Right - check your coverage. All policies are different. They will likely cover something - may cover a lot or all or a little. Doc coverage may be different than hospital coverage. See if drugs are covered in hospital. See what is covered outpatient.

I had a lumpectomy and BC/BS covered it. Idk why they wouldn’t cover it esp since they cover a MX.
