Prescription for Psoriasis

If you have psoriasis, there is a new medication you may want to consider. But only if you have a fat bank account, or really good health insurance.

Many health insurance plans in Georgia have attractive premiums because they do not cover prescription drugs. Often I am told by prospective clients they don't need prescription drugs because they don't take any medications or they only use generics.

That's like saying you don't need fire protection on your home because you have never had a house fire.

Prescription drugs can be expensive.

VERY expensive.

And it is not just medications for cancer that are expensive. Sometimes you don't have to be terminal to need expensive medication.

Enbrel is sometimes used to control the symptoms of psoriasis. Each dose is expensive. If you have health insurance, a single dose will run about $1800. 

If you don't have health insurance it could be much higher.

Now we have Stelera.

If Enbrel isn't working, perhaps your doctor will suggest Stelera.

How much is Stelera?

$5,300 to $10,600 per dose . . . if you have health insurance.

So the next time you are looking for health insurance, make sure you opt for a plan that includes prescription drug coverage.
