I am diabetic and am on insulin. Medicare wants me to use generics. I would like to know why there is no generic for insulin? I think insuling is very lucrative for the health care industry.
I went to renew my prescription for my Levemir Flexpen, and lo and behold, I'm in the doughnut hole. I didn't even last six months of the year and now the cost for a 90-day supply went from an $80 copay to $604.50.
I'd say something is wrong because I only got a 2 percent COLA raise. Is the added Flexpen cost a 2 percent increase? I can't get any help because I make too much money. Somebody's head is in the sand.
I take seven other meds and my choice is groceries or meds.
Never miss a local story.
Don't get old. The government is wanting old people to die so they won't get the benefits they worked for all their lives. I feel like I have a target on my back because I'm a senior.
