The Cost of Progress


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Medical therapies are getting better as a natural progression of medical science continues. Various organ transplants costs over $500,000 and heart transplant will run you $750,000 but the real wow factor is seen in the Wall Street Journal –  Immunotherapy is the new kid on the block. It is being recognized as a wonder treatment after conventional therapies have nose-dived. The catch, and there always seems to be one, is that immunotherapy costs over a $1,000,000. The copays would be horrendous.

Also, your physician who knows your financial status could take the situation at hand and omit immunotherapy. Or you might be forced to consider the cost to seriously impact you and especially your spouse. If you have Medicare as primary consider a secondary insurance to neutralize copays and protect yourself.
