Re:HMO's are Pills

There have been times when I have been on a dosage that doesn't divide evenly by the pill strengths available, so the doc would write two scrips so I could combine, say 75 mg. pills with 37.5 mg. pills. Each scrip costs $20 (I know I shouldn't complain, at least I have coverage and some people have to pay the full price, which is HUNDREDS OF DOLLARS). So I asked my doc to write the scrip all in one size so I don't have to pay two copays. The HMO balked because they don't like to let people take smaller pills. But my doc did get them to agree. This issue is a problem for people who have a hard time swallowing pills, and have managed to learn how to swallow smaller pills, but the HMO wants them to take the big horse-size ones.
