I feel if you get generic drugs it should be covered. Time released pain medications should be a tier1 and not a non preferred tier2. Many patients will hit the doughnut hole within 6 months. They will be unable to pay for the drugs they need and seek pain relief some other way. What can we do as a nation to see pain as a sickness instead of an excuse. These people need help. They have to jump through hoops to get help just to be unable to purchase the medicine they need.
