Well after a second appeal to the insurance company they agreed to allow my medication as my prescribing MD has prescribed it instead of how they think it should be taken. This fiasco has had a very negative impact on me, it has created un-necessary stress, cost me financially (I will explain), my work productivity has not been up to par, etc, etc.
The financial expense has been that I had just filled a 90 day supply of one of my meds (at an ungodly price), then had to get new prescriptions at different dosages. Apparently 90 day mail order is no longer lucrative, you pay the same price as a 30 day supply at the local pharmacy. These meds are tier 3, and do not have generic, my opinion of the tiers set forth by the insurance companies is a racket. Especially when one can prove failure on “generics” or Tier One. Another way for the insurance companies to gouge the innocent consumer. I also have the mind set that the working class people bear the financial cost of the free loaders. (another subject for another day).
I do not like change, when I get into a routine, and I find a a pattern that works effectively I do not like having my boat rocked. That is not saying I do not enjoy an occasional impulsive activity (I am taking the kids for donuts this am (a very very rare treat). It took months of trials and tribulations to find dosages that work of my two medications for my ADHD, why is it OK for the insurance company to rock my world and try to label me “non-compliant”.
Life is good, by next week I will be back on my correct dose of ADHD meds, and will also have started a new med. Had blood work done a couple of days ago, apparently age has caught up with my hormones (and the surgical removal of my parts too). I have been miserable hot, cold, glistening with drops of pearly dew (ladies do not sweat) day and night. I refuse to consider the debate of hormones vs not, I have enough other issues in my life right now. Donuts here we come…
