    Oh No

    Dad was diagnosed w/Grade 4 Glioblastoma Multiforme in Dec. 2011. We have decided to take a proactive approach with chemotherapy and radiation treatment, with hopes that his body responds favorably to treatment. Although he has health insurance under BCBS/Blue Advantage, we have just discovered that his co-pay could possibly be $1500 for a 30 day supply of Temodar. We are fearful that we will not have enough money to sustain treatment. Currently, I am applying for RX assistance through our patient advocate Ms. Carson at the Montgomery Cancer Center, but am afraid we may not qualify. What do we do next, if we are not eligible?
