Medco is the worst
Singulair, Pulmicort, Freestyle Lite Test Strips - Complaint
LITTLETON, COLORADO -- I have to use Medco for prescriptions because of my insurance plan, and I have to order from their mail-order pharmacy for "long term" prescriptions or else they won't pay for my prescriptions at all, which is kind of a joke, because they barely pay for them now.
First of all, they won't pay a penny for the prescriptions until you meet your insurance deductible (which is $2500, and that's the lowest deductible plan I could get!!!) So that means they can charge huge prices on prescriptions, not pay for them, and you have to pay THEM for these huge prices or else it doesn't go towards your deductible. Before I meet my deductible, my son's two asthma prescriptions are, I kid you not, $800 for a 3 month supply. I have to order the 3 months all at once, and they won't even let me split up the cost and pay $266 a month, I just have to be able to come up with $800 every 3 months until we meet our deductible.
AFTER we meet our deductible, it goes down to $150 for a 3 month supply, which is more reasonable, but still not cheap.
Now, I have just been diagnosed with Gestational Diabetes, and they want to charge me another $300 for 3 months worth of my test strips (on top of $800 for my son's medication) so $1100 for 3 months worth of medicine. What. The. $%$%?!?
I don't know how the people running these companies sleep at night. I don't know how anyone is supposed to afford this stuff. My husband and I both work full time jobs and we do okay, but the idea that we basically have to pay an extra mortgage payment every 3 months for 3 prescriptions is insane.
Also, their Customer Service is unfailingly rude.
