    I am struggling to pay for my health insurance, because of crohn’s disease my remicade treatments are over $25,000 every 8 weeks. I am grateful to being doing so well after my surgery that saved my life back in December 2011 . Now my monthly health insurance is $1,233.69 a month with a deductable of over $4,000 . It is an ongoing issue that will never end. I am feeling well although the health insurance will make me sick. Is there any research that would help me pay for the remicade treatments? 6 times a year

    Have you not been enrolled in Jansen Carepath program? If you are not on Medicare or Medicare you are elidgeable. It is very easy. Your Infusion office wherever your receive your meds should know and enroll every patient that is elidgeable. The program will reimburse $20,000 of your out of pocket expenses. you will be given a “debit card” that you use at your Infusion center to pay any balance. Once Jansen has your EOB they will load any out of pocket expense on that card. If you have your infusion closest to the beginning of the year you will meet your deductable. Jansen then will load the card for you to pay your bill. It is important for the billing office to correctly submit your bill. Only the drug is covered so they must first bill the Remicade then the other charges. This will insure you get the most out of the program and you can pay the Infusion costs with the card. Good luck. I am an Infusion nurse and we enroll every one of our patients in the program.
