Welcome to HealingWell, Margeurite. I've never worked with MediCal, so don't know what to say about
that. My only suggestion is to contact the Gi and ask if he can provide you with enough samples of Asacol to hold you until your prescript
ion is filled. I'm assuming that Asacol is not on the formulary Medical uses, so they have to have a justification from the doctor and then do the approval process. Since the GI doesn't normally take MediCal patients, he probably didn't know the procedure and this slowed things down.
Call him and see if he has samples you can take.
Moderate to severe left-sided UC (21 cm) diagnosed 2001.

In remission since April, 2006. Remicade has been my wonder drug.

I'm assuming since you have Medi-Cal you may be going to a county hospital or clinic. Try to find out if the place you're going to has medical social workers (not a Medi-Cal SW, but a professional social worker that works in the medical feild). I know a social worker that works in medicine and the stuff she knows and what she can get done is amazing.
