I would consider contacting the company that manufactures the drug. They have a patient assistance program and I'm pretty sure their experts can discuss with you what medicare will cover and what it wont- which may help you decide what plan to select. And if there is anything out of pocket they also have assistance programs that help people pay as little out of pocket (or zero out of pocket) as possible. I just Googled Pfizer's info for Xalkori
1-855-XALKORI (1-855-925-5674) Monday through Friday between 8 AM and 8 PM ET.
Hope this helps!
