Just wanted to say thank you for your husband's service and send condolences for your loss. You seem to try to maintain a positive attitude which is remarkable given all you've been through.
Not familiar with VA medical either, but I just want to point out that if you look into Remicade's assistance program, don't give up just because of what it may say on the website. Always call them and ask. I say this because I'm getting a couple of my medications for free from the manufacturers, despite their websites saying they don't offer assistance to Medicare users. They have other, kinda secretive (in that they don't openly advertise this sometimes) assistance programs. Salix is one of the manufacturers that helps me out and they are very kind and helpful on their telephone assistance lines. Never hurts to call and ask. Medicare health programs are great, but the cost sharing on prescriptions can be really high, especially for expensive medications like we take, and there is no out of pocket limit.
Hi FlowersGal! Nice to meet you.
Thank you so much for your condolences they are much appreciated. And thank you for the great tips for ways to try to get help with the cost of the medicines. I feel your positive energy and am inspired to give it a try and as always to keep up the good fight for a happy and healthy live again. Wishing you the best and sending positive energy right back to you today.
