Hello Srinu. You can ask your oncologist to guide you for the dealer /distributor definitely you will get discount.

Thank you very much your prompt reply. We have discussed with our Oncologist, based on our discussion each costs around Rs. 58000 and it seems to be unbearable for us and discount is for 4 injections 1 injection is free. Could please help me. My brother in law is working in state govt. of Andhra Pradesh. Is there any chance reimbursement.

Can you please confirm whether it is 4 injections + 1 free or 6 injections + 1 free. I am enrolled in Blue Tree Program for my Mom and they are currently offering 6 +1.

Hi Naik,

My wife was given HERCEPTIN - biceltis

Which costed 58200/- for 440 mg, I paid this price for 5 cycles and the 6th cycle cost me 61000/- due to GST. In the market it is available for 40000/- at Chennai, just place your query at indiamart. Com and the pharmacy companies will call you with different prices. But make sure your oncologist and your hospital will agree to this,
