|So, I am very frustrated! I went to the doctor yesterday to get my Implanon taken out and decided I would go back on the birth control I was originally on over three years ago, Ortho TriCyclen Lo. I loved this pill. I had to switch to a generic pill (Tri-Sprintec - that made me crazy and wasn't the right one) when I was still on my dad's insurance because his would not cover Ortho Tri lo. Yesterday, I realized why they wouldn't cover it. I PAID ALMOST $50 WITH INSURANCE!! Gah!! Now I have really good insurance (Federal Employee Program) and I never expected for it to be that much. Maybe $25-$30, but NOT $50. I called my insurance company and they confirmed that they paid 55% of it (so it was over $100 total). She also said that since part of ObamaCare was implemented this year, it does not cover as much on Name Brand medications, and there is not a generic for Ortho Tri-cyclen Lo (of course..).|
Has anyone else been in this situation?? If so, did you stick with Ortho Tricyclen Lo or did you switch to a cheaper/different birth control?
