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.

Larry, check with the Bristol Myers Squibb copay assist program to see if you qualify for copay assist. The Speciality pharmacy where you order the Revlimid will help you go down the list of non profits that you might qualify for. Love Donna. Also we all have to make sure we get insurance with a maximum out of pocket limit for drugs
