Aldara cost with insurance

Common Questions and Answers about Aldara cost with insurance


Avatar m tn Eventually I had them checked, they were warts and I had them removed and was put on Aldara. I used what my dermatologist gave me but I had no insurance so I never actually filled the prescription. The warts came back months later. I thought about the laser surgery which would be very expensive but the doctor put me back on the Aldara, which I filled this time, hoping it would take care of the problem.
Avatar m tn I'm going to stop the Aldara for a while and see if that changes anything and look to deal with the warts another way, I suppose. Will they just go away on their own? Thanks again!
Avatar n tn If you visit your local health department STD clinic, you likely will be treated at no cost with liquid nitrogen or podphyllin, or the clinic may request a donation of a few dollars. Depending on the extent of your warts, you might have to return to the clinic several times, at little or no cost each time.
Avatar n tn I will not have insurance for 2 months. A doctors visit for this would run $350 plus the cost of tests, and Aldara is $325 for a 12 day supply. Personally I think this is NOT a big deal/problem, since I had a normal pap last year and the non cancerous HPV strain. I just want some advice/reassurance that it will be ok to wait this out if I don't have any other unusual symptoms or break outs, and start taking better care of my eating and sleeping habits. Thank you all in advance!
Avatar m tn They no longer offer cryotherapy at Planned Parenthood so electrocauterization or aldara is my only other alternative and I've already tried aldara and had no luck. I would really like to see a doctor or dermatologist but could anyone tell me an estimate of how much cryotheraphy would probably costs without insurance? Any of your experiences or doctor recommendations if in LA would be appreciated as well, thanks.
Avatar n tn My pediatrician said the literature revealed that it is about a 50% cure rate. It cost about $400 outright. Our insurance charged us $141. My older son contracted it. It passed to me. Now my toddler has a bad case of it, over 50 moluscum. The q-tip made it spread.
Avatar f tn Hello doctors, I must express my deepest thanks for this forum which provides a voice of reason in what otherwise is a sea of misinformation on the internet about STDs. I imagine you may sometimes feel you are asked repetitive questions, but the reassurance you provide in your answers is truly life changing. I have read almost all posts pertaining to HPV and have a few questions specific to my case. I was diagnosed with two genital warts in my perineum area.
Avatar m tn She then refilled my prescription for Aldara, which I know works when applied properly. However, I have no insurance and the medication for one month is 560.00 which is worth it for two months if it kills the warts forever and the virus causing them. I found, online, a medication called Wartrol which is supposed to attack the virus and show results within 48 hours and is significantly cheaper. Could you please check out this link and let me know what you would advise me to do?
Avatar n tn Your doc can treat them by freezing them, or can prescribe aldara for you to treat them at home. If you don't have insurance, you can try a Planned Parenthood or std clinic - they can freeze them for a low cost. Most molluscum sores don't last nearly 3 years, though they can. For some good info on this, check www.ashastd.
Avatar m tn Aldara is $40 with my insurance, the generic is $10...I think without insurance it is over $200 but not sure. I did acid treatment once a week for 4 weeks and that was my $25 co pay each time. I don't know the costs of any of the other treatments and all insurance is different. So far HPV has cost me $200, but if I didn't have insurance it would have been a lot more. I don't know any natural treatment. I am not drinking, don't smoke, I eat very healthy and take vit's.
Avatar m tn I've read that the virus is supposed to work itself out of the body after as long as a year for some people, though that's more rare. I've been with this now for at least 10 months, it seems, and have gone through a few rounds of treatment, and am currently using Aldara on a bunch of visible warts. My question is, at some point, will these warts just go away on their own? Is the Aldara or some other method of treatment the only way to eradicate them?
Avatar n tn In any case, I would shop around if you do decide to get the vaccine. It shouldn't cost $2000. Your doctor's cost is probably around $300-$400. My understanding was that was total but even if it's not, the mark-up to get to $2000 seems too high. Good Luck!
Avatar n tn You can try aldara at home, but its prescription, and expensive, so if you don't have insurance, it might be cost-prohibitive. MCV can linger, unfortunately. The average time to clear the virus is 2 years. Check for more info.
Avatar n tn He told me that I had genital warts both internally and externally and that I would have to have them burned off, and he would call me to give me the cost of the procedure since I didn't have insurance, and could get it a bit cheaper. That Monday, I was called and told that it would be about $3500 or $3700 and I'm assuming that since they called the hospital to get the rate, that it was going to be done there.
