Committed to ensuring affordable access to Makena
We believe patients should be able to focus more on their pregnancy than the cost of their medication. To support that, AMAG Pharmaceuticals is committed to ensuring affordable access to Makena. We proactively screen and offer eligible patients financial assistance with no income caps.
*Each patient’s eligibility is evaluated on an individual basis. To be eligible, patients must meet the FDA-approved indication (pregnant with a single baby with a history of singleton spontaneous preterm birth <37 weeks)1. In compliance with federal regulations, patients insured by a government-funded program (eg, Medicaid, TRICARE, etc.) are not eligible.
If your patient feels her out-of-pocket cost is too high, she should call Makena Care Connection to see if she is eligible for financial assistance*
“I was so happy that I was approved for financial assistance. I feel very thankful that my family and I had this opportunity with the Makena Care Connection.”
– Nalleli, Makena mom
Provides injection support to patients in the comfort of their home
We can help coordinate Makena injections through a home healthcare organization. Once approved by insurance, moms prescribed Makena can choose to receive their injections by a healthcare professional in the comfort of their home or another location that’s convenient for them.
Benefits may include:
Encourages adherence to the weekly injection schedule
We understand that moms receiving Makena injections may need some encouragement and support to stick to their weekly injection schedule, and we want to help. This free service offers educational and adherence support to encourage women to make Makena part of their pregnancy and take an active role in their health.
A level of personalized support you and your patients can expect:
“Knowing she was just a phone call away gave me peace of mind. I appreciated feeling like I had someone supporting me every step of the way.”
–Shanise, Makena mom

Makena (hydroxyprogesterone caproate injection) is a progestin indicated to reduce the risk of preterm birth in women with a singleton pregnancy who have a history of singleton spontaneous preterm birth. The effectiveness of Makena is based on improvement in the proportion of women who delivered <37 weeks of gestation. There are no controlled trials demonstrating a direct clinical benefit, such as improvement in neonatal mortality and morbidity.
Limitation of use: While there are many risk factors for preterm birth, safety and efficacy of Makena has been demonstrated only in women with a prior spontaneous singleton preterm birth. It is not intended for use in women with multiple gestations or other risk factors for preterm birth.
