I need guidance, please. I found out I'm now in the "donut hole" for my prescriptions (I'm on a Medicare Plan), and now I can't afford my insulins. Sadly, as soon as the agencies I was referred to heard how much mine and my husband's Social Security amounts were (never taking into consideration the fact we have a mortgage, car payment, utilities that have all gone up or are new), they basically say I'm too "rich" to ask for help. This has me so frightened, especially because I was recently in the hospital for severe Ketoacidosis. I don't want to go back there! I thought of the drug companies (I take two different kinds of insulin, plus an oral medication), but there, too, I'm afraid I won't qualify for help.
I am on Lantus (vial) and Humialog.
Does anyone have any suggestions, please??? I'm really stressed out over this.
