Like many other brand-name-only medications, Gliadel can be quite expensive. If you do not have insurance, you may be wondering how you can afford treatment. If you do have insurance, you may wonder how you can afford the copayments for this and your other medications.
Some companies offer patient assistance programs that can help people with the cost of medications. The Eisai Patient Assistance Program can provide support and information that may help with insurance reimbursement. In some cases, the program may provide Eisai medicines, including Gliadel, at no cost to people who meet certain financial eligibility criteria. Talk to your healthcare provider about this program or visit the Eisai Patient Assistance Program Web site at http://www.eisaireimbursement.com/Gliadel/PatientAssistance.aspx.
