Just curious, does anyone know? We are switching in Feb to a plan that has a 3 tier list, At first, I was elated, all our meds, insulin and test equip was tier 1 (lowest co pay) on last years list, this years list wasn't available. Well, just went back and checked this year's list. Ouch, unless we switch to Humalog insulin (from Novolog), and I was considering switching to the new bayer USB meter, but since the test strips are tier 3, AND supply limited (which I think means they are going to want me to send in BG logs every 3 months to ensure I am using the quantity the Dr writes for), I think I'll just stay put with the one touch system I've been using for years.
Just Curious, is this something we're going to need to keep looking at year after year? My older daughter already deals with a lot of site issues, is there any way I can appeal Novaog's non preferred status since it does have a different formulation than humalog and I think using humalog is going to make her site issue worse, or am I just going to be stuck paying a LOT of money for her insulin since, after all, they're not saying she can't use it, it's just not the preferred brand.
