go to Synthroid's site .. they used to have coupons for $ off .. but not sure of all the details .. if you can take the generic places like Target and WalMart have it for $4.00 .. that may be worth exploring, too ?
Is your copay for prescriptions $25? check your ins card. If generic is cheaper than $25 then I'd opt for the generic. Still unsure? Call your BCBS to double check.
When I had my prescription filled it was for a 90 day supply. ( the first one to get filled). If you have a $25 copay, then you should contact your doc and have them redo your prescription for like a 60 or 90 day supply at a time.
I pay $18.78 for 30 Synthroid 125 mcg - which is less than my insurance co-pay for brand names. (Same price at 2 different pharmacies, not sure if that is a negotiated rate or if it is what it would cost if I filled the prescription without any drug coverage). I have Empire BCBS too, but our drug coverage is through Medco.
I bought my synthroid on walmart and last I got it I paid 17.85 with tax using my insurance card, if you dont have insurance it is $ 113.00 at walmar for just 30 pills, the website for syntroid ofers cupons but you can only used them when you buy 3 months of medicine and if you dont have insurance,, another thing be careful of generic brands specially for thyroid medicine you might get a better deal money wise but you might get to feel worse I have read here many times not to go with the generic got to do with their formula not being a constant, any way hope this help you have a great weekend!
My BCBS does not cover Synthroid and that's why I'm on the brand Levoxyl instead. It was the only brand the insurance covered. My dr recommends a brand name and not a generic, so I chose to go with the Levoxyl. Turns out it's worked out well for me.
