I’ve been on this medication for a few years now the name brand is absolutely amazing unfortunately a generic appeared and I was booted to the alternative. I tried appealing to Great West Life to no avail. Now I have this card from the manufacturer of the name brand drug. “This card covers the cost difference between brand name and the available generic version”. I received one card from my physician the other from the pharmacy. For people like me this is huge. Some generics are not equal so the opportunity to have the name brand covered is amazing!
I think a lot of people are like me and are not aware that these awesome cards exists.
