I think every insurance company is different with new medicines, not sure how that will work. I paid cash for my first script, but hope my Kaiser insurance will pay for part once I'm on it.

The doses are 6mg (20mg patch), 9mg (30mg patch) and 12mg (40mg patch). I am taking the 20mg patch which may be all I need, time will tell. So far so good. Rob
