What Is The Estimated Cost For One Rituxan Infusion Eack Week!

Answer

Hi Yen,

The cost of a Rituxan infusion depends upon your insurance coverage and the amount the hospital charges for additional cost beyond the medication itself.

Of my six infusions so far (three complete rounds of treatment), the amount charged by the hospital (I went to two different ones) ranged from $11,288 to $18,544. The amount which my insurance negotiated to pay ranged from $10,275 to $11,996.

The portion which my insurance paid for the Rituxan itself was consistently around $9,850. The average cost of one complete round of treatment (two infusions) was $22,516.

If you are using Rituxan to treatment your RA, there are two types of assistance programs made available by Genentech.
