Re: What meds are closest to Nexium? My insurance is dropping nexium.

Did your United Health Care Plan use Medco as the mail-away pharmacy? Are all United Health Care Plans the same - can we all expect to get this letter? It took me 6 months to get approved for Nexium 2x a day when I switched insurance a year ago due to all of Medco and United's screw-ups. Now they want to drop Nexium? Are they planning on dropping all prescription PPIs? I know that every time I get my order in the mail, it comes with a letter asking "Did I know that Prilosec OTC is now available cheaply?"
