Questions on how your insurance deals with some GERD related medications and procedures...and do you want to bang your head against the wall??
I took prevacid for years and went to get a refill and all the of the sudden I had to get "approval" from my insurance to get the prescript
Then I switched to Zegerid, they wanted approval too before they would fill the script
. I'm still waiting, it's been over two weeks since the paperwork was submitted, for official insurance approval on the prescript
ion. In the meantime I HAD to get it filled and pay $140 for 30 pills. Grrrr..
Now I'm having a fundo on the 29th and I called my insurance to make sure I didn't need to be pre-approved or all that jazz and they said "nope". So now I'm wondering if after I have the surgery they're going to come back and say "oh, btw that's considered elective surgery and we won't cover it". The surgeon's office should have checked with my insurance too, right? I mean they want to get paid so I would think they want to make sure my insurance is going to cover it. I'm getting anxious about
my surgery so now I'm getting paranoid that I've over looked something....I can't help it!!
They didn't list the fundo as "elective" in my insurance book.
Maybe I just need a Valium.....
