What insurance plans are you on that cover trikafta while on Medicare? Or did you give up Medicare to take a separate policy?

bharison, I am signing up for Medicare soon. May I ask you...how were you able to get assistance through the copay assistance fund? Which one did you use? Did you have to qualify by making a certain cut off per year? What is your monthly copay for Trikafta? I would greatly apprecaite you helping me as this is weighing heavily on my mind.

In addition to the Assistance Fund, Vertex also has an co-pay assistance program for their CF modulator drugs called GPS.

There is an income limit! Also some co-pay assistance programs are not applicable if you have Medicare. I don’t qualify and my monthly co-pay is $1100. That’s 5% of the drug’s cost. (I’m not complaining.)

My co-pay for Trikafta is $10. per order. tafcares.org is the web site for The Assistance Fund I get support from.
There are other support funds but this was the only one I qualified for. the CF Foundation Compass program was helpful is providing information on Medicare insurance plans and other assistance funds.
