I am new to the group and caretaker for my husband who has type 2 diabetes as well as other health problems. He was in the research study for bydureon and the drug controled his diabetes wonderfully well. But now that it is on the market it is so costly that he cant continue to take it. Our medicare insurance plan will not pay for it and we are the the catch-22 gap meaning that our income is not low enough to qualify for the financial help plan which the bydureon company does generously offer but due to the other expensive medications my husband must take for heart condition, etc. we still cannot afford the bydureon. I believe someone mentioned that their insurance covered the drug. Could someone send me the name of an insurance company which does cover bydureon. This is the time of the year when we coulld change insurance plans if we could find one that could help us here.
