Always check with the company. Most of them have help paying for meds!

Agreed. My wife had to do all the paperwork for the doctor but got it approved. Cosentyx is over $6500 for 2 shots and the Otezla is over $4600 for 1 month. Do your research for I've been fighting respiratory infections since being on them and hospitalized once. Still trying to figure out exactly what is going on. Pain is better after 5 months, but along with respiratory I have terrible psoriasis and blisters on both entire feet when I get below 10mg Prednisone.

Prednisone, but we can't stay on it and doctor's won't prescribe without them justification and our psoriasis isn't reason enough for them. Sorry but I'm tired of pain fighting PA's, doctor's. They can't handle that I have so many diagnosed problems that are only continuing to worsen. And with age. My doctor's and their NP's,PASSOVER treat my wife and like dirt and the hoops they continuously make us go through but yet we can't fight or do anything about it without getting told I'm not welcome and we're the rude ones. They charge over $1200 for every UA they do. Due the math and amount of patients they see daily. My back brace I got was charged over $2200, Medicare paid over $1400. It's insane.
