Hello community of experts. . .
I dropped the ball on this topic and not up to date.
I am T1 with 11 yr old out of warranty T-slim pump not in use doing MDI at the moment and playing catchup. Poor control I am embarrassed to admit.
Pharmacist said can’t verify the new $35/month and until putting new script through. Several said never heard of it and do insulin script every day. I am going there shortly to drop off a new script and we’ll see in a couple of days when it’s ready.
By tonight I am completely out of insulin and have to figure out something immediately.
My copay had been running over a grand per month. Called my insurance company today and held for 3 hours to ask, then call got disconnected. Called back and held for over another hour before I hung up.
In other news. . . two years ago I D/C’d insulin pump use after giving up on finding anybody near me or by mail to fill insulin scripts under part B for use in a pump. Initially I had a place doing it then they stopped. To my knowledge nobody is doing it in my State (Florida) despite people here saying they get it that way. That’s a side bar issue.
I can always use the OTC cheap R from WulMurt for a day or two. My insurance is an advantage plan. My concern is that maybe I have to “opt in” or some other gotchya snag which I likely scr*wed up to get the $35 copay.
I just hope this works out smoothly for those of us who end up in the donut hole the first week of each new year.
Insulin for $35/mon copay seems like the impossible dream.
What’s the deal?
