Open season is here! We only have 1 prescription insurance currently. So I was looking into Medicare part D. When I spoke to the rep there... she said if they prescribed a drug they don't cover...they ask the doctor for a different drug! I replied Excuse me Ma'am but I currently have 2 cancers without a cure... "Controllable " if the Oncologist says drug #1, and you ask him to change it...Your asking me to meet Jesus. No disrespect intended. It is what it is. I have Googled the prices of the… read more
I’m not sure if this would help but I have been told if you’re in a situation where your insurance doesn’t cover everything of your pharmaceuticals. If you write a letter to the pharmaceutical company, they have been known to pick up the cost. Just a suggestion I’m very sorry that you’re dealing with everything and I totally 100% agree with you. 🙏🏻
There are many organizations the provide grant for cancer medication. My “special”pharmacist has a case worker that the only job they have is to get each patient grants for the expensive drugs. So far I have had a Pan grant from LLS, Then when that ran out got a full year with AZ&ME direct from the company making the drug, and now on a different medication, the found a new grant for one full year at a time. Many health networks also have case workers just for grant finding for their clients.
I hope you can get services through your Dr to get some of these grants. I wouldn’t be able to afford a place to live without the financial support.
Call your doctor’s office and ask if there is any assistance available from the drug company. Sometimes they will reduce the price to make it acceptable to you. Also, go to Medicare.com and set up ap a My Medicare account, then check out all of the drug plans for Part D. Good luck.
Thank you for that! Bless you for taking the time to tell me.
I don't know how long I can live with my husband... he cannot handle anything normally and drank it away... he was sober for more than 7 months, but my last diagnosis pushed him over the edge... again. I refuse to get severely sick here... he wants to be babyed. I can't heal/ stay positive this way... I'm working on building my credit to be with family now.
