so i went to the dr today and was asked at sign in "shannon, have you had your pain pump trial yet? we need verification from your insurance" i thought "this is finally about to happen" well i got the full lecture from the dr in regards to the pump itself.... the dr did a great job explaining it to me. but then at check out i heard, "we are waiting for approval" uggggggh,,,,,,,,,, what a tease! i just want to get this thing done. why does insurance have to be such a pain in the rump? i am glad i have it, but my gosh just give me some good news for once. and then when i went to have my oxycontin filled -the regular price (non-insurance) was $1465...... what??? has anyone else noticed a spike in oxycontin costs? unreal. hope you guys are having a better day than me.
