Cost Of Treatment

Cost Of Treatment

Hello, I have Medicare drug policy.
I have a grant to help pay for co-pay for Pomalyst the co-pay has been $972.00 per month, Cigna has just taken over my drug company, the co-pay effective January 2022 will be 3888.00 per month.
I’ve been using the grant to pay $972.00. The grant
Which was 11,000, half is gone, can’t reapply until August 2022. Any suggestions, would be appreciated . Thank you.

Try going straight to the drug manufacturer. Also, tell your Doctor. One more avenue is to contact a hospital attached to a University. They may be able to help (grants, a clinic, etc.). I was on Revlimid for a $100 copay (it was $14,000 for 28 days) which not only forces me to keep working but live in fear of losing my job. That's what caused me to see what my options were in case I lost my job. Be well.

Roseanne, Have you tried Celgene - they make Pomalyst, Many times they will reduce the co pay. Is your grant from the LLS -Leukemia,Lymphoma Society - they also do Myeloma. They give annual grants for $11,000. There are others that have financial assistance programs. Also, call the American Cancer Society. Call your Hospital Social Service or the Financial Service Departments for other ideas. Your Pharmacy may have ideas too. Good luck finding help. Have a good Evening! Love, Marcia 🌼🌸🌻

Please look online for help. The social worker at your doctor's office should have a list of non profits that can help. Healthwell Foundation, Leukemia and Lymphoma society and others. Who can pay that??? There is a maximum out if pocket limit for drugs right??
