Emplaza in US

The cost of the medication is more than $10,000 for a 30 day supply. Insurance has also rejected it. So, wanted to check if there is a better way to get the deflazacort in the US if we can't get it from Emplaza?Any suggestions?See More

Good Luck, She is the best! You'll know for sure you're in good hands with the care your son will receive! We travel from PA, I had to find out what everyone was talking about and now I'm a follower.

Hi Ankur....I haven't been to Dr Wong yet, but like you I feel she's the best. I'm in the process of setting up an appointment for my son..and its more involved than just calling and setting a date... the phone #'s are 513-803-3000 and fax 513-803-3300. When I first called I spoke with a Sarah who took some of my info and emailed me various forms{info sheet, doctor release, ect} You will then need to return these forms to them....They will need the DNA exam your son did, plus biopsey,ekg and ecocardiagram if done, immunization records, growth chart and CPK exam possibly more depending on what your son has done..Also a Wendy will call to give more information. Good luck Karen
