Correction: New Medicare Drug Program Does NOT include Temodar!

A few weeks ago, we posted a story about a new Medicare drug program that said Temodar was included and it would bring the cost of temodar down to about $60 / month for Medicare patients. Unfortunately, it was a mistake, and Medicare said that because Temodar is already covered under a different part of Medicare, this new program would NOT apply to them. See the update at: http://www.cms.hhs.gov/researchers/demos/FctSht_Benefic_REVISED_COSTS_070104.pdf which leaves off Temodar.

Sorry for any problems this caused. If you are having problems with the cost of Temodar, the drug company that makes it has a program to help. call them at: 1-800-521-7157.
