ICER Says Amgen/Novartis Migraine Drug Aimovig Is Cost Effective At $5,000 Net Price

Executive Summary

Amgen said when Aimovig was approved that its $6,900 list price was designed to make sure a lot of patients could access the migraine prophylaxis. ICER now says that's a reasonable price, assuming a $5,000 net cost for the CGRP inhibitor, but only for patients who have failed on other treatments.
