Paying for Tarceva

I just found out from my husband's oncologist that Tarceva costs approximately $8,000.00 per month!  Who can pay that much for a drug?

Right now the doctor's office is trying to find out if our ins. company will cover Tarceva.  If not then the remission my husband is in now will be threatened.  I can't believe the cost!!

       Has anyone here been on this drug?  How did you pay for it?

I am taking tarceva for about a month now. My insurance pays all but $20. I have seen messages where people were able to get help on the cost but i cant remember where. Search all the messages. I go the doctor for scans on 12-13-07 to see if tarceva is working for me..................good luck and god bless

I was on Tarceva for 2 yrs and my insurance co paid, I pd the co-pay of $15.00 per month.  My statements from the drug co showed that the drug cost was around $3,000. per month.  There are ways of getting it, check with the drug company direct.  Good luck  Vette

Just thought you'd be interested in knowing that we found out that my husband will only have to pay $35 for the Tarceva.  What a relief!

I guess his insurance is really great. I feel bad for those who have no assistance paying for expensive drugs.
