... would the shot be any cheaper if we would take her the day after chemo for the shot?? because its 9000.00 each time she goes
I am being treated for Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma. (I just had my 2nd round on Wednesday). I am also prescribed Neupogen 24 hours after my chemo treatment.
You are correct in regards to the Neulasta Onpro system automatically releasing the medication.
The Onpro system is basically for convenience for the patient.
It is designed to automatically administer Neulasta the next day, so that you do not have to return to the doctor just for an injection.
I am not sure of the cost differential between the single injection and the Onpro delivery system... but I had asked my Cancer Center Team about the Onpro system and I was told that they would need prior approval from my insurance company.
Even though my insurance approved it, I opted to go to the Center for the injection. I live only 7 miles from my Cancer Center, so it is not an inconvenience for me to get there.
However, transportation can be a problem for many patients... making the Onpro system convenient for them.
I hope this helps. I will keep you & your mom in my prayers in our battle with illnesses.
