Sorry to here about
I went thru a very recent good experience for an outrageously expensive oral chemo ... and all of the help came thru my oncologist. Now - I do have medicare and supplemental and prescription coverage (the last two paid 100% by me) - but the cancer meds are horrendously expensive, and I could not afford the $2850./month co-pay for the latest med.
With a great amount of help from my Onco's office, that med is being bought directly from the manufacturer ... and my out-of-pocket was the first $600. of that med ... then the balance of the year was at no cost to me. My Onco's office further found an organiztion that, based on my income (and no pension here), that organization will now reimburse me the $600. already spent + give me a stipend for my cancer med that will help for the next 12-months.
I do not know of any such help from Doctors and chemo by IV ... but check all sources - starting probably with the Oncologist.
The best of luck to you.
