THey will cover it but you need to get a script for VSL #3 double strength (packets--powder). You only need to use half the packet each day.
The pills are a much lower dose that is why you need so many. Witht he DS packet you take it in a cold drink or something at night (its only 1 teaspoon) before bed so it works best.
I made the same mistake by getting if from drugstore until my doc directly ordered it through my inurance company for me..must be double strength..they can also ask for a 90 day supply for you at the same copay..I paid only 30 dollars for 90 days and using half the packet it is good for 180 days...

Thank you! I realize I have the wrong one. I have VSL#3 in capsule form.
On the script my LLNP wrote VSL #3 but after reading your responses I remember her saying to take a half pack a day. She also said if insurance did not cover it the cost would be around $80 so I am sure she meant for me to get the double strength one, but did not indicate it on the script.
Unfortunately I didn't question the pharmacist and already opened the bottle. I guess I will stick w/ this until it is done and then talk w/ the LLNP about getting the correct script for the double strength version.
So since I will take 2 a day would it make sense to take one in the morning, one at night or both together?
