Hi, I am Chris, I am 25,  and I am from Germany. I am planning to move to the U.S. in the next few years after my Masters Degree. Since the insurance situation in the U.S. is quite different, I am pretty concerned about all the costs that could occur. Currently, I get Entyvio injetctions every other week, and see my doctor about every two months. It would be awesome if there are a few people out there who could write about their experience and their yearly costs, and plans they have, so that I can compare and get a bigger picture. Thank you guys so much! Chris

Hi Chris, 

I am in the same situation as you (from France), I was able to get enough treatment until I get back in December for Christmas because it seems like it's cheaper for me to fly home than seeing a doctor out here in California.
Were you able to get more informations regarding insurance etc... If yes, would love if you could share them with me.
