Angry that the goverment refused to pay for my medication that i need.


I just got a call telling me that the goverment refused to pay for my medication the medication costs 5000$  i believe that the  company who made the medication will be giving compasionate doses for free..  i am unsure what is going on but it upsets me that the goverment refused to pay for me..  i have crohns disease and this medication will help me..    isn`t the goverment supposed to care about the peoples health.. i personally think that all they care about is themselves..  quote..  i am ranting and i am angry...

Depending on what province/territory you're in there are programs to help with prescriptions because I think a lot of people just never get coverage with their jobs, either because they're working contracts or what have you.

In Ontario you can apply for Trillium coverage. If you're in Ontario check it out. I empathize so much because I've had to constantly justify why I need certain medications and I know that they weren't anywhere near as expensive as that. I hope that you get a resolution soon.

Oh man I'm sorry to hear your going through this, and it makes me angry too. I hate that the government denies people who really and truly need the help and support and there are SOME people who don't need it but get the help served to them on a silver platter. I feel you on this I really do because it pisses me off.

Oh don't get me started! They screwed up my maternity leave claim big time...

I'm sorry you are stuck in that situation.

It's complete bullshit. In reality we could do something about it, but enough people need to be willing to pull together for things like this.

what med? I'm in healthcare and I may have some suggestions for you, especially if you're in Omtario?

Sorry to hear that. I know different provinces is different but in my province, you could ask your DR to sign a form that you do indeed need the medication and can not afford to pay for it. It has to be renewed every year and they will have to verify with the doctor before approving it. It must be a specialist in that particular field to do the form for you. Ie. antidepressant must be a psychiatrist.You will be covered for medication related to that illness.

You could try contacting the government and see if there is anyway you could get subsidies for the meds or talk to your the dr that is prescribing it to you.

So sorry to hear that!

I'm so sorry you're in such situation. The government really has to help people in such situation. As I know, there are some pharmaceutical companies who offer prescription assistance programs. These programs typically require a doctor's consent and proof of your financial status. They can help qualifying patients without prescription drug coverage get the medicines they need through the program that is right for them. Try to search for such program. If nothing works, the last variant is to find a cheap and reliable pharmacy. Some of my Rx drugs are expensive and my insurance doesn't cover them, so I searched and was advised Canadian Pharmacy with generic drugs. You can have a look, maybe you'll find smth there. Anyway, I hope you'll get help from the government. Good luck!
