My husband carries my insurance at work. We are wondering what happens when or if he can retire! My infusion is around 18,000 dollars each month for 1 treatment!

I think they all suck when it comes to biologics. I started on Medicare this past April due to being on disability for MS. I have a supplement through United Healthcare and all they want you to take is methotrexate. They turn down biologics. I think if you get them to approve one it puts you in the catastrophic coverage level right away. I had great biologic coverage when I had private insurance. Unfortunately I can't afford $5,000+ a month for a biologic, and don't know anyone who can.

It's horrible isn't it! You almost cant retire anymore if you have one of these diseases just to cover the meds. So far, I am better off just buying the cheapest part D plan to avoid the penalty and keeping my individual exchange plan which I had before Medicare
