Yeah right - believe me its not just in America. In South Africa the cost works out to approx. R160 000.00 - (+- US$16000.00) per year for Remicade (Revelex) and the medical aids will not cover the costs. They approve Crohns as a chronic disease, but will not pay for either Remicade or Humira - Crazy !
We are busy with a case at the moment and its just sad that at the end of the day one's health and healing can be dependent on finances. I am still trying to work out what will we do if the final decision is rejected.
Is there other medication to go on or not?
