I recently got prescribed Forteo for my osteoporosis. It's going to cost me $240/month with my insurance (bluecross blueshield ppo). I am stressing majorly about this, to the point of tears.
When I asked my doctor if there are cheaper options besides forteo or boniva IV, she said "to be honest, all the treatments covered by your insurance are actually very expensive or around the same price".
I don't know what im going to do. I'm already paying $450 a semester for college (broke it down to payments around $80 a month).
I am stressed to the max. I asked my parents for help, but of course, this is going to be hard on them---especially since my pregnant older sister moved back in with them with her boyfriend and her boyfriends 1 year old son. Plus their dog has diabetes and has to have 2 shots a day.
I mean really, what do I do?!
I'm doing the best I can.
