CHARGES TO PICK UP RX REFILLS
My husband has been seeing the same doctor for pain management for about 10 years. Two years ago he began using Fentanyl patches for pain. He sees the doctor every 3 months, and picks up his Rx refill every month at the pain clinic.

We recently changed health care plans and now have an immense up-front deductible. I was surprised to see that every month when my husband picks up his refill the clinic submits a charge of $95 to our insurance company (which they are not covering at this time due to the high deductible). So we're now paying a $95 fee each month just for the refill pickup, and $570 for the medication.

Is this a common practice in pain management clinics? I'm incredulous that the fee to pickup every month is so high. When he has an office visit with the doctor the fee is $150.
