My Rx is How Much?

December 8th, 2010 at 09:05 pm

I just experienced sticker shock at the pharmacy. I have a new Rx from my doctor, it is one I will be taking from now on. After insurance, my cost is $127.51. Yikes! I asked if there is a generic, there is not. The pharmacist suggested my doctor could prescribe something similar. I hope so, because it is not life or death so I am not paying $127.51 every month for it. I left the pharmacy without it.

I did pick up my other Rx ($10, now that's more like it) and 2 bottles of conditioner on sale, as well as an over-the-counter allergy medication and 2 pair of mittens. Grand total $35.96.

I did not go out for lunch. Again! Smile

    Yikes! That is an expensive one. I do hope there is an alternative.

    Unfortunately things like this are a frequent occurrence. I would recommend talking to you doctor to see if there is another alternative. I may be useful to take in a copy of your insurance company's formulary (it's a list of what medications they cover, what tier they are, and what cost they will be). Unfortunately each insurance company is different and it's hard for doctors to know how much each medication will cost each patient.
