Hey there. What I didn't notice hidden in the fine print when I signed up for "Obamacare"s plan that I could afford was some rx wont be covered until my deductible is met. Some are, for ex my rx for lisinopril was $1.50 copay. My Lantus Pen…$350.00!! I almost died of a heart attack at that news. So…I have been searching to see if there is any individual supplement prescription insurance I could buy in hopes of lowering that cost. There is no way I can afford that price. Do any of you fine folks know of a supplement rx insurance an individual can buy?

Try Patient Assisstance123. 1-888-507-9123
You pay an enrollment fee. Then it's $50.00 per month for all rx' s , including Novalog, Lantus, ability, etc.
Please call them. Calayx .I've told many people about this but never heard any replies.

With whom is your insurance, name of the company?

I queried Google on "supplement insurance companies" and the results are as follows ~

Not sure as to whether there is any useful info for you there. I am not much into health insurance and currently have a medicare suppliment plan through Humana.

Praying you get it sorted out fo your benefit
