[IP] Re: Insulin through part B costs me more

 Sounds wrong! My part B once a month costs $25. Double check that it wen
through Medicare Part B! They must have done something wrong! Check by calling
your insurance company!

Subject: [IP] Insulin through part B costs me more

After several hours on the phone with Humana (I have a Humana Gold Advantage
Plan, an HMO) and three trips to Walgreen's, it appears that my Novolog
prescription will be covered under Medicare Part B. I thought I would
experience a huge savings over Paret D coverage. Nope. My costs through Part
B will be $438 for three months of Novolog. Part Be applies because I use an
insulin pump. If my coverage remained under Part D, my insulin costs would
have been $391 for three months. The only advantage, based on what my Humana
customer service person told me, is that there is no coverage gap (or donut
hole) under part B.  That should be helpful . Anyway, I'm pretty sad that I
didn't get the price break on insulin that other pump users have
experienced. Sick really.
