I just wanted to add this post really quickly because I think it will help a lot of you save a whole buncha money! Jack has a representative from the Department of Public Health and she gave us this AWESOME list of over-the-counter medications that MassHealth will cover WITH a prescription. Now, for a family like ours, this is practically life-changing! Since Jack has chronic sinus infections, we go through pseudoephedrine like nobody’s business. Thankfully, Jack hasn’t had a sinus infection in quite some time so we haven’t needed to give him pseudoephedrine (aka Sudafed) in ages(basically, because he’s been on antibiotics for over two years straight, but that’s a story for another time), but it’s nice to know that although our primary insurance of BlueCross BlueShield (of Ohio, ugh) won’t cover pseudoephedrine with a doctor’s prescription, MassHealth will! So if you have MassHealth, take a good look at this list and if there’s something on it that you use on a regular basis, call your doctor, get a prescription for it, and let the system work for you. Because we know the system RARELY works in our favor!
