My Pharmacy told me the shots before coverage are about
$750 a shot. That means the initial dose of four would be $3,000.00 The second loading dose of two, another $1,500.00....then if you are on a regular script
...1 dose every 2 weeks would mean another 25 shots in the coming year or another $18,750.00...for a years total of $23,250.00. Thankfully my insurance is $50 every 90 days plus $50 for the loading dose. My dose is 2 shots every two weeks so my bill wthout insurance would be $42,000 for the year. In my mind $250.00 versus $42,000.00 is good thing.
