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!

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!
