I just went to see my NEW shrink today and he decided to put me back on Abilify and Lexapro combination.Which was a combination that I took before that helped quite well.What I don't understand is.Why did they approve the Abilify?Which was $608.99 for a 30 day supply but they didn't APPROVE the Lexapro.They gave me the actual real bottle that the abilify was in too.I got the Real Version (NO GENERIC).I got the bottle from the actual pharmacutical company.They charged my insurance $608.99 for that CRAP!!! I wouldn't have minded the GENERIC version.They do have a Generic 2.So don't tell me they don't but what I don't understand is.Why didn't my Lexapro go through??My insurance is probably flipping out because they just got charged $608.99 for 30 FREAKING PILLS.
hi,first why did your insurance company not ok 1 and not the other.there are lots of reasons they would deny anything you may have to get a priorapproval from your insurance company.and as far as the 600 $ your insurance doesn't pay anyone full price.when i was on kadian 60 of them cost $922.00. now im on suboxone witch costs $6.00 a pill. insurance companies get a brake cause they are doing business in volume. call your doc back and tell him to find the reason why pharmacies don't cover both.if your getting all of the bottle of pills,you get the insert with all the information on it from inside the bottle.
As much as I hate to say this, that's a question only the insurance jerks can answer. I hate insurance. I'm so jealous you have it. I need it and can't get insurance b/c of my pre-existing condition. *sigh* And my COBRA is $620 a month - tell me how exactly a single person that's been unemployed for almost 3 months and is running out of money so fast it gives me nightmares (and what unemployment pays is a joke - doesn't even cover the basics - rent & bills - let alone anything else, like food . . .
But if this is any sort of answer to your question - all I can say is that you gotta call the stupid insurance company and find out what the deal is. Best of luck!!
