paying for soliris

Am going to be getting soliris treatments for PNH. I am concerned about the cost of this treatment and how it would get paid for. Does anyone know if Medicare covers this cost? Also, are there any Medigap Supplement insurance plans that cover soliris treatments. How about Medicare Advantage plans?
Any help on these areas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

I am not familiar enough with Medicare/medigap so I'm no help to you. Have you contacted medicare? Or your doctor's office for help? Sometimes the social workers at the hospitals will help. It's a terribly expensive drug.
