I went to get my meds refilled. When I found out that my insurance will not cover the cost, I asked how much. When they told me the price, I said no thanks. I will suffer with my incontanence. Can I secure some help for this drug besides paying $550?
I know the price can be high for some of these medicines but you do have to realize that the drug companies invest a lot of money in research and development of some drugs, so they do have to cover their costs to some extent.
Try and contact the manufacturer of Sanctura ... they may have some sort of patient assistance program.
My father in law takes this medication and it is the only med that helps him with his symptoms. He has tried all the other bladder type meds and nothing works. Well we had some samples and coupon the first time he was prescribed it. For the refill the price jumped to around $500 for a month supply. His doctor said that when a pharm co 'invents' a med they register the formula so that no one else can make it. During this timeframe the price is through the roof and ins co's don't/can't cover it because of the price. Well now to the solution that May help you. His doctor told us that if the ins co doesn't pay for the meds then my father in law will need an operation. His doctor sent an appeal to the ins co in response to the decline letter for the med. In the appeal his doctor put that either the ins co needs to approve the meds or an operation. We recieved a letter about a week later stating that his ins co will now pay for the med.
