I checked with my GI and apparently they only have 1 person who does these. She was off on Friday and just didn't do it yesterday. After I called this AM I got a message about
an hour later saying that she sent the request to insurance and marked it as Urgent so I'll check with insurance tomorrow to make sure they have it. Don't know when it would have gotten done if I hadn't called. Once I get through this process I am definitely going to change GIs and go with one I interviewed a month or so ago. As of Jan 1, 2019 I am going to have to get a new prior authorization because we are changing insurance plans at work. Fun times
My mail order pharmacy is part of my total insurance plan with all co-pays going to the medical insurance deductible, so hopefully they sent it to the right place. Will have to check on that too.
It's crazy what you have to go through just to get the meds you need!
Countess, I hope remi continues to work for you!
I am concerned about
the meds sitting outside when delivered. I don't get home from work most nights until 6 PM and I don't have close neighbors who could pick it up for me. I have visions of it being buried in snow this winter and I wouldn't even know it! As popular as Humira is for so many diseases I can't be the only one with this kind of delivery issue so hoping it all works out.
