You go to see your doctor, he outlines a treatment program for you, you head to the drug store and then boom it hits you! That insurance that you thought paid for your health and medicines won't pay for the medicine your doctor wants you to take. So do you bite the bullet and dig deeper into your budget or do you ask for a generic? Are generic drugs as good as their brand name counter parts? How come insurance will pay for some medicines but not others? It's almost as if the insurance company is taking control of your health care, not your doctor. I think the only thing worse would be if the government took over your health care.
