Hello all! I was diagnosed with PBC in 2014 and have been relatively lucky so far to deal well with the URSO and also deal well prices on the drug. The last two years my deductible on my insurance was met due to lots of medical issues and tests, so my drugs have been pretty cheap. So as January approaches I started looking at the cash price of URSO with my Good Rx app. This year, the price for a 90 day supply at Walmart was about 125.00 dollars. That wasn't bad at all for me. Last month I checked the app and the price was 125.00 for a 30 day supply! Then I looked today and it had changed from 125.00 for a 30 day supply to 212.00 for a 30 day supply! I have decent insurance and a good job, but if the price keeps going up I don't know what I will do. I can't stop the medicine as its the only thing prolonging my life, but I also don't know what I will do about paying for this. My deductible is 2700.00, but its only on medical things, so even if I submit my claims for the medicine a month, it isn't meeting my deductible, just the pharmacy one, which is 3500.00. I checked and the 250mg tablet is cheaper, but still 158.00 a month, and I take the 300 now four times a day. I would either have to reduce my dosage to 250 four times a day or 5 times a day for the 158.00. I also have to take thyroid medicine and blood pressure medicine, but thank goodness its not that much.
I just don't know what I am going to do. If it keeps going up, I don't know what I will do.
Its nearing the point where I may not be able to afford it.
