AFREZZA® (pronounced uh-FREZZ-uh), approved in 2014 by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, is a rapid-acting inhaled insulin therapy indicated to improve glycemic control in adults with diabetes. Taken at the start of a meal using a specially designed inhaler, Afrezza dissolves rapidly upon inhalation to the deep lung and delivers insulin quickly to the bloodstream. Peak insulin levels are achieved within 12 to 15 minutes of use and help to control post-meal blood sugar spikes that affect HbA1C levels. More >
Update on Medicare/Medicaid Coverage
We recently learned that there was a lapse in Medicare and Medicaid coverage for Afrezza as a result of the transition to MannKind’s NDC codes. This issue impacted prescriptions last week and is anticipated to affect reported prescription counts only for the month of August. If you are on Medicare or Medicaid and having trouble filling your prescription for Afrezza, please contact MannKind Cares at 844-323-7399 (1-844-3Afrezza) for an interim solution. We expect that patients will not have any problem filling or refilling their Medicare or Medicaid prescription for Afrezza starting September 1, 2016. We apologize for this inconvenience.
