Infusion bills, insurance, government.....blah!

The MS medication industry is right up there in the way of costs with the cancer field. My first week of infusions were outragious - well, the insurance billed amount was. I just had my second round last week, and I will be taking them every two weeks now. This is a lifelong treatment....or until something better comes along. Until then, we have about 7 years, bar no big emergent bills, before the lifetime max on the insurance is reached. Wow, I will just be a little over 40 then......what will we do then?

Day 4 = $9,919.05

Day 3 = $9,619.05

Day 2 = $9,919.05

Day 1 = $9,969.05

Total = $39426.20

The hot question lately is about government run health care or mandatory minimum health care benefits for everyone.....stay out of my business, I say. I now live with several life-long health issues and I cannot imagine not having insurance, but it cannot be forced onto us in the way the government is wanting to do. It will fail....
