Tysabri $8,913??????

I just had my first Tysabri infusion a few weeks ago and I got a bill from the hospital. They are charging my insurance $8, 841 and they are charging me $415.00. Is this correct? From what I've read the cost is $2,500-$4500, this seems like a lot to charge per month. What are others being charged?

You may not realize it, but it's 100% true.

1. There are at least two people in this world
that you would die for.

2. At least 15 people in this world

MS and Insurance issues

Hello Everyone,
