I could have funded a second retirement with all the money blown for that purpose. I already eat daily oatmeal, strawberries, and walnuts. Might add shredded wheat as my daily lunch too just to keep the pipes clean and avoid ever having to pay the criminal Viagra fees!

Ha ha..I hear the divorce rate is going up in many retirement communities as old gents have partaken in the "drug" and have strayed form the "nest" a bit. (I wish now I had been a family law attorney instead of an engineer).

Generally, I view this too-common HI plan practice as foolish. How much $$$ is lost to extra doc & hospital care when folks deteriorate after being forced off their stable meds?
Friday my DW found out that Victoza is no longer covered under our program. We could buy it wat Walmart for $575 or switch to Byeta sp? However she a severe reaction to the approved drug. She contacted Express scripts who told her to consult her doctor. The Dr office was well aware of the situation and wrote a clinical exception note to the supplier. This brought the cost down to $236. I can't say we won but it's better than nothing.
