Breathing isn't Always Easy!


So sometimes we need a little help to do so, unfortunately my health insurance company, Wellmark Blue Cross Blue Shield, doesn't think that I need my medication, so I'm screwed!

If you have asthma, or know someone who has asthma then you can see I have two days left.

My pharmacy Hyvee Drugtown wants $299 for one months supply of Arnuity Ellipta asthma inhaler. At the encouragement of my Facebook friends I called around to see if I could get a better price. Yes I have the coupon but the pharmacies are telling me that they cannot accept it if my insurance company won't pay for the inhaler, although the wording on the coupon says otherwise. 


So here's the break down in pricing:

  • $437.99 CVS
  • $299.00 Hyvee Drugtown Pharmacy 
  • $195.96 Medicap Pharmacy
  • $193.00 Walgreens
  • $184.23 Walmart Pharmacy
  • $168.96 NuCara Pharmacy

Now I wait for my doctor to once again send in prior authorization paperwork to the insurance company in hopes they will approve my prescription.  So much for cadillac health insurance.


PRAISE GOD!!! Sam's Club wins the day!!! $83.50 AND they WILL honor the $100 coupon, per month, for twelve months! Gotta drive 28 miles to get it but what the heck!
