Starting 7/17/15 I received On-body Neulasta after each of 4 AC chemos. Cost billed to Insurance each bi-weekly was $18K !!!!! I was in shock

Easy to Do: Agree

    I know these shots are expensive,, just didn't know how much!! my daughter got the onbody shots also,, I got them in my arm the day after,, which meant I had to go back to the doctor to get it,, I think the on body is the best thing! As for the cost,, you know that the cost of meds is way outta line,, I'm not real sure why the cost of things are so high,, I'm sure glad that the insurance picked up the cost!!
    How are you tolerating the shots?? How did you tolerate the chemo?? will you need anymore chemo,, or radiation?
    Prayers to you,,
    I am a year out from surgery,, and 6 months since all treatments ended..
