I am 46, i have several herniations and nerve damage. I have been going to walgreens for the past several months to fill oxycodone 30mgs 180ct. Now for the last two months Walgreens tells me they are out, I cannot afford to pay 3-5 dollars per pill to a mom a pop. I also get other prescriptions which is no problem. However without the oxycodone 30 mg the pain is constant and unbearable. Has anyone got any ideas? A solution? Has anyone had luck getting the 15mg oxycodone? I live in pinellas if anyone can direct Me in the right direction here in st pete/clearwater it would be greatly appreciated!!!
As a pharmacist I will answer your question. We ALL have oxycodone 30mg in stock...but..the price per bottle of 100 tablets went from $30 to $110 overnight. The problem is that most insurance companies are reimbursing at the 30 cents a pill rate when the drug COSTS us $1.10 a pill plus add in 70 cents for the cap and vial andother 50 cents for the label/printing 25 cents transmission fee to your insurance company $1.50 professional fee etc etc There s a reason that no one points this out to you. It violates our contracts with insurance companies for us to tell you that your insurance company underpays for your prescription and this is the reason you are told the lie "we can't get it."
Do NOT pay over $3 per pill as that is the standard fair price, anything over is a ripoff...by the way you have Walgreens CVS and Rite AID to thank for that price because if we charge any lower than the chains we are "placed under suspicion" by local law enforcement.
As a pharmacist in a mom and pop if you were to quietly offer to make up the difference that your insurance company comes up short you would save over the cash price and get your meds.
There it is in a nut shell no b.s.. Hope that clears up your question
