High deductible

Does anybody have a high deductible insurance that make your meds way too expensive in the first half of the year?
Im taking paliperidone that I was paying just a couple bucks for and now the through the mail company that my insurer wants me to use, has informed me that this prescription is currently at $250+ per month because its the start of a new year.
I believe that paliperidone is already the generic form if invega. Does anybody have any insight on ridiculous pharma pricing?

Yes that’s happens to me. We have to pay $2000 out of pocket before they pay for the rest of the year. We use the FSA card to help.

I pay for 24 meds per month. It really adds up for us. I wish medication was free for everyone.

I think even fair pricing would make a big difference.

Absolutely. Even my insulin is $100 per month. I need it to live. It shouldn’t be this expensive.
