Cost of Antirejection Drugs for patients under age 65
Right now, Medicare will pay for the cost of anti-rejection drugs for people under the age of 65 for only 3 years. So if you're 58 and you get a transplant, by age 61 you have to pay for them yourself. That means that you should look into having not only a good health insurance plan but in addition, one with a good drug coverage plan.
Being prepared is the best medicine.

Reason: The information I initially found regarding costs for anti-rejection drugs was inaccurate - needed to be corrected.
Right now, I have Medicare and Medicaid with a buy-in. I paid maybe $13 this first month for my meds. Once I go back to my job, I'll have that as secondary insurance. After the three year limit, I will have to find a health plan from the market.
