Avatar f tn m meeting w/my GI doctor at the end of May to discuss the new drugs for beginning treatment and was wondering if the doctor will discuss treatment costs with me or do I need to find this kind of information out myself? If I don't have prescription coverage or co-pays will all expenses be out of pocket or will it be applied to my deductible? I don't have the greatest insurance and don't know what the new meds will cost yet. Any and all information is appreciated!
Avatar m tn the speculation is these new meds will be at least double the cost of current treatment. and like everywhere It will remain to be seen what the insurance companies do .
1722607 tn?1335747858 I contacted my insurance company today to ask about the price of the meds for triple treatment. A 3 month supply of interferon, ribavirin, & Victrelis would cost $180.00 (so about $60 a month) I thought it was going to be a lot higher. But I forgot to ask about "rescue drugs". Not sure how that works and how much that would be. Any one have an idea?

July 2010 Early HIV treatment can save more children's lives Efforts worldwide on access to treatment for children with HIV have reached a new milestone, with 355 000 children receiving life-saving HIV treatment at the end of 2009, compared to 276 000 at the end of 2008; but many more lives could be saved if more infants started on medication earlier according to new recommendations from WHO.

Avatar m tn org/201009058318/health/new-israeli-treatment-kills-hiv-cells. Is this true news? What is the update on HIV research going on? Is it high cost medicine ?
1639131 tn?1510818631 My husband and I decided that it's a good idea for me to start sooner rather than later so that hopefully I can treat with in my deductable so my meds will be cheaper. I don't know yet how much it's gana be I just know it's really expensive.
Avatar f tn is thousands of dollars per month as you have heard. I had Blue Cross of California during treatment and my co-pay cost were similar to the prices you quoted.
936016 tn?1332765604 The rationale behind the research is that because so many people with HIV have been correctly identified in the San Francisco area, many more have been offered treatment. The aim of treatment with ARV's is to reduce an individual's viral load and thus his or her infectiousness.

Avatar m tn Most treatments for erectile dysfunction cost heavy and few Treatment Erectile Dysfunction actually deliver results. Know more about them.
Avatar f tn Treatment can cost upwards of U.S. $60,000/year if drugs, doctors, and procedures such as biopsy, U/S scans, etc. are factored in.
Avatar m tn I'm curious as to the cost of the current treatment drugs for someone without insurance. I've been told that I could expect 48 weeks of interferon/ribavirin. Also, how will the new drugs now add to this. My next appointment is July 11th, at which point I will need to have another CT scan, before knowing the possible treatment start date, drugs, and duration.

1722607 tn?1335747858 Do most insurance companies cover the cost of treatment? I have Care First Blue Cross. Anyone out there have the same insurance?
Avatar m tn m wondering what the total cost would be, as well as each drug. I will be starting treatment in about 6 weeks, or less, hopefully.

5079728 tn?1365549989 Can anyone give some insight on what treatment could cost? I realize Insurance is all different. I have a HMO through my work. Just trying to prepare myself. Bills are already coming in from all the testing going on.
Avatar m tn I saw this yesterday, printed it out and have read it several times. And I'll probably have to read it several more before I can completely wrap my head around it. The good news, as I see it, is the clarity it brings to the subject of actual cost of new medications to payers. "The $1000 dollar pill" or the "$1125 pill" has gotten so much play in the media. (Doctors aren't immune to this nor are many who work in the insurance industry.
