Medicare coverage, limits, and other parameters can be confusing and frustrating when what we thought was covered is not. In a public post earlier this week I came across a question we believe should be answered here, to shed some light on the subject for you, our readers.
Question originally posted on Facebook:
“In discussing the increased cost of healthcare today a friend just shared a huge bump in his medication cost. He takes 3 capsules per day of the CREON pancreatic enzyme supplement. In visiting his local pharmacy he was told that the retail cost for a 30 day supply of these capsules was increased from $300 to $700 based on his taking 3 per day with meals. I guess Medicare co-pay is being cut as a result of Obamacare. Perhaps someone can enlighten me on this huge cost increase.”
