In brief: Yes
Bicalutamide is standard for men with prostate cancer progressing after initial castrating therapy (medical or surgical).
Some doctors prefer to use it with initial therapy (dual blockade) while others use it sequentially. Details are here: http://bit.Ly/loybx2.

But "Medicare" coverage may depend on what Part D plan you selected. The drug is indicated in some cases, but the coverage (payment) is not uniform.
