I am currently being treated at UC Irvine for apendix cancer (PMP) and I have Medi-Cal with a MONTHLY share -of -cost of $4,750!! We don't make a whole lot more than that, but that is the only thing we qualified for without having prior ins and now having a pre-exisiting conditon. My mom is all over me to ask my specialist to refer me to City of Hope because she has heard that they will help more financially and she swears they are the only cancer experts. I am conisdering switching to UCSD to go to Dr. Lowy who specializes in my specific cancer instead. So, anyone have any input on City of Hope??? Thanks!
