    Price of Temodar

    Is anyone comfortable sharing how much they pay for Temodar? Is this full price or copay? How about generic temodar? We are having trouble getting my husbands Temodar because the insurance company says it's a pill and the prescription coverage company says it's chemotherapy. If it's chemotherapy it is covered by insurance and no out of pocket expense. If it is a pill we have to pay either a copay or full price. The doctor WILL prescribe generic. Just waiting to hear what the two companies decide between themselves. UGH!

      RX Crossroads Pharmacy. The ACT Program.[phone number redacted] It is income based. My husband's initial dosage of 180 mg for 28 days was $13,000.00. During my phone interview I was asked financial questions and if paying for the temodar would impose a financial hardship on my family. YES!! Every month that wonderful company sends my husband his medication within a few days with a simple phone call. And you only have to renew your application yearly.

      I pay $85 per prescription, which is the max pharmacy co-pay on my plan. I know that without insurance the 5 monthly pills would be around $2,000. Merck has a generous patient support program for those without insurance coverage.

      Sorry, meant to mention that the site goodrx.com is very helpful when comparison shopping for prescriptions, also!
