My insurance will not cover my Viagra? the Dr even asked if they could write a letter to explain why I should have it covered. They said that it doesn't matter. I have good insurance Blue cross Blue shield Federal plan but they wont do this. Does anybody have any ideas? I thought that maybe I should ask the Drs ofice who ther rep is and ask if they have any programs. I am not low income but at $120 for 10 pills it gets expensive, and I have enough other medical and pharm bills .
shocked
Thanks for any help you guys have at 48 I do not want to give up yet but I guess I am cheap

The most popular source on this board is ADC (All Day Chemist) in India. Use search to find lots of experience (almost all good) with them

Timmy77, I agree with geezer99 and goodlife. Alldaychemist is an good source for ED drugs. I placed an order for Levitra a couple of times. Fast delivery and no problems. Their generic Levitra works just like the name brand. tongue

Its funny how the "Blue's" are all different. I have Highmark Blue and they cover Viagra (#6/28 days) for a $30.00 co-pay (you get one month free out of three months if you purchase through Medco). Highmark Blue does not cover Cialis or Levitra. I will be trying the All day chemist in the near future, where the cost is ridiculously low. I prefer a Cialis-type generic.

Cilalis is a legal problem. You have to sign a statement sysimg it will not be used in the U.S. I have a problem with that. Just my luck , already missing my prostate, they'll decide to prosecute me. Without a leg to stand on ( little joke), I'm sunk.

If you have a moral problem with saying that you will consume the Cilalis outside of the U.S. then that is between you and God to work out. If your problem is legal then you should start visiting travel websites. Start thinking about a dream vacation abroad. Look at prices, try out itineraries – I would bet that at some point you will decide that such a vacation is your choice and at that point you can tell ADC that you intend to consume them outside of the U.S. If you change your mind about the trip, you can always flush them down the toilet.
My desire to visit Europe is growing and I am quite sure that by the time my order arrives I will have made reservations and be nearly ready to depart.

P.S. Only take legal advice from a lawyer, not from a fool. (assuming the sets are disjoint)

Be sure and pump your uro for samples every time you go in. They get them by the case.

I just realized that I said something confusing to anyone paying attention about the generic Viagra. Anyone who reads my sig. sees that no ED drugs work for me, so my telling Timmy that the generic works as well as the namebrand is confusing. What I mean to say is the side effects that is received from the name brand is the same as I get from the generic. No sexual response, just the strength and length of the flushed face, burning eyes, etc. symptoms. Sorry for any confusion caused... smilewinkgrin

Nope, I gather that it is for enlarging and lengthening, not for arousal, though. I admire ole Bob, but am not so sure his herbal methodology will work.. smilewinkgrin

Each time I go to my GP or urologist, I ask for ED pill samples. The drug reps usually keep the docs supplied with samples. My Uro. sometimes has none left, but my GP always has them. He told me he had plenty of Leverta 10mg (1/2 regular dose) and I was welcome to lots of them. I get Cialis and Viagra also. That's what I am using right now , until I run out and/or I get back to him for more. The guys here have learned to ask their docs for the sample packs, its free and usually easy to get from their docs.

This is also the cheapest way to find out which drug works for you.
