Hi, My name is Lori and my significant other was diagnosed with CML 2/2/10. He was on Gleevec for 1 year and it quit working. He was switched to Tasigna and had horrible untolerable side effects that landed him in the hospital. He was started on Sprycel March of this year and he is doing very well. He has insurance, but the company decided as of July 1st to only pay 50 percent of his medication cost, leaving the remaining $3990 for him to pay a month. That amount is not even possible to pay. He has contacted the drug company-they won't pay because he has insurance that covers it, he contacted Healthwell-they don't have the funds for it, PSI- they don't cover it, either, Diplomat specialty-very hard to contact, but they have his application. I contacted the drug company today and begged them to help. The person stated she would contact her supervisor and I would hear something tomorrow. In the meantime, he has been without medication for 1 week now and it appears that drug companies and insurance companies in general do not really care whether he has this lifesaving medication. He works full time, doesn't qualify for disability, and doesn't qualify for medicaid or public assistance. Are there any other resources available to assist with getting this medication? I am pretty much at the end of my hope on this unless the drug company decides to assist. I am very worried and thought maybe someone here might be able to give me some insight.
