Oh brother... That sucks Steph. You all need to move up here to Canada and use our healthcare system. $32 bucks a month, everything is taken care of except the drugs and ambulance trips. I'm pretty lucky. My hubby's insurance plan pays for 80% of my meds. I don't have anything that costs what you have to pay though. UGH, that is brutal.
Steph, you have to do what you have to do. If it means getting your hubby to find a plan for students, DO IT. Do whatever you have to to make sure you get your meds. Sit down and brainstorm, we will too! Can you double up your coverage by both of you getting a plan? I wish I knew the U.S. "stuff". I don't have a lot of advice for you except that. Sorry! I know this is stressful. I don't know how you guys do it every month. Even with my meds, I pay out of pocket about $200 a month. That's nothing. I can't imagine how I'd be able to make ends meet shelling out thousands. I'd be homeless... UGH. Depressing, okay, enough of that.
Keep us posted on this Steph okay.
