HIV medication that you can buy yourself at low cost?
« on: October 04, 2020, 11:08:40 am »
Next year I will lose my Ryan White coverage. I will go over the income limit by a small amount. I know you can get atriple from Canada called viraday at a low cost of $2000 per year is there any other medication out there with a low cost ?? I may decide to stop medications due to high cost. With Ryan White I pay over $3000 a month for Biktarvy. In Canada you get it for half the cost why??

1) don't stop your meds. that can lead to complications.
2) you need to talk to someone at Ryan White. (is there a RW coordinator at your doctor office/clinic?)  if you have insurance, in most states (I thought it was all states now) RW ADAP covers premiums and often copays. I'm surprised your costs are that high already. Make sure when you talk to someone that you explain your out of pocket costs are going to stop you from adhering to your regimen. That'll light a first under their butts, as med adherence is one of the RW measurements that all clinics must adhere to. ;)
