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.

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.

Rosey @sue2023

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..
