I was on lexapro for a few years until my medicial card would no longer cover it. After a loss of two sons (one at at 20 in 2000) & my youngerest at the age of 24 in 2009. Lexapro helped me deal with communation with family & friends. Why can't they make a generic on this??Or least have our medical pay for it when people need it!!!
Have you talked to your insurance company? Sometimes they may just need prior authorization. Prior auth can have different requirements. You can ask the insurance company what they require for prior auth. They should be able to tell you why they wont cover. If there is a generic made, many insurances will pay for the generic but not the brand name. There should be a customer services or member services number on your card. Call them and find out why it is not covered and if there is anything you or your Dr can do to get it covered. Very sorry to hear about your loss. I dont think there is anything more devastating to a parent then the loss of a child.
