I can't say I've been having very much luck with remistart. They do cover all but $50, but that is just for the medication. It does not cover the cost of the office visit or the cost of administering the drug or the benedryl they give before hand or the cost of administering the benedryl. It does cover a lot, relativly speaking, but I am used to Humira and Cimzia's patient assistance programs that cover pretty much all of my out-of-pocket costs. Not to mention, the staff I've spoken with have always been extremely unhelpful.
My dose is being adjusted to the maximum this month, but if I don't see a change in my symptoms it's not going to be worth the trouble for me anymore.
I don't mean to be discouraging, I just haven't had the best experience with remistart. Good luck with whatever you do!
