Does anyone know of any prescription drug plans I can get that would at least partailly cover acne meds (like generic differin, retin a, generic accutane)? I have Dean's individual health plan that I pay for myself every month (and it's good medical insurance that I like) but I have no prescription drug coverage. When I tried to add the Dean prescription drug rider last summer, my "request was declined" because I've been treated for acne and anxiety in the past. Grrrrr. So, I've been looking into trying to find just a prescription drug plan and I thought while I was at it I'd love to find a drug plan that would pay for prescription acne drugs.

Thanks everyone

I can not tell you about a good plan but I will say that if you are buying private most reject if you are on 4 or more scripts , it may even be less, like 2 or 3 I cannot remember. What I i used to do was buy my scripts from canada as an alternative ( if u want the specfic company I can look it up), it is legit, you have to send your script, and cheaper.... also call all the pharmacies in your area and ask the cost of each drug... they vary more than you would think sometimes as much as twenty dollars for one script.... differin is essentially gel form of retina, retina's generic is tretinoin( so said my dermatologist)... i am on .1%(high dose) and pay aprox 50$ for a tube that should last 2 months at least...

Thanks travelzd. I am actually on no prescriptions at all right now. The last time I used a prescription was birth control and it was over a year and a half ago, but they still rejected me, grrr.

I no, sucks. I talked to a health insurance agent and he was researching plans for me ..don't know if you've done that. BC pills can always be gotten at clinics for a redic low price or free......but best of luck :)
