That is about the same estimated price that I am seeing listed everywhere, which is pretty normal for these types of medications, especially being this new.

I've no information on insurances covering it, though. That would depend on the insurance and if it actually gets approval.


Does anyone else have more information on this?

Since I'm new to this website and you posted in 2012, I'm sure you know Jakafi is now FDA approved and on the market. You have also probably been hit with the exorbitant cost. I am on Medicare and have been on this drug for over a year, but it is the only Rx drug I take. I will tell you it doesn't take long to reach the catastrophic level, which makes the co-pay about $539 a month. I do not qualify for any type of assistance. I would appreciate hearing your feedback.

Re: brandi (# 4)

I am not eligible for subsidies from the company because I have medicare. Only those privately insured are eligible.
