Patient Profile: Meryl


Meryl lives with anxiety and depression. Her doctor prescribed medication at the end of July last year, which happened to be after she met her family’s insurance deductible. The prescription enhances the effectiveness of her other medicines and helps her manage her illness. At the start of 2015, the Highland Park mother of two was shocked to discover that this medication would cost $800 per month until she met her plan’s high deductible, which could take several months. Her doctor has kindly been giving her samples to take, and they are now working on a plan to wean her from the medicine, but that really shouldn’t be the way important healthcare decisions get made… Please help Meryl by supporting #CaptheCopay.
