Whattya mean, Medicare D won’t pay for this 70-year-old lady’s birth control pills?

by Caleb Reading

Recently one of my coworkers was looking at the drug formulary for one of the Medicare D plans, and he said, “They don’t cover birth control! This plan sucks!” Then we all gave him a WTF look and he paused for a second and said, “Oh . . . right.”

A few minutes later, we went through the same routine when he noticed they didn’t cover drugs for childhood ADHD either.
