Rituxan Copay Assistance?

Last year I had to go to my wallet for $4,700 for my Rituxan treatment. This year, thanks in part to the Affordable Care Act, my costs will rise 40%, to $6,600.

Laura, aka Lulu54 mentioned that there may be copay assistance programs available. I went to the Genentech website and found a wealth of information about assisatance for payments associated with many conditions. None of these were MS. I have a call in to them. but sustpecty that since Rituxan for MS is off label there is no program at Genentech. Does anyone know of any fiancial assistance programs for Rituxan?

Thanks, Kyle

Kyle, have you called the MS navigators  at the NMSS?  They emailed a long list of companies that may be able to help.   Some are not drug specific,  they help people with chronic diseases get expensive meds paid for.
