Insurance plan cover monthly Tysabri infusion cost

Post by harshil223 » Wed Jun 03, 2015 10:54 am

Hello All

I have been diagnosed with RRMS and having monthly infusion of Tysabri since last two years.
I got to work in new project in USA starting from next month.
I have read about the high cost of Tysabri dose in USA, I am in UK where its covered by NHS.

Can anyone please let me know if
1) Can I obtain a insurance cover upon arrival to USA that reduces monthly cost of Tysabri?
2) Approx how much premium should I consider to avail such cover?
3) Is there any alternative way to reduce the cost of infusion?

Thanks for your responses in advance.

I recommend discussing your options with your doctor's office prior to coming 'to the US. It may prove to be excessively complicated to set things up once you're in the US.
