  •  A lot of times they don't know (5+ / 0-)

    Many times they don't know the cost of drugs they are prescribing and of course they can't be expected to know the coverage your insurance plan has: there are so many plans, each with their own rules. This is a problem: doctors are given all kinds of information, through  advertising and marketing, about the latest and greatest drugs, but they don't have information about cost, or any kind of cost/benefit ratio.

      that has all the formularies of the major insurance providers so he can be sure what he prescribes is covered. Very cool.
