When I refilled Ian’s prescriptions for the 3rd time since his diagnosis, the pharmacist said, “No charge.”
For January , I paid $509 for the first refill of Humalog and Lantus. (But let’s not forget lancets, test strips, ketone strips, syringes, and his Glucagon)
For February, I paid $50.
For March, “No charge.”
We had reach the maximum out-of-pocket.
In 52 days, we had spent enough money on medicine to not have to pay anything for the rest of 2013.
Less paperwork to file with his dad’s insurance.
Grateful and thankful for my insurance plan.
I did a small jump for joy right there at the pharmacy counter.
And then on the way out, I thought, “Wow. This is sad.”
This is reality.
My boy has to rely on medicine that is so expensive that we’ve reached the max in less than two months.
