I take an injection for psoriasis. My copay was $3,000 with insurance. I was given a phone number to call where I get a break in the price so I only pay $5.00 . The fact that I had to go through three separate people to get where I needed to is bonkers.

I've seen the medication as high as $19,000.00

Humera? And does it work for you? (might be completely misremembering the option)

Stelara, works works wonders

Thanks. Looks similar to me. I tried otezla pills but the upset stomach and risk of suicidal depression had me spooked after a month. Clobetasol foam works to reduce it if I remember to apply twice daily, but it's annoying to do the same thing for years and only ever reduce patches, never stop them

Humera didn't work for me. The amount of injections needed to get rid of the psoriasis was too much and it didn't work for me.

I got stelara and do an injection every twelve weeks
