Metformin

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!
