Until recently, I had both traditional medicare, and a full secondary in a full secondary insurance that was provided through my husband's employer. Then, my husband and I found out how much his employer (a small business) was paying to have me on the plan... We were paying a portion of it, but his employer was paying close to $1200 per month- just for me. Our consciences just couldn't let it go on anymore, so we decided that I would get onto a MedAdvantage plan instead.
We got me the best one we could find, and I pay for it with my SSDI every month. But it still doesn't cover enough, and of course- Medicare's part D has a huge "donut hole". Add to that the fact that my copay for these meds would be about 33%- due to the formulary?? (I don't really understand why- or what that is) but it would end up costing me a lot of money every month. Tysabri is a part B expense, but I'm pretty sure I can't afford to pay for 20% of it every month either. So...
I am thinking about hyperbaric therapy. I know that the evidence supporting it's use is sketchy at best, but I also know that I can't do anything else. ( I don't know how much it costs though... )
Do any of you know anything about this? I need to have more knowledge, before I talk to my neurologist about this.
