... one script is for 180 but insurance will only pay for 120 pills. Am I allowed to pay for the remaining number of pills?? If I didn't have insurance I would be paying for the entire prescription and not part of it
You can ask your pharmacy to ruin the 120 thru the insurance and give you the rest for cash. You can also call your insurance and ask how you would petition to get the rest paid for if you need 180 a month.
Most insurances will only pay for 30 day supplies. Yes, you have the option of paying cash for the rest. Why does he write for more than 30 days worth? Most docs are well aware that insurances only pay for 30 day supplies. Some will pay for 90 day supplies too but it doesnt sound like he is writing a 90 day supply either. Seems very strange. The pharmacy could dispense the 120 and save the rest and then dispense the other 60 after 30 days but you would likely pay the same copay for the 60 as you do the 120. but, yes, they are yours and you do have the option of paying cash for the rest of the prescription.
I'm not sure if that insurance covers a 21 days.Maybe it is the type of drug it is, that they only allow 21 days at a time. Mine, in the maintenance,, which is what it sounds like what he gave you, it goes through the mail & the copay is so much better than getting it locally 30 days @ a time. Some scripts they only do a 30 day supply anymore though.
No, you are NOT allowed to pay for part of the Rx! Either you must accept the amount the ins covers or pay for full amount of Rx!
