Please give me any advice - Paying for Lupron no insurance
I am writing this from abroad.
I am 44 and stage 1 Luminal B (HER2-negative) breast cancer and was diagnosed so 2 years ago.
I went through a surgery, chemo for 12 weeks, and radiation therapy for 30 times.
Now I am undergoing treatment with Lupron depot - 3 month 11.25mg) and Tamoxifen (10mg).
I am an American but have spent most of my life abroad, so I don't have any health insurance in the states.
I am planning to come back to Nebraska for a year.
But I googled and saw a lupron shot is more than $5000 without an insurance.
Is this true??
I don't know what to do with this situation but the only thing I can say is that I cannot give up these treatments for my daughters who are only 6 and 7 years old no matter where I live.
Do you know any insurance company I can offer even I am a breast cancer patient in treatment?
Or do you think I can enroll medicaid?
I read an article that breast cancer can enroll medicaid without income limit.
But I am sure for nothing yet.
I am not sure even I really understand this medicaid system…
Please help me out!
I greatly appreciate your advices in adance.
Thank you very much!!