Avatar n tn Hello, Doctor My question is regarding what I fear might be genital warts and, if so, how I deal with it. First, I'm a 32 year-old male. I am about as far from promiscuous or sexually active as you can imagine; my last sexual partner was over 3 years ago. Recently, I've noticed a small, very small, patch of odd-looking skin just above the shaft of my penis that was obscured by pubic hair. It's the same color as the surrounding skin and, honestly, can be, and has been, easily overlooked.
Avatar n tn I haven't started on it yet because I didn't have money for a prescription, nor insurance to cover it.. I didn't want to start with the starter packs, stop when I ran out, and then start again. As a related question.. I still have that prescription, originally written out on 3/15/06 (yes, I know, it's a while back - life kinda got in the way for a while). Do you know if that prescription would still be valid, or do they have an inherent "expiration" after a period of time, etc?
Avatar n tn I hope it works. I dont have insurance and it cost me $228! I feel horrible because I think I might have passed it on to my boyfriend. He hasn't broke out yet but we were sleeping together before I broke out.
Avatar n tn Or work out a payment plan with a private doctor. Here's some links for private insurance plans in case anyone else is interested. Always best to be prepared.
Avatar m tn She says the places are definately hpv warts.... I don't have any insurance, so I am sure that the freezing would cost too much to even try. Does the cream work well?
Avatar m tn I was recently diagnosed with HPV from my Pap smear, and upon learning this I did the ACV test at home. About a year ago, I found a smooth bump on my perinium and had it checked out immediately and asked to be tested for all STD's . I was told by two different Dr.s that it was a skin tag, and I continued to ask about it at every appt after. This seemed so odd to me because it seemed to come out of nowhere, and I don't usually get skin tags but I trusted their diagnosis.
1655600 tn?1302165828 With insurance ( i have Blue Cross) How much did Aldara cost you? Ive read its extremely expensive. Also the doc said that i better wait and see if the warts go away with the acid treatment alone before i start using Aldara. Not to use it over 8 weeks and that i should use it 3 times per week, before bed. The second drug he prescribed for later is Zyclara.. Have you heard of that? P.
Avatar f tn and about $10,000 in blood tests.. with health insurance probably it all cost the health system $100K And I have seen University level doctors that were clueless what to do.. Except adding TDF to ETV.. As for combo therapy yes, that is a novelty.. Even Dr.Gish is not doing it. And yes he does not have FibroScan either.
Avatar n tn I went to the dermatologist twice with no remedies to cure my flat warts. All he did was prescribed Retrieve and aldara cream which didn't work. I did many research online and didn't really find anything that worked. Tried Thuja cream but that's hopeless. In Sydney, there's no Thuja tablets because it's not available in retail stores. I don't think this is safe if it's not recommended to be sold in stores. Anyways, I managed to go to my last resort, which was drink chinese herbal medicine.
Avatar f tn I contacted HPV even though my partner always used a condom. I've only been with three people, so you can imagine my shock when I found out. I had to undergoe a LEEP procedure last March to remove my precancerous cells, and thankfully, my paps have been clear since then. I was wondering, however, if there is a link between HPV and acne breakouts. Shortly before I was diagnosed my face developed several cystic pimples and blackheads/whiteheads. I have never had a problem with acne before.
Avatar n tn My last one showed me as having VIN2 which my oncologist/gyno wanted me to use ALDARA Cream for 3 months, I tried it but i couldnt function with all the side effects, So after much reading as much as i could find on HPV and VIN i started taking the supplement DIM, thought it was helping some but now I have the burning back again and am afraid I will have to go in and have another biopsy again. I hate this. How come so many of us never heard of this before.
Avatar n tn Well that's what I hope-related to some kind of yeast thing, and not HPV-which would mean I have to wait until it runs it's course with me. My doctor actually told me to stick with the gold bond if it works, but that's treating the symptoms...sigh. I just had a run of anti biotics after a surgery, wouldn't that take care of any kind of BI/yeast/uti??
Avatar m tn Hopefully it will be negative, and I'll pass you the results. If you are still in contact with the girl you had sex with, I would ask her if she had an outbreak or symptoms anywhere near your sexual encounter. While she could of had asymtomatic shedding, you're chances of contracting it are smaller if she didn't have any visible sores or physical symptoms. Do your best to try and relax (trust me I know this is hard to do) and not think too much about it.
Avatar n tn L-lysine is often taken to enhance calcium absorbtion and promote some help in fighting viruses. You were not specific on the symptoms you experience, but my guess is that when you exercise you don't drink water, or you sweat to excess. This will dehydrate you and you will lose salt and other minerals. You can experience shaking of the hands, visual disturbances, headaches, stomach aches, stitches in the sides, exhaustion, low grade temps and other unpleasant symptoms.
