I had forgotten about the fact that people have to try the oral meds (and more than one kind) to see if you are helped by them first. The insurance companies don't just pay out for the really expensive stuff first.

Also, you have to meet certain other criteria first for most of these spendy chemo drugs in order to be able to get them.Most of the big drugs have a committee of sorts who have to go through all the applications for a med and pick out who meets the criteria and who needs it the most. Also, the drug shortage makes a difference in this selection choice. Irish
