What Are People Paying For Jakafi

What Are People Paying For Jakafi

I am on Medicare and Medicare Drug Plan, using AARP, I was just thinking about going to Jakafi and the price I am being quoted is around 2900.00 per month for 10Mg twice a day. Just curious what the real cost is. I can go to my Cancer Center and ask them to try for a better price, still won't know what the price should be.

$2900 should be the price without submitting your insurance. Once your insurance is submitted, it should be a lot lower if not free

When I started taking Jakafi 5 years ago it was $18,000 a month, PAN Foundation paid for everything. the important catch with any funding is to make sure you are up to date with your grant money. PAN foundation always sends notices regarding getting close to reapplying for another grant and their website is wonderful. Incyte makes Jakafi and they too have a program for financial assistance. I always had a Medicare advantage plan so assistance is easier. Now oral chemo is covered under regular tier levels like other medications which has brought the cost down considerably. When I started on it, it arrived a plastic bottle of (Jakafi ) came in a small THICK Styrofoam cooler with frozen ice packs around the bottle. Now, even in the 110 degrees it comes in a small brown box and is left at my front door in the shade..Times are changing.
