I have insurance ,it covers half. That leaves me paying over $2000.00 every month just for Copaxone. The other drugs cost another $400.00. This leaves me with a lot of year left when money runs out. Assistance Fund helped a year ago ,however they only help if you have know insurance. I think I was a mistake. Need help.
Have you tried calling Shared Solutions? They helped me out tremendously and credited my bank card $2000 with their co-pay assistance program. I believe they said that they help up to $2500 (maybe a little less).
Have you reached out-of-pocket on your insurance plan? I have and now the insurance company pays 100%. I don't know the type of insurance plan you have, but if you reach out-of-pocket, you shouldn't have to pay anymore.
I reach out-of-pocket quickly with the Copaxone. The Shared Solution people help with the co-pay assistance.
I will be a third voice here recommending that you talk to Shared Solutions (assuming you are in the US?). My copay would be over $100 per month, but they pay the difference to bring it down to $35. I never had to answer a single question to qualify for the help.
