Question: My doctor believes I need to be on a medicine to prevent colon cancer, it's called Lialda. However, our insurance coverage doesn't have a prescription card and I have to pay out of pocket up to our deductible, which is $2500. Consequently, the $380/month that it would cost me each month until I reach that deductible is not in our family's budget. Are there any alternatives.
I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis back in '06, and although I only had that initial episode and one this past summer, I have been relatively healthy.
