thanks so much for info nasalady!
What glitch did you have with disability? I think there's a way to appeal the insurance company to pay for meds. Have you done that?
My CA short-term disability payments suddenly stopped, and they said I needed an update from my doctor. I tried to get one of my doctors to fill out a form and send it to SDI but the same week I gave him the forms, he and some of his colleagues in the same building moved the office several blocks away and they LOST the forms or something! So I was without the disability for about
a month, but I do work part-time so we had some income, fortunately!
Eventually it got straightened out and the disability payments started up again....
As to Anthem Blue Cross, I have appealed, twice, and been denied twice. I'm now planning to file for an IMR (Independent Medical Review by the state of California), and I have Senator Barbara Boxer's office promise to help with this, so I'm still hopeful.
I wish you better luck with everything!
