Earlier to day I picked up a prescription for high blood sugar, Metformin. I take 4 pills a day, so a 90 day supply consists of 360 pills. This is a generic medicine, so the when I picked up my 90 day supply in January I paid $26 since that was the copay for this medicine under Horizon Blue Cross/Blue Shield.
Today would be the first time I had this prescription filled under my new Medicare Part D plan. So I was not sure how much it would cost. I had ordered it first thing this morning, and I stopped by CVS to pick it up after visiting with mom over at Baker Place around 3pm. I was pleasantly surprised to find that it rang up as $0.83 copay. Yes, that is right under my Aetna Medicare Part D, the copay was less than $1!
