    So just an update. My insurance will only pay for the name brand Carac cream. All the the pharmacy suppliers refuse to order/stock Carac because all other insurance company only cover the generic, fluorouracil. I've been calling and am so stressed out. This is going into the fourth week. I could almost be done with this treatment. I'm scheduling another doctor's appointment because since then I've had numerous ...

      So I called the insurance company and the doctor today. I have been approved for Carac finally! Went to the pharmacy and they do not have it in stock so know I have to wait for it to be ordered. I should be able to pick it up by Tuesday or Wednesday. I guess that gives me a few days to pick up some books to read and pull out some crafts. I have some friends that have volunteered to make time to the store if I ne...

        Yes I'm calling first thing in the morning! It's been a week and I would like to start the treatment this weekend. I'm going to stock up on some other things I may need. I'm single with no family nearby so I'm hoping to get everything I need as I've been reading through the messages and have been taking notes on things that have helped other people. Trying to figure out something to keep me busy for when I'm off ...

            Yes I am in the US. I was working with the nurse to get authorization but I think I will call the insurance company directly tomorrow while I wait to get back from the nurse. I have 4 spots and 2 others that have just come up in the past 2 days. I would like to get started as soon as possible because I was planning on a vacation and would just like to get all of this over with. I really appreciate you answering m...

              Thank you so much for all the information and support. Still haven't heard anything from my dermatologist about wether the medicine will be covered. Any recommendations if it's not? The pharmacy said it's $900 if I pay it out of pocket, which I don't have at the moment. I tried the online discount cards and the pharmacy said it's $1300 with the discount card. I don't understand why insurance wouldn't cover it si...

                First I'd like to thank everyone for the helpful information and insights. I was prescribed efudex last week but I'm fighting to get this covered by my insurance. I'm scared and have anxiety after reading everyone's experiences. I tend to be sensitive to most medications so I guess we'll see how I react. I'm planning on getting stocked up with supplies add I prepare for the next 4-6 weeks. My question is that I ...
