This prescription cost gonna make me rob somebody, watch!
A month ago I had the shock of my life when I rolled up to the drive through window (y’all got a drive through pharmacy right?) to pick up my son’s prescription and the cost had gone up tenfold literally. He’s been taking this particular medication for at least a year now and our copay is typically $5 (I was wrong in the video, it’s $5). I roll up that day and they hit me with “$50 ma’am”.
FIFTY DOLLARS?!! Say what say who say WHAT?!
Now I’m not the criminal type, but I may have to reconsider. Do they realize that they just tried to tell me that instead of paying $60 a year for this prescription I’d be paying SIX HUNDRED DOLLARS per year? Did they? Did they?!!!
Unfortunately I paid for it, changed my mind, tried to return it immediately and these bustas wouldn’t take it back because you can’t return a Rx once it’s left their hands. *insert EPIC SIDE EYE here oh wait I got a smiley for that*
So, make sure to to check out the video above to see my real time reaction to the fact that I may have to find a corner to stroll to pay for my son’s medication, either that or the gas stations in my area may become targets … I’m just saying.
Oh and as an update, as of this week when I thought I’d worked out the entire thing with my insurance, getting an override and refund of the $45 extra I paid and promise it would be $5 going forward, I pull up to the drive through and they buss out with $40.
FORTY MONKEY FLIPPIN BONES!!! Say what say who say WHAT?!
After an HOUR AND A HALF on the phone with my insurance provider, my pharmacy, and company we’re insured via I gave up and am at the same spot. My son’s therapist said we can try him off the meds, or I may find some natural remedies and see if they give similar results with significant savings. #yallpray
These people want me to become a criminal. (I’m fully award that the smilie *may* be a ninja but I’m to ticked to care right now #focus)
