I don't know what to do
I recently changed my insurance carrier through my employment. I am a teacher in a year long volunteer program. I receive a $110.00 every 2 weeks as a stipend. Through this insurance I pay $60.00 for just one medication, forget about the other 4 I take. I am trying to apply for state health insurance, but I am not going to hold my breath. Does anyone else have any suggestions. It is getting to be too much.IC-diagnosed August 1998 with cystoscopy and hydro

Have you checked to see if your medications might be available from the manufacturers free or at a reduced rate based on income? Also could they be cheaper through mail order out of Canada? Just a couple of thoughts.Jolene
