The cost of Enbrel & the possibility to get off in the future
I am planning to start Enbrel shots two times a week soon. When I saw the cost of the medicine yesterday, I could not believe it. Luckily my husband is not retired yet (he is close to the age). I only need to pay $20 co-pay. For people don't have a good coverage, how could they afford. The listed retail price is $683.65! . If I have to take this medicine the rest of my life, it will be a big burden for sure. I would like to know whether medicare would cover any.
Is there any chance to get off the medicine in the future if I get better? I know right now I do need to take some medicine to help me get off Prednisone.
