So the US can support the world! YIPEE!!!!!

I'd file a claim with your state's insurance commission, talk to your doctor who maybe able to help you with samples and eventually getting free or nearly free meds from the manufacturer. I really dislike insurance companies reversing a doctor's authority to treat his patient the way he sees fit.

A couple of years ago my Wife"s meds cost me $1500 per-month out of pocket for the same reason--Generics didn't work. At the time she did not work, I, on the other hand did work but we where running a severe deficit every month. After 4 months one main pharma co. did discount her drug, from $850 per month to $200. My thinking at the time is why so many generics don't perform as they should, especially when insurance carriers are pushing them endlessly?
