Hi, My Gi doctor office sent me RemiStart form. Has anyone every use this to help pay for remicade? Also I am
thinking about switching to another Gi doctor in the group. I don't think my Gi doctor has his best intrest in my health anymore. I think his intrest's are in his money now. He was a good doctor.

Hi,

I use RemiStart to help pay for my son's Remicade treatments.  It has been great!  Our insurance isn't good, so we would have had to pay almost $700 for each treatment.  Now the RemiStart pays for $400 of that cost, and paid $800 when he had double Remicade (our bill was over $1000).  I think they have you pay $100 or $150, and then they pay up to $400 to cover the rest.  It is really easy to use.  They send you a debit card.  Then you send them the EOB from your insurance company and then they will send you a letter telling you how much money they have put on your debit card.  It is a regular debit card, so you can use it to pay your Remicade bill or anything else you want.

The only bad thing was that I didn't sign my son up right away for the program and it is not retroactive.  So his first two treatments were not covered.  They will cover any treatments within 2 weeks of when you register for the program, so you should sign up right away.

Hope this helps!

Nancy (son Ben,14, dx 3/06; Remicade, Asacol, Multi-vitamin)

I have tried several groups that help people pay for remicade. They are always booked to their limit so I dont get any help. Hope you have better luck.
If we would read the secret history of our enemies,we would find in each mans life sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility.

Hi Teddy,

I really hope the RemiStart helps you!  It is so frustrating.  I feel Remicade is helping me already and I am looking into programs to help me pay for it.

Take care and I wish you the best!
