14. Thats me. I soon will no longer be able to afford treatment and I have
already stopped taking some of my medications. I just stopped. Even the generic of one was $65 a month and another would also be about that and there is no generic available. Adding it all up with other things I take I could be paying several hundred a month in drugs.I can't afford them but I am not eligable for any programs , yet. Maybe if I lose my house and everything is gone I would qualify.Another reason HCR is crap.BTW this is all with private insurance that we are bankrupting ourselves for at $1600 a month.Thank god we have a drug plan :sarcasm:
