kshandra: White text on a blue button: "Better watch now, because things could go wrong in a hurry." (Keith - Better Watch Now)
After the miserable side-effects roller coaster I was on with the metformin, my doctor set me up with some samples of Januvia. I'm tolerating it well, and it seems to be helping at least somewhat, so she submitted a prescription to my pharmacy. Which got bounced because my insurance wouldn't cover it. So I called the doctor's office back, and they started the process to get a prior authorization for it.

I got a letter in the mail over the weekend saying the authorization had been approved, and I finally had thirty seconds to call the pharmacy this morning to see if they'd received a copy - which they had not. The tech put me on hold while she ran the claim...

...and when she got back on the line, she confirmed that it had been approved, but that I was still going to have a $290 copay for a one-month's supply.

What. The actual. FUCK.

I've checked GoodRx, and the price difference is sufficiently negligible that the hassle factor of transferring my script to the lower-priced pharmacy negates the savings. I downloaded a coupon from the manufacturer's website, but if I'm reading it correctly, that's only going to cover half the copay.

And this is with the Affordable Care Act still in effect. Fuck only knows what it'll go up to if ACA is repealed.

I am seriously glad right now that my doctor's office gave me as many samples as they did.
