How Much Does Reclast Cost

Daughter has very poor health insurance. She is 42 and has been given FOSAMAX because of bone loss ---she had a total hysterectoy at 34 and has been on no hormone replacement since. Curious as to how much it would cost out of pocket for once a year RECLAST

Answer

Hi debruno, welcome and thanks for your question. Sorry about your daughter having bone loss so young.

If you know where you can get this infusion, you can call the billing office and ask what the price would be without insurance. The only figures I have are from 2007, so the price probably has changed.

In 2007 the Reclast retail price was approximately $800.00, plus you have to add the cost of the infusion on to that so that would make it more. You can also call 1-866-RECLAST and ask this question to get a more up-to-date price.

Novartis also has a patient assistance program for those without insurance and you can check that out at 1-800-245-5356 or log on to www.pap.novartis.com for more information. While your at the Novartis site, click on the Home page and see the link for "Looking for an infusion Center Near You" and you can find out the closest center in your zip code.

Good luck and if you have any other questions just re-post.
