My husband has been on medicare for at least four years after threeyears of being on Medicaid. He was severely injured at age 56 and continues to be disabled. During the change to medicare(primary)/medicaid we had no difficulties in having any of his medications paid for and I interviewed several different medicare providers before choosing one that would cover the majority of his medication costs with medicaid covering the rest. Each year when you are able to change medicare providors I would check with his medicare providor to ensure all his medications are still covered. I was assured they all were, so I continued with the same provider. After three months I was refilling his vytorin perscription when the pharmacy informed me that his medicare provider no longer covered vytorin and that medicaid would not cover it since his medicare should pay for it. My husband has very high chloresterol which diet and exercise do not affect. He has tried all the chloresterol medications and can only tolerate the vytorin so we're stuck. We can't afford to buy it and medicare won't go back to covering vytorin.
