Experimental drug therapy is costly, but sometimes it’s a patient’s only hope.
Musicologist Bill Dudley, who usually talks with KFWB’s Maggie McKay and Michael Shappee about music, has the story of a paramedic who is dealing with alternative drugs and the financial consequences.
Also in the report is Dr. Joan Mortimer, director of the women’s cancer program at City of Hope. She explains why experimental drugs are not covered by insurance.
