So I go to the drugstore today to pick up medication and the pharmacy technician tells me that my insurance indicated this is the last time the drugstore will be able to fill my Rx’s because I have to order by mail. I haven’t called my insurance company yet, but plan on it tomorrow. Are we now at the point that payers are trying to bulk up the bottom line to the point that they’re making deals with third party vendors who manage Rx’s? I don’t like being told what to do or how to do it, especially by an insurance company to whom I’ve been paying premiums for over 20 years.
I was told it may take a month for this all to become effective, so that I need to get with my docs and have them write 90-day scripts. Well this is not a very good plan as the insurance company has already bumped me off one hormone pill, so now I am taking a new one and I am still in that adjustment phase, WHICH MEANS the dosage is almost guaranteed to CHANGE within 90 days. This is waaaaaaay too Big Brother for me, but I will save my outrage until I get some solid answers tomorrow.
See you then! 😉
