Last night, I went to the pharmacy to refill my prescription for the birth control pill. We went through the drive through imagine my delight when there was zero payment due. It used to cost $13/month. After a year of getting screwed it felt like a small victory.
Today, the pharmacy that sends the drugs for the transfer contacted me to initialize everything. I had expected it to be approximately $1500.00. A fraction of the costs associated with IVF drugs. Can you imagine my delight when I got the email saying that with my co-pays I owe $227.00? Wait, hold the brakes... did she just say co-pays? I expected this to be total out of pocket. I emailed her back... Did you just say co-pays? Yes she did!
I think we just won the health care reform lottery. None of this was covered before. NONE! I believe this might be a pleasant bonus to the newest installment of the health care reform that was effective August 1. I could be totally wrong, and it could just be a coincidence. I sit here and wait for my insurance company to catch onto the fact that they made a mistake. For right now, I am declaring victory!
