Some people on here have not had the gene mutation test and are or have been on Tarceva. Is the gene mutation mandatory only by the insurance companies to approve it for first or second line? I thought .. Tarceva was approved now for a first line treatment. My mothers Oncologist is still saying second line. Or the insurance won't pay. But.. I read first line now.
If you refuse gene mutation test.. does that mean they won't put the patient on Tarceva?
