Two Co Pay Cards
« on: August 31, 2015, 10:29:34 PM »
I maxed out my Gilead co-pay card and can't afford my ~$700/month co-pay.  I know I have a shitty insurance plan, I intend on changing it when my office opens enrollment in the fall.

Was thinking of registering for the Bristol Myers Squibb co-pay card to make it through the rest of the year.  Anyone have experience using multiple cards? 

I'm going to call my Doctor to get his POV and my pharmacy is great, I think they'd be frank with me.  But wanted to see what you all think.

I'm pretty sure you can use two cards over the course of a year, but talk to the Bristol Myers Squibb people to make sure.  I don't think you'll have a problem.

On a related note, check to see if your insurance has an out-of-pocket maximum per year.  A great thing about using a co-pay assistance card (or cards) is that the amount of the co-pay assistance often counts toward your total out-of-pocket cost for the year, so you may find that, if your out-of-pocket for the year has been exceeded, you won't have to pay the co-pay anyway.

With the use of co-pay assistance cards, combined with out-of-pocket maximums per year, you could end up, in effect, paying nothing for your meds.

Good luck and stay well!
