I went to Walgreen's Pharmacy to pick up my meds. Of course it took 30 min to put a label on my pen needles but that's another story. Instead of 2 boxes (204 strips) they gave me one. Apparently Health Net has decided that testing 6 times a day is more than enough for a Type 1 Diabetic. Let's see, 6 times a day times 30 days would be, hmmm, 180 strips. Oh sorry, 2 boxes would calculate to 35 days and we only give you a 30 day supply. So to be fair we will give you 1 box every 17 days and you can pay $40 instead of $20.
What? How is this fair. Well, we are only the pharmacy and have no control (and also don't care).
This happened with my pen needles a few months ago, which is why I reuse needles. What comes next?
Oh,I see that your pens come 5 to a pack and that is more than a 30 day supply. So we will give you one pen per copay and you can come to the pharmacy 5x per month.
I would like to know what's happening to other Diabetics out there. It just smacks of discrimination to me. What do you think?
