I can't help but ask : what insurance company part D helps cover its cost?
No Oxycontin brand name is the only long acting oxycodone there is no generics. It is not Medicare that wont cover it, it is your carrier for your Part D that wont cover. Some plans do cover it. The insurance company I work for does cover it but at a Tier 3 high copay and is not eligible for exception for payment at a lower tier (and we are a carrier for Medicare) so it is your plan and not Medicare that doesnt cover it. MSContin is fairly comparable to Oxycontin as far as pain relief and there are a lot of generics for MSContin (morphine)
