cml: what covers most costs :(medicare, medigap, part d program cost about $500 a month) or Medicare advantage program which does not require monthly fees but fees for every service with part d?
I am allergic to Benadryl as well, they give me Zyrtec instead
I am allergic to Benadryl. They have gave me creams and stuff. But none of it really works.
Tammy are you allowed to take Benadryl with you medicine? Might help control the rash! Might want to ask your Dr
I am on Tasigna. I also have medicare. Novartis pays 100% of my prescription. My oncologist registered me for a grant. I think it would be like $5000.00 if Novartis didn’t cover. My only side effect is a rash all over my body. They treat the rash because the Tasigna makes my numbers so good.
I’m taking Tasigna for my CML and my copay with private insurance is $600 per refill. Novartis has a program where they pay $15,000 per year to a patient with PI. So far I haven’t paid anything and I’ve been on it for over 8 weeks now. But they also have other programs for patients without health insurance or with Medicare. I don’t know what they offer but I’m guessing most drug companies will will offer some subsidies to offset the costs. Hope that helps.
