Medicare refusing cancer drugs

When my husband was first diagnosed with thymus cancer after it was removed and we started chemo his oncologist told us that one of the chemo drugs he wanted to use Medicare refused to authorize it. Has anyone had the same experience. He now has stage 4 bone cancer, is dying and I wonder if we could have prevented this with the use of this 2nd drug.
