Excuse me while I vent about the insanity of health insurance here in the USA.
I take levothyroxine for a chronic condition (which means that I have taken the same dose for years and will likely continue to do so). I have a couple of choices for buying it:
- $15.89 for a 30 day supply using my insurance at a local pharmacy. (My insurance will not authorize a 90 day supply.)
- $8.95 for a 30 day supply at retail from Costco. I get that by paying $26.85 for a 90 day supply and not telling Costco anything about insurance.
My wife, who is lucky enough to have a Medicare plan, got 90 days of the same levothyroxine for $3.00, which works out to a whopping $1.00 per month.
