    I'm so glad they have offered to replace it for you... that is awesome!

    Yes, I read just fine... thanks... the implication was she got what was covered and now it might be ruined... which is why I replied how I did.

    Thank you everyone for listening to my mini rant. I am now very, very careful with my insulin. The company that represents humalog actually phoned in the coupon to my pharmacy and I was able to pick it up with hours of them doing so, I only missed 1 dose. I am so thankful for the company literally saving my life by doing this. I get one bottle of insulin covered a month ((not complaning, small co payment for a $133 bottle of insulin)) as the working poor I could never have replaced that bottle on my own, nor is anyone in my family any better off then I was. I wrote a big, long thank you note thru the contact me site about the agent and the goodwill the company spreads, I was literally in tears when I called them, I could not have gotten by 25 days without my insulin, I am a very brittle diabetic. So thankfully it all worked out and I am back on my regimen and feeling good. Now I need to start losing some weight and try to get off of it, I didnt realize how much of a crutch it was until my legs got knocked out from under me. Thank you all for listening to me harp.

    Gotcha! And so happy that the company knows good PR when it sees it! Now you can breathe a little easier.

    OMG $ 133.00 a vial - eek!! I take Humulin (same company different insulin) and I know it is over $ 50.00 a vial and I get 3 vials a month for a $ 10.00 copay. Stupid part is when I was originally diagnosed it was $ 11.00 a vial for the exact same medication and that was in 1988.
