Big Pharma, in the past has set up "foundations" that will pay all your co-pays as long as you have some type of insurance paying the bulk of the ridiculous posted list price which virtually nobody pays...They WANT you to use the super-profitable drug even if they must pay your co-pays to make this happen..The PAN Foundation was / is one such organization...They may have stopped doing it when the government threatened to investigate the practice..Your doctor or his "Special Pharmacist" will know all the angles available to help with the costs...Much depends on your income and assets...Generic versions of both Zytiga and Xtandi are available from overseas pharmacies at a fraction of the cost but at increased risk..
