... the high prices for other drugs looks like they would be glad your drug cost had fallen $2000.00 a month but i've been told by one of my friends he ended up in the ER because it took so long to get his pain meds approved that he went into withdrawls and almost went into cardiac arrest and he was on oxy's and roxy's and they put him on opana's and they were like $1,700.00 cheaper.Why is this does anyone know?

Hi little joe: The Opana ER is not any cheaper, for 60 30mg they cost over $600 & 120 40mg it's over $1,000. I guess it depends on which medicare drug insurance company a person has to see which drugs they'll pay for or not.
Every insurance company has a prestablished formulary on their website so a client can check ahead of time to see if it will be covered or not, etc. It so happens that mine does cover it (Atena).
