I only had nine months left to finish the two year regiment. Any suggestions? It cots 989.00 a month cannot afford that
I had to stop taking my Forteo because my insurance no longer will pay for it, any suggestions?
Added 27 Feb 2011:
I called the drug manufacture and they gave me a # to call on March 1st to try and get on a list to maybe qualify for 3000.00 and that would only be enough for three months.
Call Eli Lilley & ask them about it. Some of the drug companies help out patients when they cannot afford a drug they need. Also check with your doctor & pharmacy, they should know who does or doesn't. Good luck to you. Are you feeling any better? I've only been on for 3 months.
Sorry to hear that they can't help sooner or for longer, but don't give up! I have heard others in other forums (I'll try to find out who & hook you up)who knows how to get help for scripts. Keep after them! Even if you don't get the last six months, I would have to believe being on it for 18 months still has to have some benefit. Keep looking, & I'll try to find out which person it is that knows more about it. Good luck ... Mary
I know I am in your same situation, I am prescribed a medication and the insurance company refuses to pay ANY part of the bill, I know to some this might seem easy but 30 patches are $275 and I am suppose to use to patches at a time, I charge on a credit card but I can only do that so much and then it's due, this is a drug that they drug company still has the patent on and it cannot be produced by generic, I think we are both in a situation to where we at least need to check these companies out and see if they can't help us plan for long range care, I hope that we find out that they will assist you (and me) in finding a solution that may be of help, I wish you the very best of luck! please feel free to keep us posted
