is this covered by Humana drug plan?

Any time you have questions on any kind of medical coverage provided by your insurance company, call the customer services or members services number on your card. It is usually on the back of the card but it might be on the front. They will tell you anything you want to know about coverage. As a matter of fact, I would advise that you call before any known upcoming procedures, that way you dont get surprise bills after the fact. Dont rely totally on your Drs office to check coverage. You will sign a waiver before a procedure that states you are responsible for anything not covered by your insurance. They will also tell you about medication coverage and will tell you exactly how much medicines will cost you out of packet and also if there is any prior authorization necessary. This way you know if any possible delays may be upcoming before you start a medication.
Prior auth can take a while in some cases so if you start with samples then find out you need prior auth, you will have a gap in your medication therapy unless the Dr can give you more samples while the prior auth is being processed. It is a good resource and that is what it is there for. Utilize it for your best knowledge.

I have Humana insurance and I take Cymbalta. It is covered by my policy, but I pay $20 for it as opposed to the $10 I would pay for a generic drug. You can go to the Cymbalta website and print out a coupon for a free month's supply. You can also go to a website called internetdrugcoupons.com, put Cymbalta into the search box and get a coupon for another free months supply. Hope this helps you.
