I have been on Otezla for 9 months and it has worked well, scalp psoriasis is gone. My Medicare Part D insurer (and the other 7 in my area) will not cover Otezla, insist that I must use biologics. I cannot afford to pay for Otezla on my own, and do not qualify for help. However, the biologics warn about using them when subject to infections. I suffer from chronic inflammation of the esophagus, and frequently have dry cough, sinus drainage

I'm so sorry shirl2. Before I was on Skyrizi doc had me on ketoconazole shampoo ( still use it) and Mometazone Furate solution to put on the plaques. It's a liquid you put on and it helped alot. Since getting on Skyrizi I no longer need it but ask your doc about it, it was cheap, under 20 bucks. I have mediocre commercial insurance.
You can get a zero copay card at 18444otela or online at otezla.com/copay ,you need to call after you set up online.
Not just the copay assistance. I could figure out a way to cover a copay, but without Medicare coverage (plan D), I would have to pay the entire amount, which is over $4,000 a month. Thanks, but the manufacturer does not have any assistance I can qualify for. I have stopped taking Otezla, and have gone back to the medicated shampoos and lotions. Will wait and see what happens now.
Because u r on Medicade they don't allow the copay assistance. But call the manufacturer, there maybe other ways they can help you.
Skyrizi not covered at all by Medicare Part D; same cost as Otezla. It also has a discount plan, but I cannot qualify for it. Using Clobetasol and Calcipotrene now, as well as T-gel and Psoriasis shampoos, but not working well. Also beginning to see spots on my arms and legs.
