I was wondering what everyone is paying for this new drug, the type of insurance you have, especially if you don't have insurance, and also the co-pay.I have CTcare, and it does NOT pay for it, in a way which I don't understand. I called and asked them, they said we don't pay anything on that paticular medication, but we do pay some. That makes no sense to me at all. Either they pay or they don't. I did some thinking......I came up with this. Since they don't pay for it, and the pharmacist said it would cost $80.00 without insurance, I pay a "co-pay" of $40.oo, so does this mean that the insurance co. pays nothing at all, after all, that's the way they put it. Could be that's what it costs the pharmacy, with a little more added on for their part in making a few bucks.I also feel for those who don't have insurance......the insurance companies do not pay full price, and the person with insurance pays a co-pay, which more then likely covers most of the drug. No if one doesn't have insurance, they have to pay "full" price. This is, no way, fair. Now, understand, this is only on the new meds that are just coming out. I do have co-pays of $7.00, $10.00, and $15.00. I take Zomig for my migraines, (it works wonders for me) I pay $15.00 for it. I am only allowed 9 pills each 30 days. So that means my insurance co. only pays for 4 and a half migraines. I get them just about every other day. I have to dish out $198.00 for 9 pills. Don't get me wrong, it's well worth it, when I am having a migraine, but after it's gone, I freak out.
