ACCESS AND REIMBURSEMENT

An EUA allows the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to help strengthen the nation’s public health protections against chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (CBRN) defense threats by facilitating the availability and use of therapies needed during public health emergencies.

Under section 564 of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act, the FDA Commissioner may allow unapproved medical products or unapproved uses of approved medical products to be used in an emergency to diagnose, treat, or prevent serious or life-threatening diseases or conditions caused by CBRN threat agents when there are no adequate, approved, and available alternatives.

Details on infusion centers where antibody therapies, including REGEN-COV, may be available can be found on the HHS Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR) and the National Infusion Center Association (NICA)* site locators.

*IMPORTANT INFORMATION: Infusion sites displayed in this tool have been authorized to administer antibody treatments for COVID-positive patients under Emergency Use Authorization. These antibody therapies are restricted to certain high-risk patients and require a drug order (similar to a prescription) from a healthcare provider (HCP) for eligible patients. HCPs must verify eligibility of their patients and verify the availability of doses at an authorized infusion site before they refer an eligible patient to schedule an appointment to receive treatment at an authorized infusion site. Please note that the inclusion of a site does not imply current availability of doses. More states and locations are regularly being added. If not yet listed, ambulatory centers or other administration sites should contact their state health departments.

To order REGEN-COV, treatment sites should contact AmerisourceBergen Corporation directly at [email protected]. Treatment sites should also review the ASPR direct ordering process guide and can fill out a C19 Therapies Direct Order Request.

REGEN-COV is free of charge to requesting treatment sites, as the United States government is paying for the product. The combination therapy must be administered via a single intravenous (IV) infusion. Therefore, claims may be submitted for the reimbursement of the drug administration only.

Coverage and reimbursement of COVID-19-related treatments and procedures may vary from payer to payer; therefore, it is important that providers clarify and confirm any coding/billing requirements with respective payers.

Treatment sites must order REGEN-COV directly from AmerisourceBergen Corporation, the drug’s sole distributor. Approval of sites to receive product will be determined by AmerisourceBergen Corporation in conjunction with the United States government.

Clinical data icon

CLINICAL DATA

The combination of casirivimab and imdevimab makes up REGEN-COV, Regeneron’s investigational anti-viral antibody cocktail being studied in COVID-19. It consists of two noncompeting, virus-neutralizing monoclonal antibodies.

Casirivimab and imdevimab bind simultaneously to different, non-overlapping epitopes on severe acute respiratory syndrome 2 (SARS-CoV-2) Spike (S) glycoprotein.

Those who have received a COVID-19 vaccine can still receive monoclonal antibody therapy if they meet the authorized use criteria for REGEN-COV. Please consider the proximate risk for each patient when considering REGEN-COV use. Please consult the latest guidelines from the CDC.

REGEN-COV has been tested against, and was found to retain neutralization activity against, pseudotyped virus-like particles (VLP) expressing the spike protein substitution(s) defined in the below SARS-CoV-2 clinical variants.a,b It is not known how pseudotyped VLP data correlate with clinical outcomes.

There is a potential risk of treatment failure due to the development of viral variants that are resistant to casirivimab and imdevimab administered together. Prescribing healthcare providers should consider the prevalence of SARS-CoV-2 variants in their area, where data are available, when considering treatment options.

  • B.1.1.7 (United Kingdom origin). REGEN-COV retained neutralization activity against all spike protein substitutions.c
  • B.1.351 (South Africa origin). REGEN-COV retained neutralization activity against all spike protein substitutions.d,e
  • B.1.427/B.1.429 (California origin). REGEN-COV retained neutralization activity against the L452R spike protein substitution.
  • P.1 (Brazil origin). REGEN-COV retained neutralization activity against the K417T + E484K spike protein substitution.f
  • B.1.526 (New York origin). REGEN-COV retained neutralization activity against the E484K spike protein substitution.g,h
  • B.1.617.1/B.617.3 (India origin). REGEN-COV retained neutralization activity against the L452R+E484Q spike protein substitution.
  • B.1.617.2 (India origin). REGEN-COV retained neutralization activity against the L452R+K478T spike protein substitution.

Healthcare providers should review the Antiviral Resistance information in Section 15 of the Fact Sheet for Healthcare Providers for details regarding specific variants and resistance, and refer to the press release CDC website as well as information from state and local health authorities regarding reports of viral variants of importance in their region to guide treatment decisions.

