Hi - I Am A 65 Year Old Pretty Long Term Survivor Of Multiple Myeloma. I Am Looking For Info Regarding Cost Of Revlimid

Hi - I Am A 65 Year Old Pretty Long Term Survivor Of Multiple Myeloma. I Am Looking For Info Regarding Cost Of Revlimid

I am about to go on Medicare and was SHOCKED at the cost of the copay for Revlimid which I am starting as maintenance therapy. Even with the supplemental prescription coverage, it is obscenely expensive. Why is there no generic available? I am wondering how others deal with this? We don't qualify for the Leukemia/Lymphoma Society assistance program. Anything else out there? Thank you.

I nearly fell over with shock when I got the bill for my first dose of Revlimid $2800 , my social worker at the hospital found me a grant through the cancer society for about $11,000 which covered the first years treatment.

Try Walgreens. My doctor sent the prescription and they got me a grant. Might be worth a try.Prescription was for Revlamid. I am on medicare and grant picked up the balance.

Hi, talk to the Social Worker where you are being treated, they should be able to guide you through the sources that are available to you.
