Poll: Money spent on meds

@Wildflower08 didn’t put an actual poll in her thread so I thought I would create one.

How much are your meds?
  • My meds are free
  • I feel the price is reasonable

I usually only have to pay a small amount for meds. I’ve been ending up paying for diabetes testing(testing strips, the little needle inserts) supplies myself , though. I also only pay a small portion of doctors visits and such. I’m on Medicare with parts A, B and D, with a private insurance company for the D part. It’s usually pretty fair IMO, and the bills I do get don’t put too much of a strain on my finances.

I have 3 meds: Invega, clozapine, Wellbutrin.

I pay about 20€ a month. I find that to be a reasonable price.

Yeah. That’s a really cheap med. I’m glad it helps you at such a low cost

I voted “free” although they are not. It’s just that I’m not the one who pays for them. 100% covered between mine and my wife’s work benefits.

Most of my meds cost $1.35 for a monthly supply, which I find very affordable.

Thanks for the poll. I pay $197 a month for health and drug insurance, and my copay’s on my prescriptions run $25 to $30 a month. I feel like I’m ripped off, but for others it may be worse.

My meds have always been free. Except in one instance.

Normal lorazepam was free but sublingual was out of pocket. I think I paid around $27 for 30 1mg pills a few times.

If I told my doctor to prescribe me the normal kind they would have been free, but I got the sublingual ones because they were faster acting.

Well technically not free, paid for by the government which in turn is paid for by our taxes.
