Hello everyone,
 
I am a mother of two children who is now battling the insurance companies to continue to pay for their Tobramycin and Pulmozyme treatments.
Has anyone had to battle their insurance company to pay for meds?  I sure could use some information and or help with this matter.  Looking forward to your kind responses.

Kari,
Yes I have done battle with the insurance company before. I don't think it ever ends. My best advice is to tell them that these are preventative measures and remind them how much it costs if your kids gets sick. It will end up costing them more to pay for repeated hospital stays than it will for them to cover the meds.

The battle with insurance companies is a never ending one but I finally recruited the help of my family Physician and CF specialist. Sometimes they can send letters and support your need for certain things. I have argued for months sometimes and when I finally got the docs involved it took one phone call or letter and things went through. Don't be afraid to ask them for help.

There is a form you can get from your insurance company and have your doctor fill it out and fax it back to the insurance company, I myself just went through it with my son.
