How Much Does Chemo Therapy And Radiation Therapy Cost?

Postby chonen » Sat Sep 30, 2017 4:21 pm

For the treatments by themselves.
Per treatment.
And before insurance steps in.
This is for somebody-a coworker-who has aggressive lung cancer and the tumor is too big to operate on and we are organizing several fund raisers.
I am not sure how many treatments he is going to need and it is going to be done in NY (upstate) I hear the costs vary state by state.
He does have insurance I am trying to figure out how much out of pocket he will have to pay for each session,

How Much Does Chemo Therapy And Radiation Therapy Cost?

Postby Japhet » Sat Sep 30, 2017 4:30 pm

My treatments were 5 years ago but I'll tell you the radiation (32x) was $56,000 and chemo (8x) was like $70,000 if I remember right.
This was for breast though; I have no idea what lung treatment involves.
There are tons of different chemo drugs so it's hard to say.
I also had 6 hospitalizations due to surgery and complications and I estimated the whole deal was about $600,000.
After insurance I might have paid about $4,000.
For your friend, it really depends what kind of treatments and what kind of insurance they have.

Radiation WITH Insurance cost me 10,000.00......I had 6 weeks worth of it, so I am not sure what each individual treatment will cost...
