Insurance options

I am 72 and my wife 63 is a Her2neu+++ stage 4 cancer survivor.Diagnosed in 2010 and continuing to fight.We have been having New India's Mediclaim for 10 years.Only in 2010/2011 I got to know with your help that the policy covers only hospitalization.Since my wife is continuing treatment and fighting the cancer I want to know if there are any other insurance options which will cover medicines like tykerb?Is it possible to get such a policy as she is already a patient.Thanks PBK

Finding insurance options is very difficult. I think you have to contact the local govt. and Govt. hospitals for concession on the treatment.

We got around 50000/- from chief minister's fund(MP). I think this will help you in some matter.
