Is Repatha an allowable substitution for a Statin Medication? 

Repatha (evolocumab) is not a statin but some patients may use it along with a statin when their LDL remains high. If a patient is taking Repatha along with a statin, then the statin medication counts for the statin component. However, Repatha (evolocumab) alone does not count for the statin medication or exception.
