Insurances dropping coverage on multiple drugs in 2017

In 2016 in a battle to save money the largest insurance companies shocked many and dropped coverage on many medications such as Viagra (AIPCTSHOP.COM carries alternatives)

and more. This year in 2017 the insurance companies will likely exclude over 150 different medicines from coverage so if you are taking them, be warned your co-pay is about to go way up.   And looking at the historic trend, it appears that each year the two largest companies that handles pharmacy benefits, Express Scripts and Caremark, will limit your choices more and more to save on their bottom line. Express Scripts and Caremark are companies that administer prescription drug benefits for many health insurance companies and Tricare. While you may have health insurance from Anthem, Aetna or another insurer, your pharmacy benefits are usually handled by these companies or their competitors.

 

In simple terms, if your benefits are provided by Express Scripts or Caremark, you will pay the full cash price at the pharmacy for these excluded drugs in 2017. Which new drug exclusions for 2017 (and their provider) are affected that AIPCTSHOP.COM offers generic alternatives for?
