Go to the manufacture's website (ie pfizer) or google your medicine + coupon and see if they have a copay assistance card/plan available. I needed active vitamin D pills to deal with seizures so severe I otherwise couldn't get out of a hospital unless I could be unhooked from my IV bag. At 10 dollars a pill x 4 pills a day I was making jokes that Viagra would be cheaper! I also missed jury duty because I was in the hospital having seizures.
Wow that's shit. I don't know how US healthcare works but I hope you manage to get it sorted. As someone with MS and living in the UK I have just completed round 2 of Lemtrada on the NHS. I can't imagine the stress of going through all of that while having to work through insurance, getting things approved etc. Not sure what drug you were on but assuming you have RRMS could you look into Lemtrada? There is also a facebook support group that could help (I think) with regards to insurance. Best of luck getting things sorted and staying relapse free.
Gotta love US healthcare.
Get a medication authorization and get it covered. They'll probably cover it if you apply for it.
