my cost at duke univ. hospitals is 20,850.00 per infusion. the cost for facility is 662.00
when i mentioned this to my neuro at duke, he said that his understanding was that tysabri cost around 40k per year.

i am getting my 4th infusion right now and typing with one hand. another day, another 20k

I would like someone to please justify this ludicrous charge for a drug that has about 40% efficacy!!!
