I was always aware of my $45 co-pay for my medication, Rebif. I received a summary of my medical exenses from my insurance company and was shocked to see that the total cost of my MS medication is approximately, $3700/month. My mouth almost dropped. I truly feel blessed that I have insurance to help me out with this expense. I will gladly pay the $45 co-pay for an expense that huge. I knew it was expensive because there was a time period that I wasn't working and I knew I couldn't afford to pay for the medication out of my pocket. My mother told me that she would buy it for me and I investigated to see how much it would be. It was a bit much for her, but I don't think it was as expensive as it is now. I later learned that I could have been sponsored to receive assistance in getting my medication when I was unemployed. If needed, I'll know about that resource in the future.....good to know!
