    Got an email from a client regarding his Silver Script plan.

    Are other plans having this kind of shift?

    The new "tier 6" should soften the plow a little.

    Does that 50% increase in copay mean from $2 to $3? If so, I've gotten calls like that.

    I don't mind the premium going up a little only some of the generics are already $6 or $8 few at $10, I would hate to see a $15 copay on generic

    I think there has to be a rule implemented that you can't complain about a rate adjustment or "50℅" increase if it is under $10 bucks. I get so many of those too and it is almost hard to not laugh when they demand to change because of the massive increase. My ss check didn't go up 50%!!

    Can't say. He didn't provide details. Told him we would look at it when AEP opens up

    The current SilverScript Choice plan in California is $23.10. Your insured is probably looking at the 2016 premium rate?? I seriously doubt your insured has received anything yet for 2017. The ANOC's haven't even been mail as yet.

    SS is $19.80 in GA for 2016. Can't say if ANOC's have been sent out yet or not.
