My insurance probably won't cover thyrogen shots for my year scan and thyroglobulin test. Does anyone know how much 3 shots would cost me??? I don't look forward to going off my meds for several weeks since it took me 7-8 months to finally feel good after my tt. I was on 8 different synthroid doses until we got it right. I'm on 250mcg. I would rather pay for them then be miserable. Maybe President Bush's money he's sending us will come in time:)
It's worth fighting over. Mine were actually $500 a piece for a total of $1000. Might want to tell the insurance company it's cheaper to do the thyrogen shots than deal with a crazed thyroid patient going through hypohell (again)
