My insurer, Medica, now covers insulin with a max copay of $25 per month. I decided to check it out. Since it has been some time since I’ve bought insulin in the US, I got new prescriptions for Levemir and Humalog. The Levemir was covered 100%! Great news there.
However, they didn’t fill the Humalog because it isn’t on the formulary anymore… Novolog is as close as it gets. (Or Fiasp, which I’m not interested in at this point). My doctor’s office asked if I want a prescription for novolog instead, so I agreed. I’ve never taken novolog before.
I assume they are mostly interchangeable. Anyone see much difference when taking the two?
How easy is it to petition for Humalog over novolog with a case like this? I think express scripts is the PBM for Medica