These adverse events must be reported within 7 calendar days from the onset of the event. MedWatch adverse event reports can be submitted to the FDA online here, by using a postage-paid Form FDA 3500 and returning by mail/fax, or by calling 1-800-FDA-1088 to request a reporting form. In addition, please provide a copy of all FDA MedWatch forms to Regeneron Pharmaceuticals, Inc via fax (1-888-876-2736) or email ([email protected]). See the Fact Sheet for Healthcare Providers for detailed information about the obligation to report medication errors and serious adverse events.

REGEN-COV (casirivimab and imdevimab) is an unapproved investigational therapy, and there are limited clinical data available. Serious and unexpected adverse events may occur that have not been previously reported with REGEN-COV use.

  • Warnings and Precautions:
    • Hypersensitivity Including Anaphylaxis and Infusion-Related Reactions: Serious hypersensitivity reactions, including anaphylaxis, have been observed with administration of REGEN-COV. If signs or symptoms of a clinically significant hypersensitivity reaction or anaphylaxis occur, immediately discontinue administration and initiate appropriate medications and/or supportive therapy. Hypersensitivity reactions occurring more than 24 hours after the infusion have also been reported with the use of REGEN-COV under EUA. Infusion-related reactions, occurring during the infusion and up to 24 hours after the infusion, have been observed with administration of REGEN-COV. These reactions may be severe or life threatening
      • Signs and symptoms of infusion-related reactions may include: fever, difficulty breathing, reduced oxygen saturation, chills, nausea, arrythmia (e.g., atrial fibrillation, tachycardia, bradycardia), chest pain or discomfort, weakness, altered mental status, headache, bronchospasm, hypotension, hypertension, angioedema, throat irritation, rash including urticaria, pruritus, myalgia, vasovagal reactions (e.g., pre-syncope, syncope), dizziness, fatigue and diaphoresis. Consider slowing or stopping the infusion and administer appropriate medications and/or supportive care if an infusion-related reaction occurs
    • Clinical Worsening After REGEN-COV Administration: Clinical worsening of COVID-19 after administration of REGEN-COV has been reported and may include signs or symptoms of fever, hypoxia or increased respiratory difficulty, arrythmia (e.g., atrial fibrillation, tachycardia, bradycardia), fatigue, and altered mental status. Some of these events required hospitalization. It is not known if these events were related to REGEN-COV use or were due to progression of COVID-19
    • Limitations of Benefit and Potential for Risk in Patients with Severe COVID-19: Benefit of treatment with REGEN-COV has not been observed in patients hospitalized due to COVID-19. Monoclonal antibodies, such as REGEN-COV, may be associated with worse clinical outcomes when administered to hospitalized patients with COVID-19 requiring high-flow oxygen or mechanical ventilation. Therefore, REGEN-COV is not authorized for use in patients who are hospitalized due to COVID-19, OR who require oxygen therapy due to COVID-19, OR who require an increase in baseline oxygen flow rate due to COVID-19 in those on chronic oxygen therapy due to underlying non-COVID-19–related comorbidity
  • In a pooled phase 1/2/3 analysis of COV-2067, infusion-related reactions (adverse event assessed as causally related by the investigator) of grade 2 or higher severity have been observed in 10/4,206 (0.2%) of those who received REGEN-COV at the authorized dose or a higher dose
  • Overall, in Phase 1/2/3, three subjects receiving the 8,000 mg dose of REGEN-COV, and one subject receiving the 1,200 mg casirivimab and 1,200 mg imdevimab, had infusion-related reactions (urticaria, pruritus, flushing, pyrexia, shortness of breath, chest tightness, nausea, vomiting, rash) which resulted in permanent discontinuation of the infusion. All events resolved
  • Anaphylactic reactions have been reported in the clinical program in subjects receiving REGEN-COV. The events began within 1 hour of completion of the infusion, and in at least one case required treatment including epinephrine. The events resolved
  • The safety with subcutaneous administration is based on analysis from HV-2093, a randomized double-blind, placebo-controlled trial evaluating the safety and pharmacokinetic profile in healthy volunteer adult subjects. Subjects were randomized 3:1 to REGEN-COV (n=729) or placebo (n=240). Injection site reactions were observed in 12% and 4% of subjects following single dose administration in the casirivimab and imdevimab, and placebo arms respectively; the remaining safety findings with subcutaneous administration in the casirivimab and imdevimab arm were similar to the safety findings observed with intravenous administration in COV-2067

REGEN-COV, (casirivimab and imdevimab) co-formulated product and REGEN-COV (casirivimab and imdevimab) supplied as individual vials to be administered together, is authorized for the treatment of mild to moderate coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) in adults and pediatric patients (12 years of age and older weighing at least 40 kg) with positive results of direct SARS-CoV-2 viral testing, and who are at high risk for progression to severe COVID-19, including hospitalization or death. [see Limitations of Authorized Use].

