My daughter's doctor wants to put her on a specific med. It can be generic. I went to fill the script and insurance does not cover the Generic version. They will only cover the brand name if the dr puts Brand Name necessary on the the script. But brand name isn't necessary. They would rather pay over 2000.00on a brand name than a couple hundred on generic. I just don't get the logic.
That sounds fishy...Maybe your pharmacy is staffed by numb-nuts. Some of the Walgreens around here are bad about insurance stuff. I will never go to the one on KW drive again. Maybe paying out of pocket for the generic costs less than a generic throug your insurance. I have had that happen too.
well i will be glad to trade you insurance companies...lol...mine is $5 generics but the medicine I am on the generic makes me sick (which it has been known to) so I am stuck paying $67 for a brand name that costs $85 without insurance...you might try walmart or CVS and see what they say. good luck!!!
We only go to CVS. Walmart is horrible and never has her meds. I have the same issue with Walgreens that Topcat has. They never run my insurance through. We pay out of pocket for some of her meds already, might have to do it with this one also.
I also use krogers pharmacy, I hate Walgreen the staff are beyond incompetent, I have never gone there ad had them fill the prescription correctly, they would always give me a completely different medication and I would have to argue with the idiots that its not my medicine. They can seriously hurt someone this way, like if the person does not check the bottle and just takes the pills and it ends up being something they cant have.
I like the neighborhood Walmart for my RX's. The staff use to be better, they do have new people and they suck. They are rude and some have no clue what they are doing. But I still like them better than most.
If they don't have a certain RX they usually get it for me by the next day.
