My GI is placing me on humira both he and the RA doc think it will help my CD related arthritis. I brought the script to the pharmacy today and it did in fact require pre authorization. They contact my GI, the GI calls my insurance...I was wondering how long it typically takes to get approval for it...they are going to see about ordering it so when it gets approved it is already at the pharmacy since they order it on a patient need basis.
Also the dumb microbiologist gave my mom the wrong containers for my stool specimin so I have to collect another one yayyyyy. At least I can use my monday am poo and bring it right to the local satalite location for the hospital since I have to go there anyway for them to read the pre employment ppd test. At least that way I dont need to put it in the fridge, the location is a mile and a half from my house.
