Insurance Problems

Postby ladybates » Sat Jan 24, 2009 8:55 am

My husband was recently diagnosed with MS and his doctor prescribed Avonex for him. I received a phone call yesterday stating that our copay is $750. OMG, there's no way in hell we can pay that. That's injections for only one month. How do they expect people to be able to do that? They told me that there are companies that assist with the copay's but it's based on income. Believe it or not they said that my husband and I make too much money (wow I can't tell).

Has anyone else experienced this same problem? If so, what did you do?

I hope this will help you. I called MS Active Source, they have a payment assistance program. My copay is $100 with HN but Active Source is picking up $90 and now my copay is $10 to the pharmacy.

Please check this program out and good luck!!
