Sorry, not finished! Apparently my insurance does not cover Olaparib. Beware! It costs a fortune. If this does not kill off the Remaining cancer I will return to chemo.

Hi Starko
Thank you for sharing. I need to call my insurance, as well. I was on the drug manufacturer's website the other day and noticed a link for financial assistance. I learned some non-profit organizations also provide assistance. Did you check out any resources for helping to pay for the medication you need to take? I attended the OCRA (Ovarian Cancer Research Alliance) conference the other week and learned of another resource. It is called the Medicine Assistance Tool this was created for patients who need help with paying meds by the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA) organization Their website is mat.org. They essentially are a clearinghouse advocacy group helping connect patients with resources. Hope this information might be useful for you.
Thanks again for your sharing!
