Synagis benefits and coverage for 2023-24 season
September 13, 2023

This article is for all providers that prescribe Synagis for our members

We offer medical or pharmacy benefit coverage options to our members who require respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) immunoprophylaxis and who meet the requirements outlined in pharmacy medical policy 422, RSV Immunoprophylaxis.

At this time, our medical and pharmacy benefit options are for Synagis only.

A new monoclonal antibody product, Beyfortus (Nirsevimab), will be available soon (anticipated to be in time for the 2023-24 RSV season). We expect that Beyfortus will replace Synagis for all indications and that it will be indicated for all infants within a certain age range. Look for more information about this product as we learn more about its availability.
