I don't know if anyone else went into shock when they discovered how much the co-pay  for chemo treatment would be,  like  I did.  We have Medicare with a supplmental policy, with an annual  deductible of  just over  $6700.00.  When  they told us the copay for each treatment would run $700-$900 dollars I had no idea how we were going to come up with the upfront cost before each treatment.
