Hi all, I know this is a pretty personal question but you would ease my mind greatly. I am on Enbrel and MTX, and I get Enbrel through the AmGen Safety Net Foundation (for those of you who don’t know what that is, it covers your medication if you have insurance that doesn’t cover the prescription and your income is low enough).
However, I just finished my graduate degree and I’m applying for jobs. I will likely get medical coverage through an employer that covers Enbrel but at what cost? I’m so worried it will no longer be something I can afford. It’s changed my life, though. As in, without it, I wouldn’t be able to work at all.
I know it will vary a lot, but if you wouldn’t mind sharing your monthly Enbrel cost on employer-covered health insurance, that would be incredible. Basically, I’m torn between taking a job I’d love at ridiculously low pay (and maybe sacrificing Enbrel??) or pushing for something at a much higher level of pay that I’d hate. I’d rather make much less money and do something I love provided that I can still afford my meds.
