Hi Gang,
Coming from another message board, looking for help for FLA. Family having a hard time finding a way to pay for Xeloda. Started the appeal process with Genetech. Anyone using Xeloda ? How is it going, how did you pay for it ?
Thanks

Thanks for the response, surprised too Manuf. did not pay right away. Would you mind if I mention to family that you have been approved ? I'll try to help them push through the appeal.

Xeloda really is expensive. My husband was on it last year and has a Humana Medicare Advantage plan. With it our co-pay per cycle was $500. They count that not as a prescription but as a medical part B expense since it is a substitute for a chemo given IV. Once he met the $5000 out-of-pocket expenses limit for the year (unfortunately, not hard to do with all the staging tests, etc, co-pays) then they paid for all of it.
