My doctor wants me to try Dovonex for my psoriasis but my insurance won't cover it! I was wondering if you guys know of any patient support programs for this? Has anyone tried to purchase this in Canada or Mexico?
Thank you for your help!

Thanks for reaching out here. Insurance issues are such a struggle for so many of our community members. I am sorry that you have to deal with these on top of dealing with the psoriasis. Is appealing the insurance decision an option?
We have some information on getting assistance with prescription costs in the following article: https://plaquepsoriasis.com/living/resources-reduced-cost-healthcare/ I hope this is of some help. If you haven't done so already, it may also be worth looking at the generic version of Dovonex - calcipotriene. Often the generics are much cheaper than the branded medications.
I'm over in the UK so can't speak to getting Dovonex elsewhere, but I hope anyone with relevant experience will stop by and share with you. Please keep us updated if you can! -Catherine, Community Moderator

Insurances are a pain in the butt. I hope you get to have a good experience soon.
