William - I am currently switching from My wife's Honda Insurance (she will retire in the next couple of months) to Medicare / Supplement / Advantage. I am currently taking Ninlaro but Medicare plans boil down to a ca. $13,000 /year OOP charge. I was getting shots of Velcade prior to the convenience of Ninlaro. My Onc. says I can go back to Velcade as it is much *****er (ca. $1300 /year) Q 1- Do you know if Takeda can help? Q 2- Do you know if Velcade is billed through Medicare B as opposed to through Advantage or Supplement plans? Thank you - Bill Serfaty

Reply from Jennifer - Hi Bill, I suggest you reach out to the Ninlaro Patient ***istance Program https://www.takedaoncology1point.com/patient/home and also consider working with our Myeloma Financial Coach Diahanna Vallentine. She is super! You can register as a patient on www.myelomacoach.org and then pick her as your coach.
