    Does any Medicare part D drug plan cover a portion of Vidaza cost or is it all out of pocket? I have silver Script currently.

    Cliff Potenza

    I was in Vidaza for over 3 years and never paid for it because it was an integral part of my cancer treatment and was covered under part b.

    Kathleen Till

    I had Vidaza for five months and mine was covered by Medicare.

    Just has Transplant and Medicare covered that too.

    Have a grant for prescriptions and that pays the cost of most of my Medicare co-pays. Also pays for my monthly Medicare payments, monthly prescription for RX and my supplemental.
    The above I believe is only offered when you get a transplant.
    At the moment we are only living in Social Security so we qualified for grants. You can still own a house and get these grants, they only take SS into account.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks Kathleen and Cliff. I appreciate your guidance. Glad to hear there is help down the line when I begin treatment.

    Mine was paid for by grants. You can also look up Patient Advocate Foundation they can offer some assistance in grants or co-pays also.

    Thanks Lisa for your input
