Last month Medicaid ran out for Sierra and we were denied renewal due to income. We had to pay for her Keppra (seizure medication) out of pocket. At Wal-Mart it came out to $57. We have a prescription card through insurance for Walgreens, but we were in a hurry and didn't have the time to transfer it. Yesterday I decided to go ahead and deal with having it transferred to Walgreens. I asked them how much it would be, but they said they didn't know. Today I went to pick it up, and the lady said that it was $69.69.

That is CRAZY!!!! Why does everyone have to hike up the price if you are using insurance!!! I said, "You have got to be kidding me! Am I required to buy it?" She said no, so I said that I wasn't going to. (I'm sure they weren't happy with me but seriously they should have told me the price yesterday and then it would have saved both of us time.) So then I had to call up Wal-Mart and get the prescription transferred back to them. What a pain. It's a good thing she is not on a lot of medicines...they are expensive!

Now if we could only get MDCP with Rider 28. I'm not sure if it is based on severity though....don't know if she would qualify for Rider 28.
