Cha Ching

What you are looking at is $14,000 which is the cost of one bag of darzalex.  Imagine if a myeloma patient couldn't get insurance because they were denied coverage due to a pre-existing condition or if their out of pocket cost was some huge number. This is one reason why the Affordable Care Act is so important. When I stopped working, I was allowed to keep my insurance provided I pay the entire premium. Not cheap, but definitely worth it.  Fortunately I am getting premium assistance from the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and co-pay assistance from Janssen Oncology, the maker of darzalex, has a co-pay assistance program. Thank you LLS and Janssen.
