Medicare Part D Plan Options for Crohn's


Fri, February 12, 2021 11:36 AM

I have recentlty retired at age 70 and currently on Mesalamine 1.2gm twice daily for Crohn's. Medicare Part D Drug plan options with Mesalamine (Tier 4) are very expensive. Does anyone know of or use a cheaper alternative drug for Crohn's covered by Medicare? I have had Crohn's for 30 years.

This is a smart blog. I mean it. You have so much knowledge about this issue, and so much passion. You also know how to make people rally behind it, obviously from the responses. Pasir Ris Central
