There are very few, but Massachusetts is one of them (phew!). Although there is a hitch - it has to be a Massachusetts based insurance co. (i.e., your policy has to be written in MA). If it is an out-of-state insurer, they do not have to cover it. Fortunately, I have an HMO based in MA. I know I'm lucky here, but there's enough stress in this process without the financial aspect. Extra kudos and hugs to those many who go through this on their own dollar.

Illinois has a state mandate but like MA if the insurance policy was written out of state they don't have to cover you. That's my case (UniCare). Luckily, my husband's insurance will pay 80% of customary and reasonable. But they wouldn't cover the drugs.
