Title: Dealing with costs of MS treatment
Post by: agate on December 11, 2018, 03:09:37 pm
The disease-modifying drugs aren't cheap. This article from WebMD discusses some of the issues around the costs borne by the patient, with suggestions on ways of reducing them--"Chronically Ill, Traumatically Billed: The $123,000 Medicine for MS." The title may be a little misleading. The $123,000 was charged by a hospital for two Ocrevus infusions.
