The cost of a Mirena or Kyleena IUD depends on what type of health insurance you have.

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) generally requires health plans to cover FDA-approved contraceptives, including intrauterine devices (IUDs) at low or no cost to the patient (eg, co-payment, coinsurance). Depending on the specific health insurance plan, patients may still be responsible for the cost of the product and/or product-related costs, such as insertion or removal procedure fees.

IF YOU HAVE HEALTH INSURANCE – 95% of women were covered for a Bayer IUD with little or no out-of-pocket costs (based on past benefit investigation submissions to Bayer in 2017).

IF YOU HAVE MEDICAID – All Medicaid programs are required to cover family planning services without cost-sharing. State coverage decisions and patient out-of-pocket costs can vary. Most Medicaid patients have no out-of-pocket expense for the Mirena IUD or the Kyleena IUD.

IF YOU DO NOT HAVE HEALTH INSURANCE, OR IF MIRENA AND KYLEENA ARE NOT COVERED BY YOUR INSURANCE – You can expect to pay the Wholesale Acquisition Cost (WAC), also known as the list price for the Kyleena IUD or Mirena IUD, which is $953.51. This comes to $15.89 per month over a 5-year period.

IF YOU NEED PATIENT ASSISTANCE – The Bayer US Patient Assistance Foundation is a charitable organization that helps eligible patients get Bayer prescription medicine at no cost. Please contact the program at 1-866-2BUSPAF (228-7723) Monday–Friday, 8:30 am–5:00 pm EST, or visit the foundation website at www.patientassistance.bayer.us for information to see if you may qualify for assistance.
