On Beyond Cancer

My life with metastatic breast cancer

Afinitor delivery April 21, 2014

Filed under: Uncategorized — onbeyondcancer @ 2:55 pm

My current drug, Afinitor, is available only through a specialty pharmacy.  I have to call an 1-800 number to request a refill.  Then they ask how many pills I have left and give me a delivery date.  UPS brings the package and it is signature required.  The pharmacy rep told me that if did not want a signature required, I would be liable for the cost of the medicine, should it be lost or stolen.  A one month supply is $30,000, so I will happily wait for the UPS guy once a month.

    Wow! That’s expensive stuff! Thank God for insurance. Sounds like it’s easy as well. Love, Dad

    Good thing your co-pay is zero.
