NicLE1218 : I’d like to get the Ava or the Ovusense, but my husband doesn’t want to spend the money.
I went to pick up compounded progesterone suppositories today. The doctor thinks my strange midcycle bleeding last month was because my progesterone pills weren’t doing the trick. It was much more expensive than I expected. My insurance pays for pretty much anything with a copay of less than $20. Imagine my shock when the pharmacist told me that a supply of 30 was $70! I held out my insurance card, but they don’t bill insurance! They gave me a form to send the insurance. However, I’m currently going rounds with everyone. I called my insurance to find out exactly what to do. They will pay for ingredients, but not a compounding fee. My receipt lists the compounding fee with the ingredients free. I had to call the pharmacy, explain the fee versus ingredients problem and they’re supposed to be emailing me a new receipt. Why is this so difficult!?
