV treatments.

Keep reading for information about Vosevi’s cost and savings programs. For other details about Vosevi, including its use in treating hepatitis C, you can review this article.

As with all medications, the cost of Vosevi can vary. Factors that may affect the price you’ll pay include:

  • your treatment plan
  • your insurance coverage
  • the pharmacy you use
  • whether Vosevi has a savings program (see the “Financial and insurance assistance” section below)

To find out what the cost of Vosevi will be for you, talk with your doctor, pharmacist, or insurance provider.

A generic version of Vosevi isn’t available. Vosevi is only available as a brand-name drug. A generic drug is an exact copy of the active ingredient in a brand-name medication. Generics tend to cost less than brand-name drugs.


Brand-name drugs can be expensive because of the research needed to test their safety and effectiveness. The manufacturer of a brand-name drug can sell it for up to 20 years. When the brand-name drug’s patent expires, multiple manufacturers can create generic versions. This marketplace competition may lead to lower costs for generics. Also, because generics contain the same active ingredients as brand-name drugs, they don’t require the same costly testing.

Vosevi is typically taken for 12 weeks. You may be able to lower its cost in the following ways.

Getting a 3-month supply

You may be able to get a 3-month supply of Vosevi. If approved by your insurance company, getting a 3-month supply of the drug could reduce your number of trips to the pharmacy and help lower the cost. If you’re interested in this option, check with your doctor, pharmacist, or insurance provider.

Using a mail-order pharmacy

Vosevi may be available through a mail-order pharmacy. Using this type of service may help lower the drug’s cost and allow you to receive your medication without leaving home. Some Medicare plans may help cover the cost of mail-order medications. You may also be able to get a 3-month supply of the drug via mail order.

If you don’t have health insurance, talk with your doctor or pharmacist. They may be able to suggest online pharmacy options that could work for you.

If you need financial support to pay for Vosevi, or if you need help understanding your insurance coverage, help is available. For example:

  • the quantity you’re prescribed
  • whether you apply and qualify for any available savings programs
  • your treatment plan
  • the pharmacy you use

These same factors may affect your price for Vosevi if you have insurance. But the cost with insurance will also depend on:

Below is information you may want to consider if you have insurance and your doctor prescribes Vosevi.

If you have insurance, your insurance company may require prior authorization before it covers Vosevi. This means the company and your doctor will discuss Vosevi in regard to your treatment. The insurance company will then determine whether they’ll cover the medication.

If a drug requires prior authorization but you start treatment without the prior approval, you could pay the full cost of the medication. You can ask your insurance company whether Vosevi requires prior authorization.
