Healthcare in the USA

United Healthcare has been trying for several years to switch those of us on Remicade to Inflectra.

Inflectra is biosimilar, not an exact copy so no guarantees, It's main side effects is respiratory infections and bronchitis so good luck with that.

Remicaide's main side effects are stuffy nose and headache.

It's only about $300 cheaper for the insurance company but considering that its an infusion just like Remicade, it's still going to cost about $30,000 a treatment anyway so I'll not see any change.

The only way I can afford to hit my max out of pocket expense every single year for the past 20+ years is a rebate from the Remicade manufacture and there is no guarantee I'll get any rebate from the Inflectra people.

Our system is broken

This is my first attempt at blogging and replaces my original web site that has been online since...a long time ago. If you came looking for The Dragon BathHouse and Cafe, this is it's replacement. There will be lots do do here and if you are not carefull you will learn all about me. I might learn about me as well, along with metting and/or learning about you and that's the whole point isn't it ?
