    Default Prescription Co Pay for 2013

    just wondering for those of you that take any meds what your co pay may have changed to this year

    Mine went up 33% for a 60 day supply of blood pressure meds (non generic)...the generic meds I use, I get for free( for now) from our union pharmacy...but that may change

    Have any made an office visit yet and have those co pay costs gone up ?

    Meds have stayed the same, doctors' visits have gone up 50% (from $20.00 to $30.00) and specialists up 33% (from $30.00 to $40.00) and hospital went from a 90%/10% split to 80%/20%.

    I had my perscriptions filled on Friday. The Lipitor was the same $15. co-pay when I get the generic. My Effient was the same $65 co-pay as there is no generic. I thought for sure that Viagra would be covered by Obamacare but it's not!

    Can't answer that as our insurance went up so much thanks to the "UNaffordble Care Act" we had to drop some stuff and up our deductible.

    All coverage is the same as last year, and our insurance company dropped or premium a little bit. My copay for drugs is $10, unless the doctor demands that no generic replacement take place. Then I think my copay is $30.
