Medicare To Pay for Anti-rejection Maintenance Drugs
Thank you so much for this clearing house of vital information and support while I learn to navigate through the all the testing, meetings and emotional issues connected to my IPF.
As you can imagine I have been bombarded with information from the Cleveland Clinic Transplant Team concerning a much needed double lung transplant. I just started all the testing, having spent two full days at their Main Campus and getting a chance to meet everyone. One of my biggest concerns is the finical burden of all of the different anti-rejection drugs one must take for the remainder of your life. Being that I will be receiving this life saving procedure, (God Willing), under Medicare, would someone happen to know if these anti-rejection drugs such as Tacrolimus, Cellcept, Posaconazole, etc have their cost covered under Medicare for the rest of my life? I seem to be finding conflicting information concerning this. Anything information to help enlighten myself and my wife would be greatly appreciated.
