I was just wondering if anyone didn't have insurance and had to pay for their meds out of pocket?
Our new insurance for 2009 has a very low monthly cost through my husbands work, and they give each famiily $1000 for the year. After this point, the consumer must pay out of pocket the next $2000 at which point traditional health care coverage kicks in.
When we signed up for this option, it sounded great. They give you $1000 - that should last a while, right?
I got my first 90 d prescription of my Asacol, and it used up 2/3 of the $1000 allottment. This was "my bad" having not considered prescriptions at the time of choosing our health plan.
That being said, I am astonished that after being on the market as long as it has been, Asacol has no generic version yet????
So I was wondering how anyone could pay for this out of pocket??? Thos w/out health insurance, or job loss etc.
I had no idea through the years that I was paying (through ins) $4k on this maintence drug. It's astounding and eye opening.
