I was due for radiation and chemo tomorrow 1/15/2013. The chemo people called to say they will require $1700 prepay up front for first week and $290 per week after that for Erbitux (about 7 visits). Up to that point I have had 6 operations and 11 teeth extracted along with many visits to various doctors at $40 per visit prepay. If we were given some warning regarding cost and having to pay up front things would have been ok, or at least give us some sort of payment plan. At least the radiation people said they would give us some sort of payment plan, lets hope it is reasonable. I will be seeing a social worker soon to discuss finances and disability of some sort which will help no doubt.
I just thought it was a little rich being told at the last minute to come up with $1700 etc. as if everyone has a spare few thousand lying around.
