Reimbursement Recommendations

Macitentan and Tadalafil (Opsynvi)

Published January 7, 2022

Key Messages

  • CADTH recommends that Opsynvi should be reimbursed by public drug plans for the long-term treatment of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH; WHO Group 1) to reduce morbidity in patients in WHO functional class (FC) II or III whose PAH is idiopathic, heritable, or associated with connective tissue disease or congenital heart disease if certain conditions are met.
  • Opsynvi should only be covered for patients who are currently treated simultaneously with stable doses of macitentan 10 mg and tadalafil 40 mg as separate tablets.
  • Opsynvi should only be reimbursed if prescribed by a specialist with expertise in managing and treating patients with PAH and if the price of Opsynvi is negotiated to ensure cost savings in comparison with separate macitentan and tadalafil tablets.
