I used to pay $120 for a 90 supply of Novolog last year thru Aetna mail order. My policy is the same HMO only change is that it now meets the Obamacare version. I went to reorder the same…Continue

Hey everyone,I am not doing to good right now. I had a good day to start with great BG readings. Got home and decided to take a two hour long nap. When I awoke I was greeted with severe nausea and a…Continue

Has anyone ever developed some kind of hollow indentation on their stomach? I am not even sure if it correlates with having Type I diabetes, but I thought I would reach out and see? I have a slight…Continue

"Yes. The price is being manipulated. I had assumed that Humalin was still at the, shall we say, "regular" price, but the price I have (about $18) was one from memory of about 2000. Apparently the cost in 2009 was about…"

"I think a strong case can be made that the reason HC costs went up form most is because the ACA required coverage for children (college students) up to age 25, and also made them cover people with preexisting conditions. Before, the insurance…"

"Yep, getting it is apparently not part of what we signed up for ;-) On my plan humalog and novalog are both tier 1, this is because the Humalog (and, I assume Novalog) patents expired last year - May, this is when my copay went down from $30 for…"

"We recently had to buy insulin for our cat. The cost for a tiny vial was indeed stunning. But our vet had coupons for us that we could use that brought the cost down from hundreds of dollars to 11.99. We did inquire! She said something about the…"

"I don't get it... Lantus and Huma/Novolog are two different insulin types. Why is one Tier 1 and the other Tier-2? I guess I could understand the comparison between Lantus and, say, Ultra-Lente (which I love, and I wish they would make again…"

"It sounds like your insurance's formulary changed, NOTHING to do with Obama, stop trying to blame the president for everything that happens in this country at every second when your insurance is to blame here, not him. Insurance formulary…"

"Phooey, this is all silly. Ask the insurer the question and you will get the answer, rant on about politics and you will just get high blood pressure. I telephoned my insurer today, the phone call cost me $0.0996 and 9:22 minutes of my time (most, I…"

"Well, of course, the truth is we can't know this without knowing the internal factors that led to these changes at the insurers. These changes might just as well be 100% because of Obamacare. To point out that nothing in the law directly…"

"Thanks for the clarification. My point was that this could really be an issue with meeting a deductible at the beginning of the year. We also attribute a lot of things to "Obamacare" that are not part of ACA. My office introduced a…"
