Interesting the issue is with Great West. They just participated in the CCFC education symposium (in Toronto) where they talked about how they cover biologics on most plans. The woman was mosthy there to tell us to shop around to different pharmacies because the price is different whether you go to a Shoppers, Wal-Mart, Rexall, Costco, etc. I never thought about shopping around for lower prices.
I am glad they finally 'got it' harbinson66, and I totally get the stress. mtooke keep trying with the insurance company. Tell your doctor too, as sometimes the orders of why they are suggesting one med over another isnt clear. Insurance thinks they know better, but remember they are all in it to make $ somehow. Trying to still figure out how a paper pusher with maybe a 3-4 year degree would know more than a doctor who goes to school for 8-12 years, but still the paper pusher rules....
