I had to go to an area hospital and my insurance did cover it. I think I paid $35, but this was five years ago. My TPMT test show my body is at the low end for metabolizing 6mp so I am only on a dose of 50 mg. My GI has told me I may could go to 75 mg, but based on the TPMT test, I will not go higher than that or risk liver issues.
The Prometheus Serology 7 test was very helpful at differentiating between CD and UC in my case. A lot of people here will downplay that test's predictive value, but most of the research I have done has shown it to be very accurate, and I have researched it very much because I was trying to disprove it as a viable test since it showed I had Crohn's disease and not UC.
