Topic: No drugs approved by the FDA for CC
Talked to Mom's oncologist today about the fact that she had to sign a waiver to get Oxaliplatin. The waiver said that she would pay for the drug if her insurance (Medicare/ Anthem) would not pay. Her oncologist said that this is pretty common, and that she will just have to write a letter to them saying that this drug is necessary. The problem is that there are no real drugs "approved" by the FDA for cholangiocarcinoma. Just wanted to fill in everyone on this information in case you run into the problem. Sounds like the drs can do the trick.
