The next step in the process of getting my hands on Cinryze has just been completed.
The specialty pharmacy that will be providing me with Cinryze, CVS/Caremark, called today. My case manager there, Mary, did an exhaustive medical history in preparation to ship Cinryze to my house (yay!). From all the questions she asked and the things we discussed, it appears that I have been granted permission to do my own infusions (yay!!) and she even said she will be able to put together a travel kit so I can fly out to see my grandmother (double yay!!!).
I still have no idea how any of this is going to be paid for, but I can’t worry about it. After I calculated that one month of Cinryze is going to cost over $43,000.00, I blew all the gaskets in my head so fast I haven’t been able to think about it since. It’s the job of my case manager at Viropharma, Shawney, to worry about how all of this gets paid for, so (although I’m extremely curious) I’m just not overly concerned.
Instead, I’m really pretty damn excited! There’s a very slight chance I might be in business before Yule.
Holy Cinryze, Batman!
