    Hi all:
    Taking a non scientific poll,as my employer without warning or prep for any of us employees, suddenly decided no more mail order meds-take your script, go to the pharmacy, do not stop, do not pass go, take out your wallet and spend $260 at one stop for 2 meds for FM. And that's WITH using the insurance card. You can file for reimbursement, but dont hold your breath...
    My pharmacist told me that the companies have offered alternative co-pay plans but its still thru buying at the pharmacy. My employer is playing dumb when I asked them why we haven't been offered this option.
    Is this happening to anyone else with insurance?

    OUr insurance changes EVERY year. Last year we changed from the mail order to the drug store. Bummer to say the least but this year we are back with mail order. It doesn't seem to pay as much. And our ov for specialist is now $50. I have seen an eye doc about 6 times in last two months.

    You know we in the US have the best, but only the well off are going to be able to afford it. What good is that for the majority.

    I read recently that the top of the income and the lowest of the income have pretty good care, it is just EVERYBODY in the middle. Sad.
