Question about Medical/Pharm Coverage for Addison's
I am a nursing student doing research on Addison's. I decided to do Addison's because it is something I had not previously been exposed to and knew nothing about. I have done tons of research and have spent hours reading people's stories and blogs. The one thing I can't seem to find much on is the cost to an individual with Addison's. It looks like the UK pays full coverage of all monthly medications for those with Addison's. Would someone mind sharing how much the cost is for you each month here in the US? Do you have insurance that pays most or all of your coverage for doctor visits and medication? If you don't have insurance is it all out of pocket? If you don't mind sharing your experience I fully appreciate it!
I have to give this report as a public presentation and hope to get the word out more about Addison's. Health care providers need to be more aware of this so less time is spent on misdiagnosed cases.
Thank you so much for your help!
