Hi, everyone. Just got my first Sprycel order through Medicare Part D. I choose Humana as my Part D provider because they were cheapest and had everything I take on their formulary. I pay $17.00/mo. with a $400 deductible.
I don't have to use a specialty pharmacy I just used my regular pharmacy. I paid approximately 30% or $2340.43 of the retail price, $7816.99. Reminder, this is for 50 mg.
Next month will be more because I will be in and out of the "donut hole". After that point I should pay between $300 and $400 per month depending on what other drug gets refilled at the same time.
That's way more than I was paying before I retired, but I also think it may be way less than some are paying now with private insurance.
I don't know what the answer is to this country's medical/pharmaceutical/insurance costs problem
but I hope whatever Congress comes up with is more than the "something terrific" lip service we have gotten so far.
