I was prescribed Entocort and when I went to pick up the prescription they told me that after my insurance allowance the medication was $686.00 for a one month supply (90 pills). Before insurance it was $10013.00. How can anyone afford that?
There is no generic for Entocort, so your alternative would be prednisone.
But I think you are being overcharged. Although my insurance must cover a lot more than yours, Safeway charges about 3,000 full price for 270 pills, which is a three month supply. Or at least they did when I refilled it two months ago. I don't pay that much, but if I didn't have insurance, that is what they would charge for 270 Entocort EC pills. So check around to see why it is costing you so much more.
I have No insurance and to take 3 a day it costs Over $800.00 a month so for now I had to take my self off and pray I stay in remmission I can not afford it ... I have never heard of it costing Over 10,0000 dollars .. The Cheaper Option is predisone but it bloats you and you gain weight but if desperate and really sick It runs like $10.00 a month ... so far I have stayed in remission ..
