So, recently, I was forced to switch insurance because of all the fun that comes along with getting insurance through the ACA. The new plan is probably better, except that it doesn’t cover my Lantus. I only have about 2 weeks of Novolog and Lantus left before my prescriptions completely run out.
To make things worse. I can’t get an endocrinologist appointment in this city without a referral from another doctor. The endo office is also completely booked until May.
Due to my schedule, I haven’t see a doctor in quite a while. I graduated from college, went overseas, lived in the middle of the wilderness for a while, and now work 2nd shift 7 days a week. Because of all this, I haven’t seen a doctor in about 8 months. I was stupid and let my prescriptions run out.
Now what? I need to get a new prescription, but I can’t afford to pay full price for Lantus. My insurance does cover Levemir, but I’m not sure how safe it would be to switch medications without seeing an endo about it.
I’ve spent the last 2 hours trying to get an appointment with a PCP, but I don’t think I can get an appointment in the next 2 weeks anywhere.
