Not covered. The blood tests aren't covered either in my experience.
The medication is far from breaking the bank though.
Don't know where you got that info from, Ato.
Ob/Gyn exams and blood tests are also covered by basic insurance.

The blood tests are covered indeed, with basic insurance. They were already over 20yrs ago when my GP did them and are still now when the Endocrinologist does them, as well as the examination.


@OP I got Hashimoto since about ~25 yrs,
First on Eltroxine 0.05mg ( 100 tablets cost 9.35.-), am now on Euthyrox 50mcg ( 100tablets 14.70.-).

I buy the tablets in bulk at my pharmacy for one year ( because my son also has Hashi and is on same meds so should I snuff it, he can inherit them and use them up)

I pay myself, save the bills and at the end of the year I have accumulated more expenses than 500.- ( my deductible minimum) and then send everything in bulk to my insurance.
