Cost Of Remicade Infusions

Cost Of Remicade Infusions

I was considering Remicade infusions for RA, but got a price estimate of $1550-$1700 an infusion from my provider. I'm wondering what other people pay and if there is something like an "Enbrel Co-Pay Card" that can be used to cover costs?

Has Anyone Heard About Gene Therapy For RA?

I am interested in Gene therapy as I think it is the closest thing to a cure out there for RA. Also, wondering what criteria they look at in order to be a candidate for a trial for this therapy.
