New Pharmacy

I just need to vent. As you know if you've been reading I had to switch insurances on december 1st, I was no longer able to be carried on my dads. So I was able to get it from my work. I received all my info and card etc but found out that I had to use a different pharmacy for Enbrel to be delivered. This meant I needed to get a new pre auth and a new prescription faxed to them once approved. OK so that took time, this new pharmacy said they received it yesterday, cool they have all the info so I asked to schedule a delivery. Well this idiot woman on the phone was telling me how it needs to be "processed still" and they need to wait for whatever reasons 9 days WTF? I told her to make it urgent because I only have 1 shot left that I take today so I need more by next thursday. This just really frustrates me, I hate how insurance companies have no problem taking your damn money but when it comes to getting medications it can be such a freaking hassle. It just drives me nuts, and going through all this is just a reminder of how much i HATE having RA. I just hate it so much. & I'm feeling depressed now.



  1. I absolutely hate dealing with insurance! It's frustrating when a person on the other end of the phone (probably making $10/hr) is dictating how soon or whether or not you get your medicine. There is very little compassion, it's all about money. Hang in there.

    On the other hand, if it was for one of their family members, you know that they would be pulling every string out there to get their meds for them.

  2. I'm going through the same thing. I just switched insurance and it's taken me 2 weeks to get my methotrexate. I had to buy some without going through my insurance- and pay twice as much!- just so I could be sure to have some. It shouldn't be this hard to get medicine! Why would I want to inject myself with chemo if it wasn't medically necessary?!
