The oral cancer fairness act is a state by state law requiring insurance companies to cover pill treatments that you can take at home and not just the shots, etc., that you get in the doctors office. There are still a lot of states that have not passed it yet.
With the results from the Stampede and Latitude trials out there is a big push to put fellow warriors on Lupron and Zytiga (with prednisone). I live in Michigan which has not passed the oral cancer fairness act. As a result my medical oncologist was not very positive that the Zytiga would be covered. Lucky for me, while I live in Michigan my insurance is from New Jersey (retirement medical from work). I just have to pay $22 of the $9500 monthly cost.
I was wondering how many of us who live in states that have not passed the fairness act have had their request for coverage denied.
