Wow!! I'm not sure where you live, but I know I paid less than $250 WITHOUT insurance for Entocort (not sure if it was EC, this was 2 years ago) at the Walmart pharmacy.
I did some research and Entocort is produced by AstroZeneca. If you live in the US you can go to www.astrazeneca-us.com and click on the Help Affording your Medicine link on the left. You can see if you qualify.
By the way, most pharmaceutical companies have a medication assistance program for those with no or not very good insurance. There are some companies out there whom you can pay a fee too to get you signed up for this service, but you can do it yourself and save some money.
Dx'd w/ Crohn's in 1979 at age 14. Bad flare 2008 but no health insurance so I dealt with it. Colonoscopy in July 2009 caused a perforated colon, emergency bowel resection. 2 fistula's, perianal and perivaginal.
Dr. wants to try Humira...STILL waiting on that! Not sure what is taking so long...
Currently just take a probiotic, a multivitamin, calcium, magnesium, and fish oil. I also take Tramadol 50 mg and Klonopin (for anxiety) as needed.
Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance!
