The High Cost of a NETs Diagnosis.

If you're like many of us, managing the costs associated with Neuroendocrine Cancer can feel like a never-ending battle. But guess what? There's some important information you need to know about recent changes that could potentially make a big difference in your financial journey.

The Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 (IRA) is paving the way for significant improvements, including a cap on out-of-pocket costs for prescription drugs under Medicare Part D. Starting in 2025, this cap will be reduced to $2,000 per year, providing some much-needed relief for many of us facing hefty medication expenses.

But that's just the tip of the iceberg. The IRA also includes measures to make insulin more affordable, expand eligibility for financial assistance programs, and offer more transparency about drug coverage. Plus, it'll be easier to switch plans and manage your out-of-pocket costs throughout the year.

To get the full scoop on how these changes could impact you and your journey with Neuroendocrine Cancer, we encourage you to dive into more details HERE.
