As part of a total SNAFU at my urologist today I was told that I can not get my lupron shot as part of the office visit; now I must come back for a Lupron "clinic". Nurse and receptionist say this is a Medicare requirement. Has anyone heard of this? I've been "off" for 2+ years so I'm not in a position to argue...yet! Apparently it has something to do with the higher cost of lupron vs zoladex...as determined by a bunch of lawyers for Medicare back in 2001--really!
while the dr appt was cancelled for an emergency, he had looked at my last PSA and said, normal! He doesn't have a clue and clearly has done no homework.
