This just frustrates me so much. Why? Why does medication cost so much? It is absurd!! Because it cost 10k for 1 shot!! I think not! Just ridiculous. Greed. Its the bottom line. Empathy is almost non exisitant. Its sad.

True Mich and its a money making scheme. We are sufferers and we deserve better.

Coworker has a bio injection 1 per month. Free discount card brings cost to zero $. Has not worked, as yet. She doesn't know when the card will stop. MRSRP is $ 3,000 per injection. Talk to drug company

If a cure for p was ever found alot of companies would go broke,from lotions to potions everything cost alot considering they know were desperate for relief we do get taken advantage of.

Hi Sue just a question. Are you with private health cover?
20 Jul 07:17
No but pay for private specialist,no choice ,costs Everytime I go ,but he prescribes me what I need tenfold,do have a healthcare card so a script that costs hundreds I get for about 10 dollars ,if I didn't have that I'd be cactus.

My local hosi doesn't treat psoriorias,the one that does it way to far to travel to , guessing as a outpatient treatment would be free there

Sue do you also have or had gout? I have it too but control it with apple cider vinegar or with a smoothie 5o/50 pineapple and strawberry. What meds were you on that caused gout?

This issue about cost is very difficult, and it differs so much between different countries! I'm not sure how I would cope without the NHS...

Here in the US I have health coverage through my employer and it covers the biologics though there was some pre-reqs to get approved (step therapy). Once approved the insurance covers it but there is still a large co-pay. The drug co. has a co-pay assistance card that covers the co-pay (you have to sign up with them) and that brings the cost to $0 for me. Have been taking it for >10 years and I'm scared to do the math to see how much $ it has cost my insurance company over the years..
