My brother is on disability and his Medicaid doesn't cover much on this drug. It is the only thing that gives him the relief he needs to sleep, etc. He cannot afford the $500/month needed. Is there a foundation or something to help people like him?

You can contact Enbrel at enbrel.com, and they will find foundations for you. My son is 15 and has psoriasis, the dermatologist said that he would need 2 injections per week, for the rest of his life. Enbrel found a way for me to get the medication with no copay, and the monthly prescription is 3900.00

Psyched gave you a great tip! Most pharmaceutical companies have a patient assistance program. Your brother may have to have his doctor fill out the paper work, but it's well worth the effort. He can also get a big discount for transferring his prescriptions to another pharmacy. Call around to several different ones to find out where the best deals are. After all, they have to compete for customers too. I think it's CVS who offers a $25 in-store coupon for each prescription you transfer, plus a discount off the meds too. It's def worth checking out. There's also www.needymeds.com. Good luck to you and hope you all have a happy new year,
