      through my employer. Every year, they approve a new formulary for medications. Nearly every year, a medication I am on is taken off formulary and replaced with a different medication. There have been years when one of my meds was taken off formulary - only to be put back on the following year and the replacement med then taken off. It has nothing to do with a medical decision - it has everything to do with which pharmaceutical will offer the greatest discount to the plan. Most of the time, from a medical point of view, this hasn't been a problem - on a few occasions it has been - but, tough luck on me. In other words, it's not an ACA thing - this is standard health insurance MO and won't be resolved until we finally get single-payer (perhaps).
