My husband was diagnosed w/pancreatic cancer on 05/26 and since has had his pancreas removed and is at home recovering. He now has to take Creon - 24,000 Units with every meal. He only has Medicare A & B coverage but not D. We paid the full price ($589) through Rite Aid. In our search for assistance to help us pay for Creon, we found out that because we are not at the poverty level, we do not qualify for special programs (e.g.; Abbott Company - makers of Creon, Medical, Partnership for assistance - pparx.org). Can anyone offer us any information in lowering the Creon cost? Thank you.
