...Ok...so my best friend, just heard from her dr's office today, and they are telling her that the tysabri treatments are $4000.00 a month, now what is going on with that?..... (from Peggy, who's trying to help her friend)
I also posted a message on the Cost thread about getting the same "revised" price of $4,000.00 from my neuro's office. $4K per infusion sounds crazy (is crazy), but it is not a mistake, believe me!
... turns out the doc was mistaken about the cost....he'd quoted the $1,800 per treatment figure after I'd mentioned to him that I'd heard Tysabri would cost over $2,000-$2,500 per month. I remember he sounded a little frustrated that such "rumors" were rampant.....I finally got the call from his office...the Tysabri was authorized by my insurance.
Bad news; it's being billed at $4,000.00 per treatment , not $1,800.00! (from me, flora)
OK, so I know I'm not the only one who's been quoted a firm price of $4,000 per Tysabri infusion . Anyone else so far, besides Peggy's friend and myself?
I can't quite get over the fact that billing $4K per infusion means that, after paying $1,800.00 for the Tysabri itself, the doc is charging $2,200.00 for the procedure itself.
That must be one heck of an IV! I mean, for $2,200.00 do they fly you to Vegas for the infusion? Will there be celebrities, champagne and strippers? Sheesh!
I declined, by the way. (I take the ridiculous price as a sign that I should be on LDN, which is what I really wanted in the first place.)
