Has anyone experienced high prices with Xeloda and Tykerb?

Has anyone experienced high prices with Xeloda and Tykerb?

My oncologist wants to move my treatment to Xeloda and Tykerb. I am stage 4 and nothing to this point has really worked. So she wants to try these drugs. My insurance company (AARP United Healthcare) told me Xeloda is not covered and would cost me around $8000 per month. Tykerb is covered but is an additional $2000 per month. Is anyone on these drugs and how are you paying for them? Any help would be appreciated.
