When you have meds that are impossible to afford, have you considered contacting the manufacturer directly and applying for some financial aid? I have to do this with my MS med.
It's a bit of a hassle, but better than going without your meds. BTW, Optum wants a co-pay of $6500.00, yep that's right, a month for my MS med. No way. Just know that not all manufacturers will offer aid if you have any kind of RX insurance.
But it's usually worth looking into. Also, consider a company like GoodRX. You will get a coupon and your insurance is not involved. It is worth paying cash sometimes when Optum charges your account horribly inflated prices, ie, $75.00 for a script I can get for less than $10.00 cash.
We all need to do what we can to stay out of their donut hole, which is where they want us so they can ruin us financially. Good Luck
