Blue Cross just notified me that, because of the new law, my annual prescription drug coverage is now unlimited! Yay.
This also means my co-pay on a 90-day supply of brand name drugs is going from $60 to 50% of the cost, up to a cap of $500 per med per refill. So instead of paying $120 for two of the maintenance (blood pressure/cholesterol) drugs I take, I will be paying $273.24. That's an extra $613 per year. Boo.
Yes, I am switching to the (more side-effect-ridden) generics.
