Today wasn't a good day for me personally. I got hit with a rejection that hurt.
After that, I had to motivate to go to the pharmacy to pick up my prescription for medication I have to take. I also just order insulin when I order this other stuff.
Anyway, my insurance pays most but I have to pay for 25% of the cost. With four bottles of Humalog at $843.00 total, I pay for $150 of that.
It's not pretty but it is what it is. I need it to live and thank goodness that I can afford it.
The pharmacist is ringing me up, looks at the price and says "Humalog is expensive!" I just look at him like "what the hell?"
It was just insensitive. I don't think I'll complain, but really? You're a pharmacist. This is your job to dispense medication and do so, hopefully, in a way that's sensitive to the people you serve. I live with this damn disease everyday, and I've been uninsured before too. I KNOW Humalog as well as everything else that goes with insulin dependent diabetes is expensive. I try to stay on top of it because being hospitalized is also expensive and death, well, that's the worst.
I understand that he wasn't trying to offend me, but my God, really?
