“How much does Vascepa (1 GM) cost?

“CVS – $90 for a 90 day supply (with Oscar’s Rx plan), or $9 with a coupon. I only knew about the coupon because the pharmacy assistant told me!

“I went to Vascepa Savings Program to get it. The coupon is renewable. In fact, CVS logged the coupon info into my account, so I get the discount without having to mention it. I’ve used it for 6 refills so far.”

Vascepa (icosapent ethyl) is used with low-fat and low-cholesterol diet to reduce very low-density triglycerides. it’s essentially prescription-strength omega-3 fatty acids. Read more here.
