they keep denying my CD meds and things needed for my CD arthritis...they deny even with a prior auth from docs and mult letters...that was for the lidoderm patches for my joints...I can understand Humira maybe being a hassle due to its price and the fact I need it weekly, needed mult letters to get it approved)...Pentasa again needed a prior auth but with just the PA they approved it...entocort needed prior auth and letter of medical nec...but got approved now that generic isnt fairing well with me and my doc needs to taper me off it since it has been 1 year on the max dose he wants me to go back on Imuran which I havent been on since at least 06...I was on it for a min of 12 yrs before had many issues with it and my WBC tot he point I nearly needed a bone marrow biopsy so scared as heck to go back on it ...but know it is what I need so I was at the doc wednesday he escript
ed it I got a txt from my pharamcy saying they needed more info so I called to see what info and they WHAT A SURPRISE need a prior auth...
so then I call the pharmacy today still hearing nothing they tell me now they are just waiting to hear back from the insurance now the GI did his thing it was going thru.....just to get a call a few hours later from the insurance automated system telling me that they denied it being covered and it will need to have an appeal placed well my freaking GI nor his staff work on Fridays but I call anyway hoping to get someone and maybe they could get the ball rolling...well I got a person but since my docs office ppl are out I have to wait til Monday...now he wanted to run labs at specific intervals after starting the meds and see me after 6 weeks of being on it and have my appt and I made other appts for that same day since it is 40 miles from home as is the VA for my husband...so he set his up that day too.
I was feeling really well since tues this week now tonight I am in lots of pain again just took a dilaudid for it, took 1 of my percosets earlier when It started but it has since intensified and the percoset I took about 6 hours ago.
just frustrated and needed to vent
