Many chronic health conditions require expensive medication for treatment just to allow for survival. Many would not have been able to access infusion treatments / other medications were it not for the financial assistance that has been provided by the drug companies themselves and other charitable organizations. Even with great health insurance including Medicare the patient is often responsible for 20% of the cost of a treatment or a copay for a medication.

If you are not able to afford your prescription medication for your health condition then please consult with your doctor’s office and they will be able to help you as well. It is a great idea to stay in contact with your prescribing doctor about anything regarding the medication or treatment.
Also, with open season coming up for the Healthcare Marketplace, you can always try to pick a healthcare plan that will cover more of your medication / treatment. Discuss with your healthcare provider and/or insurance broker.
Best of luck out there and I hope you can afford your medication!
