I was wondering if you could share how your immunotherapy is financed - does the drug company give you a reduced rate or pay it entirely on compassionate grounds? Did you get it only as part of a trial or is it now approved for 'standard of care'? I recently learned that two of my mutations may respond well to immunotherapy but I keep reading comments about how expensive it is. I would like a heads up on the cost to the patient and how Ontarians can get around that because it will be my next step when Avastin and Taxol stop working for me. Did you go through the hospital financial aid department or did your oncologist fight for you to get it or put you in a trial? We have a lot of important financial decisions to make in 2023 so any advance information will be good. My onc tends to say 'We will cross that bridge when we come to it' which isn't very helpful when it comes to planning ahead financially. My husband is on disability and will be retiring at 65 and lose his company health insurance. I'm retired and we have a very fixed income. We are both 63 years old so some benefits (at 65) haven't kicked in yet. Also if you were getting insurance through work and then retired - did you have trouble qualifying for private health insurance with your cancer diagnosis? Did you find that most cancer drugs and treatments are covered at age 65? Lots to learn about and plan for. Thanks for any advice you can give me. Please don't tell me to wait and see - that's not how I function well in the world - I'm a planner (taking into account that there are always unknown, unpredictable variables). My husband isn't a planner - he's a worrier - so I am always looking to reassure him that we will survive this financially.
