This is so exciting!!!
As more information comes out, I am very concerned about the cost. Kalydeco comes with an annual price tag of $294,000. Is insurance even going to cover that? I know that Vertex has an assistance program, but how many can they fit under that umbrella? It makes me wonder about the even bigger picture...when we find a cure for CF, cancer, MS, etc. is the cure going to even be accessible to the people who need it and does that ever enter the thinking of the foundations/charities that raise money for research? Curious.
