Portuguese term or phrase: autocusto
From a transcription of a customer service conversation from a company in Brazil. The customer is asking about an injection system for her daughter's medication.

Could this actually be "alto custo" instead of "autocusto"?

Eu tenho problema de esclerose, e o outro laboratório que tem o meu remédio, eles vieram aqui, trouxeram o disparador para mim, sabe, tudo pelo SUS, aquele autocusto, né?


Porque o meu... o dela também é autocusto, e o meu também é autocusto.

Alto custo, for sure.
I've already used that service from the government ;)
My little one needed a special formula when he was a baby.

I'd explain this as a high cost drug program sponsored by SUS - Sistema Único de Saúde (Brazilian Unified Health System), or something like that.
