I recieved notice today that while BCBS will not cover any of my Copaxone they will cover the generic Glatopa. Does anyone use the generic or been switched to the generic? Was there any difference in benefits or side effects? Thanks for any feedback as i need to start meds as soon as possible so i dont get worse hopefully.
Yes I was on the generic for a while I saw no difference in how it affected me🙏💞lots of generics compare well to the real, a couple of my meds are generic due to the fact of insurance. You'll be ok Warrior💞💞💞🙏
Ive been taking the generic this year...was on Copaxone last year. No difference.
It takes a minute. You may have to call them a few times. Don’t get discouraged. I will be praying for you! It’s all gonna work out. I don’t beleive the generic is the same medicine. It’s worth a shot, no pun intended, lol. Especially if it gets you on the medicine quicker
Was on Copaxone for 18 years. Switched to Glatiramer Acetate by Mylan...happy to say no problems at all. You should be fine. Mylan offered to help with copay. Thankfully, I dont have any. WallyWorld (Aetna) picks up everything as long as I get it monthly. If I received three month supply, Id have to pay $1000 copay. Thats what Mylan was going to help with. Good luck Laura 😊
Never used the generic. My insurance wouldn’t cover mine either, so I had the doctor send a letter to the insurance company to request an exception. It took a minute, but they eventually covered it. In the meantime, while I was waiting, I applied for Copaxone’s financial help program and got approved for special help from Copaxone.
