I took Dh to his doctor appointment today. Guess I am glad I did go. I really really liked this doctor and he seemed to focus right in on Dh's health problems. He worked out a plan for a medication to try (could take up to a month of increasing dosage to get results) and said for this visit let's skip the physical. He said he could do that at the follow up visit in a month or so. So, am keeping fingers crossed BIG that this medicine helps him to start feeling a little better!
The medicine is a $15 copay, so was relieved that that's all it was. For this "graduated" method of dosage we actually had to pay for 2 different mg. prescriptions, so $30 out of pocket today, but once he gets on regular dosage it will be only $15/month. I was expecting some big expensive prescription. The new insurance I switched to at the beginning of this year is much better. Covers the first 6 office visits w/only 25% coinsurance and a physical in full. Prescriptions are $15 copay.
