Chemotherapy - scasey

Drug or Chemo Therapy Associated with Colorectal (Colon) Cancer. Posted on May 16, 2015 View this journey (9 Experiences)

I've done 6 chemo treatments. this was suppose to be the required 12 they said I needed, but i've missed 5 because of low white blood count or low platelets. I stopped the treatments as of 3-16-15. Where as I was told my co-pay was $ 78.84 per treatment, it has ended up being $ 261.00 plus per treatment. I just wont continue to let these bills stack up. Besides that, my ear is bloody from being told, its only a money game, over and over and over. So I have a Pet scan coming up and will see what that says. Pray for me and wish me luck.

    At that rate you shouldn't have any problem meeting your max out of pocket soon. I've been on disability for two years now and must go on medicare. I searched all the options in my area and all but one insurance company charges a 20% Co-pay for chemo. I went with the HMO w/o the Co-pay. I'm praying for you! Bonnie
