Physical Activity: Warnings And Safeguards

Your health care team can help you plan your meals, snacks and when to take your medication based on the type of physical activity you do.

    Has metformin ER gone up in price?

    Had to switch insurance companys.....and i'm pulling out my hair with this new one...all sort of little rules....
    first, I take 2-500 mg metformin tables in the morning and eve........so I put this into the new plans calculator...well
    for a month, I get a message that require it to be "pre-approved" !!
    when I put it into the cost, I enter it in for 30 days........imagine the shock I had when it said my bill would be over $3000 !!! for
    120 pills..........I tried and tried to tell them something was wrong, nope, I don't understand, different generics cost cost more than
    others........but I can see $3,000 !!!.....now if I get 100 pills at at a time....it's only $5 !!!
    I also must get pre-approval for lantus, my test strips, and another diabetic rx. I am also limited to how many times I can fill at
    the local pharmacy.

    I take 4x 500 of the Metformin ER and it costs me about $7 for a 3 month supply. If you get the brand name it is very expensive. Make sure you check you are pricing the generic Metformin ER.
    Also check you are pricing for the 500 mg tablets, not the 1000 mg tablets. Most diabetics I know take 4x500 rather than 2x1000, which tend to be a lot more expensive. I would also call your insurance company and ask them. Do you have a deductible you have to meet first?

    I can say this is a plan I would never want to be on, if you have a Walmart go there, think its like $10 bucks or something like that. Even the ER was cheap when I was on that, many are going to see the approved first for about everything.
