How much do you pay for Enbrel every month ? If you have coverage through work how much do you still pay for it? Is the Enbrel covered in the USA in any way, if you don't have a job? Can you buy health insurance from a company that covers for pre-existent conditions? I appreciate any comments! Thanks so much !
I don't know if Enbrel is covered in the U.S.A.
I know it certainly is covered here in Australia. Without the coverage i receive i simply wouldn't be having Enbrel at all. As it costs nearly $2000 for one months prescription. On DSP i pay just $5.60 per month. I know this probably doesn't help you but i just wanted to let you know that it is covered in Australia. I hope you find a solution to your coverage problem.
Can Anybody please tell me which private health insurance covers the Enbrel costs in Australia. I am moving to Melbourne next month (foreigner) and I require enbrel to treat my chronic plaque psoriasis. I heard about a subsidising program. Any information highly appreciated.
Diane, here is the link to find out if you can qualify for the Enbrel Support Program & to enroll for it as well: www.enbrel.com/ENBREL-support-card-program.jspx
When I was on Enbrel I also went through the Support Program. I hope this helps.
Can you please tell me more about the 10 dollars/month Enbrel card? What do you need in order to qualify for it? Thanks so much everyone for all the feedback and if you can tell me more about this topic, please do so !
I have insurance, also qualified for Enbrel assistance card, so my first 6 months were free, now I pay 10 per month. They said I can reload the card once a year... And it is about that time, do I am hoping for 6 months free again :-)
This is a controversial topic, and many Americans are fed up with the stranglehold the insurance companies have on the people. These companies have allowed our entire healthcare system to escape the natural cost controls of the free market economy. Most Americans cannot afford to pay cash for care, and many have to go to Canada to get their medications. Since health is not a protected freedom of our Constitution, access to coverage varies wildly from one state to the next. In my state, there is no health insurance available outside of one's employment or unless he or she is completely disabled and indigent. The insurance companies have amassed enough wealth to be able to afford an indecent relationship within our political system (let me tell you how I really feel--lol), and so the modest reforms that have been made have not resulted in any significant change at this point.
When I had insurance I paid nothing the first year and then after that I only paid 10 dollars a month. They have the EnbrelAssist card that covers a huge chunk of the copay. I believe they will pay up to 750 a month for you. Now that I am no longer working and have no insurance I qualify the the Encourage Foundation, which is part of the makers of Enbrel, for free meds each month. They also have the section for the uninsured. Alot of options. I am going onto Social Security now and I have no clue what will happen with the Medicare. I applied for my Enbrel for free again since I still no longer have insurance for now.
