I need help with a Plan "D" plan for my first enrollment into Medicare. I'm going through/getting help through a non-profit to help find the best plans/best cost, but the Azilect seems to be a sticking point. The Plan "D" drug plan is going to cost more than my current copay with a commercial PPO. The issue is, as most of you know, there is no generic Azliect (Teva Labs got an injunction about a month ago preventing a generic to come into the US market). Any suggestions? Terry
Amen! Me too! If it weren't for medical marijuana I'd have terrible tremors; my Neuro let me go off med that weren't working for tremors 6 months ago. I micro dose CBD's with a touch of thc to break the blood brain barrier/stimulate the receptors. Works for me and helps me feel normal again. I blog about it on Kartarswisdom.
ask about change to-I am on selegiline-costs about 19 dollars per month for out of pocket if need to-azilect is very expensive on most plans and covered by few-I know other who are still on this med and paying 200 dollars to 400 out of pocket-neurologist can change medication to one that is cheaper with same/similar benefits
Yes and thanks...I do use a an assistance fund and they say I can still use it with Medicare. We have a support group that meets this week and the topic is Medicare enrollment...hopefully there will be lots of conversation on drug programs.
Talk to your physician's nurse, and get the contact information, or have them give your information, to the pharmaceutical rep for your medication. The majority of drug companies have an assistance program that can get your meds for you at a very reduced rate, or at no cost to you. The drug companies provide this service, and receive benefit from aiding patients, do not be shy. Your Dr can help you. It is not a charity program, it is medication assistance. I am a retired RN and medical administrator for 45 years, and this IS a common request
