Alert!

It appears that Express Scripts has raised their prescription prices considerably!
I was shocked to find that one of my prescriptions which was a generic, cost $12 at the pharmacy, and has now DOUBLED in price. A second prescription which was not generic, was capped at $50 and is now $75!
These are monthly prescriptions. On checking with Express Scripts, I find that if these are mailed in to them, the $24/month rx is $12 for THREE MONTHS, and the $75/month rx is $100 for THREE MONTHS!

Make sure that you can get your prescriptions filled for three months and have enough time to mail them in.
If not, Express Scripts charges $18 to overnight your prescriptions, so in an emergency, you can get them quickly.

I am waiting for a call back from Viacom Benefits, to see what they have to say about this situation, and if there is any further clarification, I will post it as soon as I know.
