The Cost of One Rituxan Treatment

What's posted above is a cut/paste from a recent billing statement. This is the cost breakdown from one of my Rituxan infusions. And I've had EIGHT so far -- four in July 2014 and four in February 2015. 

My treatments were pre-approved by my insurance company, so my own portion of this bill is not nearly as obnoxious as the sticker price. 

But seriously -- who can afford this stuff? Why is this drug so expensive? I just don't understand our health system.

  1. No one can afford our health care system. It is a complete mess. Health should be a right, not a privilege. Crazy.
