Re: [IP] Re: insulin-pumpers-digest V13 #843



 No, the Kaiser price refers to the total price for that prescription. Don't
forget Kaiser
 negociates a price with the manufacturer, in this case Eli Lilly. Thay are so
big they can get a
 good price. A while back Kaiser switched from Novolog to Humolog because they
said they
 get a better price. Not that it affected my co-pay! This shows the
illogicalities of the US health
care system!
