Old Hat -- is this the link you were talking about
Well, my saga continues. Doc's office said that UHC requires that the Inflectra is ordered from a specialty pharmacy and sent to my infusion center instead of the infusion center providing it. The specialty pharmacy (Accredo) requires 2 business days to process new orders. They just got the order this afternoon. The med has to be at the infusion center by 2PM on 1/25 in order for me to get my infusion on 1/26. I have no idea when they are going to ship. I did call Accredo today and told them I would pay for priority shipping for this first order if they can get it there on time. Now I have to wait for them to call me saying it's ready to ship. Well I probably won't wait -- I will be a pita about
this. If I miss the 26th I asked my infusion center if I could get in on the 27th if nec and they have some spots I could take. My fingers are crossed that I can get the infusion my the 27th at the latest. Other wise I would have to wait until at least the 30th if they can fit me in.
I am trying hard not to stress about
this, but it's difficult. Bad enough that I have to change meds. But now it looks like my infusion is going to be delayed too. I told my benefits admin that I hoped my company was saving a boatload of money by changing insurance because I sure am not seeing any positives -- the premiums are much higher than the old insurance and I am getting worse coverage. She said that she was against the change, but it wasn't up to her.
Will let you know what happens.
