 Gleostine, also known as CCNU and Lomustine, will no longer be covered under Medicare.  The drug company does offer an assistance program at 

  and there are discount coupons available on Goodrx.Com

But this type of problem is not acceptable. The way drugs are paid for has to be completely overhauled.  Gleostine is one of the oldest drugs.  It is only going to get worse as each new generation of treatment comes out, they will be exponentially expensive.  Unless we make changes now. The Promising Pathway Bill should put a brake on the price increases.
