Hi Larry5. I'm not sure how it works for someone with Medicare (I have private insurance) but check with the drug manufacturer for copay assistance. Also, your Dr office may have a coordinator to help you with this. Good luck!

Kaiser patients may not have to pay. My friend has Kaiser and they cover all medications. I encourage all of you to call The Bristol Myers Squibb Patient assistance program . Apply its is free if you make less than 180k per year. Do mot use medicare part D . I also get my other medications through North west Pharmacy in Canada. The cost of Eliquis etc is cheaperI don't use my Part D so I pay a low fee of $8.00 per month to avoid the penalty

I was able to get a grant that paid the full cost of Revlimid.

There are assistance programs and grants you can apply for and they help with the Revlimid costs. I talked to Bristol Myers Squibb who make Revlimid and they will provide you a list of foundations as well as their program.
