some insurances will NOT pay for 2 a day of certain drugs-thats a different issue
This is a recent conge that I discussed with physician by secure email. I will see how it is filled/charged, then discuss the issue with her for the next time.
A few years aoo, different drug - different physician - different insurance, I was taking 50 mg/day of a drug. I was charged brand name for the drug. I asked the ins co why I did not get a lower price. The said there was a generic. Then I asked why I did not get the lower rice generic, then. They said all they had in generic was 25 mg pills. Then I aid, then give me 2 25 mg pills at the generic price. No, they said, it wasn't written that way. SO, I just asked the Dr to write the Rx for 2 - 25 mg per day, I got the generic at the low price ad everyone was happy. The ins co rules, Rx rules and other rules can be very puzzling.
