Veggie & Dawn: Thanks so much for the info, I've been waiting for something new for a while now. My insurance too did not cover it, but thru my Rheumy and the staff there they said I'm eligable for the assistance program which pays for all your injections based on your income. Here is some info for you if you feel you are eligable.. call this # 1-800-393-4675 called the ENcourage Foundation, they will screen you right over the phone then send you an application.
Like I said before I've had this disease since I was 4 so I'm use to all this change of meds, blood tests and whatever else you all have to go thru. I've had both my hips and knees replaced too so I have built up a pretty big size pain tolerance. Anyway good luck to all my fellow arthritis sufferers, hope I can help anyone out there. Thanks again for the info
