Advice & Tips:
For some reason the Oregon Health Plan (new Obama-care insurance) does not cover Asacol HD 800mg TBEC. My recent flare-up may have been exacerbated because I ran out of the medication and couldn't get it refilled. For the last 2 weeks I have been paying out-of-pocket for it and it is EXPENSIVE. I will have to either find another medication option on Monday or work on the appeal process (which looks like a pain in the ass). Until then I will be paying out the whazoo for it because it is the only medication I know of that really can keep me in remission without noticeable side effects.
