My mother recently went to her physician and was told that she would need to obtain the prolia injection herself from the pharmacy rather than them paying for it because they have had problems with reimbursement if they order and pay for the injection. She checked her last insurance information and found that between Medicare and supplemental insurance, the doctor was reimbursed for approx. $1400.00. Is this common?
That is probably for the administration too. You can contact medicare and ask them. I didin't think that medicare itself would pay for it, I would think that's part D. It will pay for the office visit I know, but the medication? Something could have changed with medicare this year too, there have been many changes made.
