Mary Jane - California Drug Price Relief

“I was diagnosed with asthma 15 years ago. I had been using Qvar as a measure to prevent me from having asthma attacks for over ten years. It appeared to be working. In the fall of 2014 my insurance company, Humana, informed me that they would not cover the use of Qvar for me any longer. I had been getting it with a $40 co-payment. When I checked with the pharmacist, I was told that the cost would be $200 for a 30 day supply. I could not afford it so I have been plagued with several asthmatic episodes and multiple cases of chronic bronchitis as a result of not being able to afford the Qvar inhaler to reduce the inflammation in my lungs which would prevent the asthmatic outbreaks.”
