Posting for a friend ~
Her son is 7 years old and has all sorts of allergies for which he takes weekly injections of serum to inhibit the allergies (I'm guessing on how to phrase this) - she said the shots are to boost his immunity.
Her new insurance is wanting her to pay $20.00 EVERY WEEK in order for her son to receive the shot.
Couldn't she be trained by the nurse or doctor to give her son these injections Sub Cu on her own thus saving the money?! That equals out to $80-100.00 a month, 1200$ a year, etc etc.
She was trained very briefly on how to administer the Epi Pen Injection for him - the nurse said "Stick it through his jeans right there" But didn't show her or point to the right spot, didn't tell her how deep to go, etc etc.
Does anyone have any experience with this? If so, would you mind sharing how you went about getting that cleared from your doc's office and ordering the serum?
Thanks so much!!!
