Private health coverage for ampyra in Australia?

I have been taking ampyra (called fampyra in Australia) since it has been available in this country in October 2011. It is costly and I have been trying to get my health fund (HCF) to recognise this medication so I can make a claim and get some reimbursement for the cost. HCF still has not given me any answer.

Ampyra? Don't think I need it?

Everytime I go to my Neuro, they test my walking time.
I don't feel like I have slowed at all. But he wants me to start taking this stuff. They delivered it today. With all the kidney warnings on here I am wondering if I should take it? I mean, the Rebif is supposedly bad enough on your kidneys, now I am going to strain them even more with this stuff?

Anybody have Anthem PPO who is taking Ampyra? How much is it costing you?

Id like to give it a try but I can't get an answer of how much it will cost. I was told my co-pay is 50% of the allowed rate but they won't tell me the allowed rate!

Ampyra Vs Compounded 4-AP?

Has anyone tried both? and therefore could give their opinion on the differences? /:)

I know for me I think I paid $65 for 100 10mg tablets of compounded 4-AP a few years ago, and I think the monthly cost of Ampyra here in Australia is somewhere in the $2000 ball park. :-O

Script process

My neuro suggested I try Ampyra and started the prescription process which is a real ordeal. I have to wait for a phone call, then call the compounding pharmacy, then call the other number back plus wait for insurance approval then they mail it to me. Is it worth taking or should I forget about it?
