My insurance covers 80% of the Remicade treatment. Meesh, I wish I had your insurance!
My GI said if Remi works for me, I will have to take it "indefinitely" since people usually start flaring if they go off of it.
For those of you who have been taking Remi, how long was it before you noticed positive differences (big or small) and when did you reach remission?
