I’d like to quit my job for a year or more, take out loans, and go to nursing school to become an RN or get a teaching credential. I looked into a school in the Bay Area where I could get a teaching credential. When I asked what kind of insurance coverage they have, I was told that they may be able to cover 80% of Rx costs. With Gleevec retailing at about $24,000/month, I’m looking at paying $4800/month for my meds. Multiply that by 12 months, and it’s almost $60,000 for my meds alone, not to mention taking out loans for tuition and living costs. Is there any possible way for me to go to school and get my Rx for Gleevec covered?
