The price tag is enormous. Do you know anything about if insurance companies will help cover the cost?

Is ZYNTEGLO really able to help Thal Majors keep their Hb in normal or near-normal ranges ? Is there anyone on this group who has tried this drug ? Yes, the cost is too expensive. About 2-3Million dollars.
