Oops! Out Of My Budget

Tonight I web-ordered my drugs. The next 90 day refill was priced at about $1100. Upon investigation, I discovered that I had exceeded my yearly $6000 benefit maximum, which removed the price cap per refill. This meant that I was being billed at 50% of cost, hence the $1100. I do not want to deal with a $1100 drug bill right now.

The main culprit that is expensive is a psoriasis drug, which retails at about $500/month. I will simply start taking that drug 3 days a week instead of 7 days a week. And I will start taking the Lipitor on the same schedule. That will get me through the year on my current stock.

I took my trusty 2 bars outside into the night and made an immediate call to cancel 3 of the 5 meds. I did keep the amytrip and Prilosec, as they are cheap.

I do not know what I will do when I get old(er) and have more drugs to take!
