I am currently taking Mepron and my insurance is covering it, thank goodness!
But I understand your problems....I had to stop my IV Rocephin because my state disability payments have stopped too (hopefully temporarily!). It was costing me over $2000 per month because my insurance (BC) denied me.
From another forum, a thread on finding the best prices for meds: San Ramon Custom Care Pharmacy (Formerly Medicine Shoppe)
They have the lowest price I could find for Zithromax, Avelox, Clindamycin and a very competitive price for Rocephin. They have great customer service too. If you're not picky about how many vials you receive in each package, they'll go looking for the cheepest supplier per vial for you. Ask to speak to the owners if you have a really complicated order.
Some other good places to try:
Costco Pharmacy (Best out of pocket price on Invanz)
You don't need to have one of these stores in your area to order from them, they should all be able to ship to you from their closest store. Costco pharmacy is open to non-members.

Yes. I'm currently taking Mepron and Ceftin and it is covered by my insurance. I really don't know what the limits are on my prescription drug coverage, but so far they haven't rejected any claims. I should probably find out because my LLMD wants me to go back on IV-Rocephin and my Neurologist wants me to consider IVIG. I understand that both of these treatments are expensive.
Good Luck with your treatment.
Peace and Healing
