It turns out that if my insurance company covers a medication,
there's a price cap on it, which keeps it to ridiculously expensive
(as opposed to "ludicrously expensive"). Turns out that without that
cap, the price goes up an extra 27%. This morning, I spent $253.00
on a one-month supply.
I had to get special approval for this medicine from my insurance
company. Had they refused to cover it, it would cost me $3,036/year.
This is, by the way, a medication intended to -supplement- the
effects of my other medication.
Did I mention that, on top of this, I pay out of pocket for my insurance?
