What are compounded medications, why are they important?

Have you recently gone to pick up your medication at your local pharmacy only to be told that it is no longer covered by your insurance? Have you received a letter from your insurance company pretending that they are going to “save” you from non FDA approved medications, such as your compounded hormones or pain medications? Make your voice heard. Contact your human resource managers and file a complaint.

CVS To Charge Some Customers More For Using Pharmacies That Sell Cigarettes

Professional Village Compounding Pharmacy & Medical Supplies Sacramento & #CompoundingPharmacySacramento & #CompoundingPharmacyRoseville wanted to share this with you..
CVS/Caremark looking out for your health or their bottom line? Another way to force Caremark patients to use CVS Pharmacies, which are owned by Caremark. Should a Pharmacy Benefits Manager (PBM) aka Insurance Company be allowed to not only own a Pharmacy Chain, but be allowed to write the rules that steer their patients only to the pharmacies that they own? If they really wanted to try and incentivize people to quit smoking by charging them higher rates that is one thing, but to increase their prescription co-pays because they used a pharmacy that sells tobacco seems a little self serving.http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/10/20/cvs-cigarettes-prescriptions-charge-more_n_6016856.html
