The Derm I went to pretty much insisted on the Otezla
Check the otezla website. Many pharmaceutical companies have assistance programs for patients who don't have insurance or who have insurance that refuses coverage of their product.
Your out of pocket expense will depend on your insurance. Most likely your Dr will need to get the medicine pre authorized (explain to your insurance why Otezla is best for your condition). They will then either approve or deny it. Once approved it will depend on what "tier" it falls into for your copay cost. Otezla Support has copay assistance that will help pay, up to a certain yearly amount, the amount that is not covered by insurance. Best thing to do is find out from your insurance what your copay would be once approved and go from there.
