... since roughly 2001. Medicare switched me to a new plan for 2013, since my old plan's prices have gone way up (I get extra help, due to finances, so money IS a big issue). Unfortunately, my new plan does not cover Advair, and I'm clueless as to what else will work in maintaining the status quo of my lungs. I only have a pain mgmt doctor presently, and he is happy to prescribe my asthma medication for me... I just don't have any idea what I should request to replace my Advair! I just can't afford to get a second doctor, pay the additional co-pay for office visits, etc
