Does anyone know if Anthem will cover brand name Adderall ER 30mg? I’m trying to figure out if I should change my coverage back to EY’s insurance. My husband’s insurance, Aetna, will not cover it, even though my provider specified it. I notice a very big difference between name brand and generic, despite what pharmacists have told me. Thanks in advance.

It’s not dependent on who your insurer is, it’s dependent on your specific plan with them. Aetna will cover brand name adderall, if your plan specifies it is a covered medication.

So rather than asking on here, talk to your HR benefits specialist at work about what the specific brand name coverage is for your employer offered plan. They should have a document that outlines what is covered vs what isn’t.

Thank you I will do that.

My psychiatrist told me that there was a huge difference between brand and generic meds, (at the time I thought it was related to all the pharma reps he had in his waiting room nearly every time I saw him). But I noticed a difference too. Partly the fillers, and partly I heard there is a +/- 5% potency margin and generics likely touch the lower end of potency range

Thank you. I appreciate your response. My mother is a director of QA in pharma manufacturing and has mentioned this. This is the difference between offshore countries manufacturing scheduled II drugs vs America. The American fda regulations are much more strict and thus why it is so much more expensive, because you’re right, the fillers, etc.
