Revlimid vs Medicare

Posted on September 19 2009 by Pat Killingsworth | 1,751 views

According to the Medicare guidelines, out-patient chemotherapy should be covered under Medicare Part B. So why aren’t oral chemotherapy drugs like Revlimid covered? I became eligible for Medicare benefits this month. But I am running into a number of challenges. First, Medigap insurance enrollment isn’t guaranteed for beneficiaries under age 65. (I’m only 53) And Medicare alone is not a great option – too many things aren’t covered. Second, if Revlimid does indeed fall under Medicare Part D, my yearly drug costs will exceed $5000, even with a supplemental Part D plan. Ouch! Can’t afford that! I will do more research over the next few days and let you know what solutions I come up with. THIS SHOULDN’T BE SO HARD!
ISN’T HAVING CANCER HARD ENOUGH?
I will try not to get discouraged and frustrated so I can feel good and keep smiling!
(But it isn’t easy!) Pat

    I would also love to add if you do not already have got an insurance policy or you do not participate in any group insurance, you could well reap the benefits of seeking the aid of a health broker. Self-employed or people having medical conditions usually seek the help of an health insurance specialist. Thanks for your post.

    Self serving or not, this is excellent advice!

    Wow! This is an old post. Sorry it isn’t laid-out very well–when I switched blogging platforms a few years back content became jumbled on some of these and I didn’t want to take the time to try and correct them all.

    There is some good news. First, you may qualify for Chronic Disease Fund or LLS co-pay program that will pay the co-pays up to $10,000 in some cases. And there is a Federal law being considered to require oral chemo drugs to be covered like infusion drugs. Some states are doing the same. And the oft-hated Obamacare shouldn’t be hated by myeloma survivors on Medicare. The doughnut hole is slowly closing each year under the legislation. If you earn under $85,000 a year as a couple, you should order my Financial Aid book. Lots of tips to help recoup costs in there…
