Self Insurance Woes

I am the sole owner of a small business and am self-insured with a catastrophic health policy with high deductibles that does not pay for prescriptions. Because of a sleep problem, I take high dosages of a drug called trazodone which has been available as a generic for decades.

Suddenly, my local pharmacy raises the price by 200% because they no longer carry the generic. I ask why, they say we just don't. This single prescription costs $240 a month. I simply can't afford this rip off, but I live in an isolated area so the local pharmacy has a sort of monopoly.