REGEN-COV has not been approved, but has been authorized for emergency use by FDA.

This use is authorized only for the duration of the declaration that circumstances exist justifying the authorization of the emergency use under section 564(b)(1) of the Act, 21 U.S.C. § 360bbb-3(b)(1), unless the authorization is terminated or revoked sooner.

Limitations of Authorized Use

REGEN-COV (casirivimab and imdevimab) is not authorized for use in patients:

  • who are hospitalized due to COVID-19, OR
  • who require oxygen therapy due to COVID-19, OR
  • who require an increase in baseline oxygen flow rate due to COVID-19 in those on chronic oxygen therapy due to underlying non-COVID-19 related comorbidity.

Benefit of treatment with REGEN-COV has not been observed in patients hospitalized due to COVID-19. Monoclonal antibodies, such as REGEN-COV, may be associated with worse clinical outcomes when administered to hospitalized patients with COVID-19 requiring high flow oxygen or mechanical ventilation.

Definition of High-Risk Patients

The following medical conditions or other factors may place adults and pediatric patients (age 12-17 years and weighing at least 40 kg) at higher risk for progression to severe COVID-19:

  • Older age (for example, age ≥65 years of age)
  • Obesity or being overweight (for example, BMI >25 kg/m2, or if age 12-17, have BMI ≥85th percentile for their age and gender based on CDC growth charts)
  • Pregnancy
  • Chronic kidney disease
  • Diabetes
  • Immunosuppressive disease or immunosuppressive treatment
  • Cardiovascular disease (including congenital heart disease) or hypertension
  • Chronic lung diseases (for example, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, asthma [moderate-to-severe], interstitial lung disease, cystic fibrosis and pulmonary hypertension)
  • Sickle cell disease
  • Neurodevelopmental disorders (for example, cerebral palsy) or other conditions that confer medical complexity (for example, genetic or metabolic syndromes and severe congenital anomalies)
  • Having a medical-related technological dependence (for example, tracheostomy, gastrostomy, or positive pressure ventilation (not related to COVID-19))

Other medical conditions or factors (for example, race or ethnicity) may also place individual patients at high risk for progression to severe COVID-19 and authorization of REGEN-COV under the EUA is not limited to the medical conditions or factors listed above.

For additional information on medical conditions and factors associated with increased risk for progression to severe COVID-19, see the CDC website. Healthcare providers should consider the benefit-risk for an individual patient.

Circulating SARS-CoV-2 viral variants may be associated with resistance to monoclonal antibodies. Health care providers should review the Antiviral Resistance information in Section 15 of the Fact Sheet for Healthcare Providers for details regarding specific variants and resistance, and refer to the CDC website as well as information from state and local health authorities regarding reports of viral variants of importance in their region to guide treatment decisions.

    • The safety with subcutaneous administration is based on analysis from HV-2093, a randomized double-blind, placebo-controlled trial evaluating the safety and pharmacokinetic profile in healthy volunteer adult subjects. Subjects were randomized 3:1 to REGEN-COV (n=729) or placebo (n=240). Injection site reactions were observed in 12% and 4% of subjects following single dose administration in the casirivimab and imdevimab, and placebo arms respectively; the remaining safety findings with subcutaneous administration in the casirivimab and imdevimab arm were similar to the safety findings observed with intravenous administration in COV-2067
  • Patient Monitoring Recommendations: Clinically monitor patients during infusion and observe patients for at least 1 hour after intravenous infusion or subcutaneous dosing is complete
  • Use in Specific Populations:
    • Pregnancy: There are insufficient data to evaluate a drug-associated risk of major birth defects, miscarriage, or adverse maternal or fetal outcomes. REGEN-COV should only be used during pregnancy if the potential benefit outweighs the potential risk for the mother and the fetus
    • Lactation: There are no available data on the presence of casirivimab and/or imdevimab in human milk or animal milk, the effects on the breastfed infant, or the effects of the drug on milk production. The development and health benefits of breastfeeding should be considered along with the mother’s clinical need for REGEN-COV and any potential adverse effects on the breastfed child from REGEN-COV or from the underlying maternal condition
