Ivig and medicare

June 16, 2011 at 8:41 pm

I am on straight medicare no supplements(due to my age) I receive IVIG two times a week every week and have been for awhile. My doctor went to the drug manufacturer to see if they would decrease the cost for me and he donates his time and the facility. I still pay something but it is somewhat affordable now. (cant tell you exactly because my mom handles my finances) U should check with your nuero and or infusion center to see if they have any programs to help. I was also told that Medicaid would kick in after a while and would depend on the bills i incurred. With the doctor doing what he did i dont need medicaid just my medicare. do you have a social worker? You may wont to look into that as well they can navigate the system for you and help you with questions.
