Bellski, a lot of the manufacturers have special programs where people in need can get their medications at a reduced rate. You have to apply and be approved.
For me, because I had such a long flare and don't particularly respond to the first-line drugs, keeping insurance coverage is one of the most important things. My Remicade costs $4000+ a treatment, and I couldn't use it without insurance. Then my only choice would be surgery, which I also couldn't pay for.
