Not so long ago, I searched for numbers that would guide me, or a good idea of how much money our family would have to ‘find’ in order to pay for a promising treatment for J. IVIG. I could find nothing recent. After speaking with the hospital insurance liaison, the number was determined to be just over $5000 per day, treatment lasting two days at a time. We counted on $10,000 for treatment. We were wrong.
So today, I’m putting forth this quick indication for anyone searching for this information. The first is for a “typical” round of IVIG therapy, over two days time for a child 60 lbs. The second is slightly more, I believe because veins were blown and more ‘materials’ in terms of needles, lines, gauze, etc. were used. I’ll let the papers speak for themselves.
