Looking to move to the USA - UK Rebif User

Postby saragg » Tue Dec 17, 2013 10:20 am

Hi

My partner is looking to move to the USA (Colorado) and I would like to go with him - but the cost of Rebif looks like it will be $5k per month.

Does anyone have any experience of this?

I have used Rebif for 7 years and have not relapsed since, so am nervous of having to stop taking it - so may have to stay here in the UK.

Any advice that anyone could offer would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Sara

It will not be 5k per month if you have health insurance. If you plan on working you could be able to get your health insurance through your company. Or the new Obama health plans. In any case I have been on Copaxone for ten years, changed jobs several times and my co-pay per month has never been more than 40 dollars.

agree with daverestonvirgina.

You will need health insurance, and the cost will be <<$5,000/month

As long as you check with the health insurance company first to make sure it's a preferred drug! My first choice of drug was "covered" - they paid $2000/month and wanted us to pay $4500/month. Obviously we picked a different drug with a $100 copay. I just wouldn't want that to happen to you!
