I live in TX, but I work for a small CA company, and end up with a BC/BS small company CA plan. I take Avonex, and under BC/BS, now I pay $402 for 4 syringes. I would love to hear if someone on BC/BS gets this "self injectable " for less out of pocket cost. For me this is a fancy monthly car payment, without the car!
Sounds like you can relate to this in a big way.
I can't help with any other options however. I would love to hear if you find an alternative that gets your cost down. I really wish that BC/BS would just agree that this is like any other prescription, but of course we know it's not. It's just that others on different plans seem to be able to acquire this for just a typical co-pay.
How you and I would appreciate a financial break!!! Good luck.
