Medicaid is being held hostage, new insurance company


Well , here is some more busy body bureaucratic bullshit, sticking their noses into my business. Just recently I learned that Medicaid is being handled by some new insurance company. I thought, okay, I really don’t care, as long as they do not mess with my care. I spoke too soon.

As if the GI docs, messing up my insides, were not enough. As stands right now, a medication my Doc had a hissy fit over, when I did not get it last time, due to my IBS.. well it’s being held up again, not for lack of a script, as it has refills on it,  but the new insurance company has up and decided, they will not pay for it, as written, unless the Doc explains to them, why I need it twice a day, instead of once. 

Now, I ask you, since she wrote it that way to start with, does that not assume, that is how she wants it ? And up to now, Medicaid has been paying for it. My phamacy guy has faxed over a request, twice and Doc office has not been answering the phone. yet. I’ve been off a medication that already has refills, for a week now and suffering for it. ( I did not realize how well they were working, till they are not there )

Now we have to prove to some faceless bureaucratic board, that I need, what my Doc has already ordered for me ? What a damn chock… on the war path here on this one, this is the frist time and it had better be the last time they interfere, or I will have someones head.

Going to put my War paint on and sic my Doc on them while I am at it.. as she is gonna have a Cow over this one !

  1. I’m beginning to think that the medical insurance people get off on how many things that can mess with, and how much pain and annoyance they can inflict. This is a very unneeded step; they don’t think your doctor knows you and knows what you need? Why else prescribe it to you if you didn’t need it? It’s not rocket science here.

    It’s an insult to you and an insult to your doctor. I hope she throws a huge fit at them, and you get the medicine you need without too much pain and trouble.
