have medicaid and medicare but need drugs badly

Postby bptabby » Fri Nov 09, 2007 11:48 am

Hi,
I recently went to Menninger Clinic in Houston for an evaluation. I found out some things and they would not accept me into a program I wanted to go into, but that's a different story.
Instead they are suggesting an out of state treatment center which is $9000 a month for the first 2 months, then you can apply for financial aid.
My parents don't have that kind of money and either do I.
So I need help with drugs badly.

I am on the following :

5 mgs Lexapro, 100 mgs Seroquel, 85 mgs Strattera, 4 mgs Ativan, 3 mgs Lunesta.

Then others

145 mgs Tricor, 0.137 synthroid, 1500 mgs Glucophage XR, 5 mgs Zomig,

I think thats it.

Thanks for all your help...

Help is on its way!

bptabby,

We are working with your list of drugs.

If you give us a little more information we can be most effective at getting your costs as low as possible.

It is important to know each pills dosage. The cost per mg of a drug varies tremendously with the strength of the pill. Strangely enough, the stronger pills almost always cost much less per mg than lower dosage pills.

We cannot guess about this. For example, you wrote that you take 100mg of Seroquel. Many people take this as one pill at bedtime. Many take 50mg at night and 50mg in the morning. Other people take 25mg pills as needed and they average 100mg per day.

It helps a lot to know what you are currently paying for each specific drug per month. That allows us to eliminate various methods that would be of no use to you.

Knowing your household income and number of people in your household can also help. There are assistance programs that help people with incomes of $60,000/year. Your parents might balk at this but you can tell them it could save a great deal of money. Also, you can explain that no one knows who you are here so that information is of no use anywhere else.

We will work with the information you have given us so far, but if you want the lowest costs then the extra information is needed.

Thanks for posting! :D

Welcome...We'll do our best to help!

Welcome to Slash Drug Costs, bptabby. :)

It sounds like you've really got a lot on your plate and I wish there was a way you could get into one of the treatment programs you investigated. In the meantime, let's see what we can do to help you get your medications for the lowest possible cost.

Since you indicate you're from Cincinnati and have both Medicaid and Medicare, I'm assuming you're covered under Ohio's Medicaid program along with Medicare. I've checked into the Ohio program somewhat and found that it pretty much requires you to get your medications through a Medicare Part D prescription drug plan. I don't know how long you've been covered under either Medicare or Medicaid, but there are instances where Medicaid will provide some financial assistance with the Part D premiums, plan deductibles and reduced copays.

The fact that you're paying more than you can afford for your meds makes me think that they're coming through the Part D plan. If so, at this point in the year you would almost certainly have reached the coverage gap...or "donut hole"...where very few Part D plans pay for your meds.

It would help me a lot if you could give me a little info on your Part D plan. Just basic stuff like if it has any coverage in the gap, if it offers mail order, what your copays generally run. Also...it's getting near January 1st, when you can change your Part D provider if you're not getting the best coverage from the plan you have now.

And as jimithy wrote, we can give you the best suggestions if we know the exact strengths of each medication you're taking. His explanations are right on target! What you provided was great...knowing the total you take each day can also help us better help you.

Please don't let this request for more information intimidate you. You'll remain completely anonymous to everyone here and we're not trying to pry into your personal life. It's just that the more specifics we have, the better we can help you cut your drug costs :!:
