Sticker Shock

I called around today to find out how much it would cost to just pay for the pazopanib.  Oooh, baby, it's expensive. The regular wholesale price is $6,863 per month.  The lower price that was negotiated by my insurance is $5,600.

CVS would be happy to work with me to come up with a price, in case I want to self pay. But it sounded like the best I could hope for was the $5,600 that my insurance would have paid. Still too high!

Unfortunately, I do not quality for any help from the manufacturer, GlaxoSmithKline. That includes their programs to sell it to you for a lower price, as well as their programs to find charitable organizations to help you pay for it.

But, we actually have not exhausted all our appeals.
