including costs, side effects, etc. It may be a little different as Canadian coverage is not the same as the US but my employment benefits cover 80% of the drug costs and then I’ve manage to have the other 20% covered as well. I consider myself very lucky!
I am new to this forum, and have just started Ofev. I am on medicare with plan B supplement in the US and the copay for me is $2800 for the first month and $500 thereafter except for the “doughnut hole”. I assume it will be about $2800 or more for that time. I have decided to pull the money from my life savings to pay for it as my income is to high to receive help from any of the foundations or the MFG, even being retired. I am waiting to see how bad the side effects are. So far, so good.
