Wow thank goodness for insurance.
We are lucky too we only pay $9 a refill for his singular and I think $9 for his albuterol when we get it. Insurance picks up the rest. I don't know what it would actually cost monthly. I think the singular is about $160 a refill.
Danny is on Xopenex and that alone is several hundred dollars for one refill. I don't remember how much the advair is off hand but I *think* it is at least $200 without insurance. He is also on an enzyme supplement because he doesn't produce digestive enzymes and that costs over $500 a month... He is one insanely expensive child...
How do you afford your asthma meds for your kids? My DH and I both work full time..
Does your insurance cover the costs? Since majority of A.J's meds are name brand, it covers majority of it, but it's normally $30 each and $10 for generic.. It use to be free until the economy went down and the new health care laws. Crazy how it all gets affected.
Do you have to trim from somewhere else in the budget? Not really.. I don't really budget.

A.J's Flovent and Singular are about the price.. So glad I don't have to pay those prices..

How do you afford your asthma meds for your kids? Insurance, FSA, and out of pocket cash
Does your insurance cover the costs? Most of it. Frederick has 2 insurances, a primary and a secondary. We sometimes have co-pays and sometimes not. If we got them filled at Fort Knox, it'd be free but I have no desire to drive from Prospect to there.
But he is on a lot of $9.00 medicines: singulair, Xopenex, Pulmicort, Allegra, and his epi-jr pen
$22.00 - New nose spray medicine. I have to recheck what the name is.
Do you have to trim from somewhere else in the budget? Sometimes I can't get him toys/treats. But now that c/s is about to come in August 1st plus I'm now getting a steady paycheck, it'll be much easier.
