Why Medicare-D plans suck, reason #47

Posted Jan 27 2009 4:35pm
Let's say that Mrs Patient has been receiving pantoprazole for the past year and paying a $7.00 copay.

Now that a new year has started, her Medicare D plan has decided that they will only cover the brand name Protonix. And as an added bonus, Mrs Patient's copay is now $38.00.

We all know that by altering the formulary, the Medicare D plan is weaseling its way out of paying for the medication* and getting Mrs Patient to the donut hole that much faster.

Thank you, Big Time Insurance Company.

You suck.

*the net cost to the insurance company is less in this scenario. If you need an explanation, email me.
