So because my husband is on disability now and they canceled my medicaid, medicare told me based on this and other matters I will lose my extra help for meds starting in January. Called them and the pharmacy and figured out I will need 23% of $1411.00/month for abilify and believe me I don’t have it. Have no idea what I am going to do unless I find a better job which i tried to for a long time. Does anyone else suffer with this high of copays? I always said if I ever went off of meds it should be because I chose to or because my doctor chose for me to, not because i didn’t have the money. At least they give me time to figure it out, but it is depressing.
Correct me if I am wrong, but, wouldn’t losing your job make you eligible for medicaid again. I mean, you have to have your medication.
Are you in the US? Wondering if you were able to get into the Affordable Care Act…
wow i never knew psych meds were that expensive
Apparently the Supreme Court struck down the Affordable Care provision that granted anyone at poverty level access to medicaid. It’s state-by-state. I.e. some states will provide medicaid if you’re at poverty level and some won’t. (Florida, where I live, doesn’t, unless you’re on disability).
Haldol is the cheapest anti-psychotic I know about. $7 for a month’s supply without insurance.
You can buy cheap medication sometimes directly from pharmaceutical companies.
I was counting on that for retirement!
Have to check that out for Ky.
Really ignorant on this stuff!
