Started with a new doctor who is great. For the last few years my previous doc would hand me insulin at each visit, saving me the grief of dealing with a pharmacy. Today, the new doc Rx’d a 90 day supply to Walgreens (ugh!). Walgreens texted me that it is delayed. I call, on hold fovever, transferred 2 times, then told Medicare doesn;t pay for insulin. AAACK! I told them that’s not true so they tried and failed to transfer me to person number 3.
A few hours later I call back, another long wait, 3 people later they said that they need a “CMN” form filled out by the doc. Called the doc, they dont have the form but hopefully either walgreens will fax them the form (another call from doc to Walgreens) or Medicare could provide it. SIGH!
oh, w/o coverage, they wanted $120 for 6 vials , good for 90 days.
Wouldn’t it be nice not to have to deal with pharmacies, and doctors over and over? I feel like lately I’ve become a full-time patient, going to appointments, getting procedures done (today was my first bladder wash with BCG). Either it’s my imagination, or I’m already getting a low grade fever from it.
