When comparing drug companies on the Medicare part d web site I noticed that some companies are vastly different for some drugs. For instance the full cost of the drug Duloxetine HCL 30 mg is $732, $247, $361 for three different companies. I can see some difference but this is obviously screwed up. So how can someone objectively make a decision based on these kind of numbers.
Costs are ridicules. Distributors negotiate costs, and that makes a diff in what the final cost is. One company would give them the better price then others and that is who he would buy from. This has nothing to do with part D. Your decision is what part D will cost you least. What are your copays. It doesn't matter what the drug costs, what matters is what you have to pay for it. I have found ones that my meds would cost me 48 a month, and ones that they'd cost me 124, you can bet which one I'd go with. The part D I have has gone nuts and moved one of my old generics to tier 4. You can bet I'm not sticking with them. They've also made tier 2 cost a 35 co pay, that sure isn't happening when I take all generics, and old ones at that.
