The Obama administration is proposing to limit certain classes of prescription drugs. While this plan has come under opposition from several groups (see the New York Times article), it will probably go through.
What does this mean to you?
Until the guidelines are updated, there’s very little way to plan for this change. However, as information filters down, I will be posting information and sending emails to clients about the drug classes affected. For 2014, your drugs will probably all still be covered – this change will probably come for 2015. And at that time, if you have any prescriptions on the list that will be cut, you’ll need to work with your doctor to find substitutions (or be willing to pay out of pocket). Check back for information.
