Drug Co-pay mistake by insurer
Jan 11, 2007

I have a 25% co-pay on my drugs with my insurance company. When I went to get them mail order they only charged me a $20 co-pay. Now almost 4 years later they said they made a mistake and it should have been 25% co-pay. I can accept paying it from now on.. but can they legally go back and charge me for years of a mistake they made?

Response from Ms. Franzoi

I would fight this. It was their mistake and they should only apply this prospectively, not retroactively, and certainly not for 4 years.
