They Don't Care
Several months ago my doctor informed me that Singular would be coming out with a generic brand. As a result, I should be able to save some money. Around the first of August when I went to my pharmacy to refill my Singular/generic prescription my copay was $20.00 a tier 1 medication via United Healthcare. I was able to save $30.00 dollars, normally without the generic, my copay would have been $50.00. My dilemma, this month (September) I once again went to refill my Singular/generic prescription and was informed by my pharmacy, the copay would be $50.00. I was certain a mistake had been made, because last month my copay was only $20.00 via United Healthcare. Upon calling United Healthcare, I was told there was no mistake. United Healthcare informed me that they had made a decision to raise the copay of the generic Singular to $50.00/tier 2, and the non-generic Singular to a $90 copay/tier 3. I am mad, it seems to me this company is only concerned about making money. I am paying the same copay that I have been paying all the time although this is a generic drug. They do care about a consumer like me who have about 6 prescriptions I must refilled once a month. I cannot wait until open enrollment.
