somewhere i read that if you cant pay for your remicade they have some sort of assistance program where you can still get it. my health insurance might be about to grop me and if that happens--- no cade for me. im not sure if there really is a program like this but i thought i read about it.
thanks

Not sure about the assistance program you are talking about btu I would check out this site to make sure of your rights. Check out this site...
http://www.advocacyforpatients.org/index.php . Jennifer Jaff is the lady that created this non-profit organization and it can answer a lot of questions. She also has Crohn's disease so she knows what we go through. She also emails back really quickly.

I know that Montell Williams has a drug assistance program for Remicade.When i was first put on it my insurance denied it because i sent it through as a prescription so my doctor then sent it through as a drs appt with treatment and now all i pay is my 20 copay.So you may check into that.Also if you go to remicade's website i believe that they have an assistance website listed> :-) :-)

Yes I received assistance for remicade.  Allthough, it was back in 2002 & I can't remember the name of the group.  I had insurance at the time & they still helped!  I will look around today in my records & see if I can find the info for you.  Good luck.

Dx with CD 1987, 3 resections, 3 abcess sx, OA back & hips, bulging disk, Major depression/anxiety, kidney stones & sx to remove, now 44 yrs old.  Still trying to figure this disease out & of course all the little extra complications that come with this rollarcoaster of a life with CD. 
 
Meds:  Hurmira every other week 40 mg, Imuran .75 daily, cymbalta 60 mg daily, Lortab 7.5/500 x 4x, fish oil, fovia,vit e,folic acid,Vit B12,inject monthly,
