My pharmacist told me the price (without insurance) was $87.50! I nearly swallowed my tongue! That is outrageous! And the only insurance I have is Medicare and a supplement. If they don't pay, I will have to skip the colonoscopy. I am on a very fixed income. What have some of you had to pay for this stuff?

If it is not covered, ask your Dr if you can use some other prep. My husbands Dr put him on a clear liquid diet and he was to dissolve an entire bottle of Miralax in a certain amount of gatorade, a gallon if I remember right then had a schedule for drinking it along with four dulcolax at bedtime and he was quite well cleaned out. If it is too expensive, tell the doc to prescribe something less expensive or you will forgo the test plain and simple. They all have favorite preps they just automatically prescribe without thinking about the cost to the poor patient. In fact, most probably have NO idea how much stuff costs. Bring it to his attention and tell him you cant pay that kind of money for a prep! I assure you there are other cheaper options.
