Re: This is how I feel about the BC debate

Does'nt the cost of the copay come down to several things like if the medication is generic or not,price of medication from the maker and things like that?
Oh, I don't think they should pay the same dollar amount copay, I just think they should pay a copay. Whatever their individual, private insurance dictates the copay be on whatever form of medication their taking. Be that $9 for a generic or what have you. My husband is on 16 medications every day. Some of those are $80 every 3 months, some are $6 every 3 months...just depends.

I'd be okay with it being whatever their insurance dictates a copay be...I just 100% do not support it being $0. Not in the slightest.
