Ok, I am finally a happy camper.
I spent all day, yet again, hanging out at my new g.i. docs office, so I could speak with him.
I DID IT.
I Left his office with a Humira Prescript
ion, I dropped it off at my pharmacy, and gave them all the paperwork needed to file for the copays.
I met with a slight snag, but one I had anticipated.
The med needs something called a prior authorization. The pharmacy has faxed this to my g.i. doctor, I am hoping they get it filled out tomorrow, I doubt they will get to that form today, but, well nvm.
Once that happens, once it is taken care of, then I have to wait 24hours for it to process, and then... I will be leaving the pharmacy with my Humira.
I cannot believe how hard I have had to push for this stuff. I started on this biological journey back in May of this year, and had to part with my older g.i. doc, who I really liked. He just refused to give me the stuff, and I could not change his mind. I am just now this close. How many hoops I have had to jump through, how many obstacles have stood in my way, Geez. I mean I don't mind being the squeaky wheel, but this is kinda ridiculous, and I so hate bothering people like that.
I have to ask; Is it like this for everyone, anyone else care to share?
I doubt I will get the stuff tomorrow, but Saturday is possible, and would be nice. It would be a really awesome birthday present(Saturday is BD), proably the best one I have ever received. But just knowing I am finally gonna get the stuff, is enough to make all this effort worth wild.
