Insurance VENT...

With my last pregnancy I had hyperemesis.. this pregnancy when I started getting signs of it I started taking Zofran right away so that I would not end up loosing 22 lbs in 3 weeks and in the hospital again.. not good! So.. been taking them and then today called to get a refill and the ins company wont cover them.. they will only cover 30 pills every 24 days even tho your supposed to take 3 per day. I have only been taking 2 per day..and was going to take them till I moved (id be 14 weeks) then ween off.. I really cant get sick now.. since i have been better the last week... So.. now either I have to take 1 pill per day and pay like 50 dollars for 1 pill or not take any at all.. I am soooo scared to get sick again.. I just started to bawl and cry.. I dont wanna get sick!! I was just starting to feel better!!

Re: Insurance VENT...

Ahhhh Rachele I'm sorry to hear that! Insurance can be a real pain in the butt sometimes...make that most of the time! Don't they get it! It is cheaper/better/healthier for them to pay for the meds than deal with the cost and other issues involved in a hospital stay

Sounds like it is time for a price inflation on Fuzzi Fannies I'd pay more, especially for a good cause!!

I'd be on the phone - for sure! She makes a great point. Them paying for your pills now will end up SAVING them money in the long run especially if you get sick. Doesnt make a lick of sense.

Re: Insurance VENT...

We just had to fight with our insurance co to pay for dds medication. They were paying for 5mg & the Dr wanted to increase it to 10mg & then increase it to 20mg if needed & he wrote the RX like that. The insurance said just give her 20mg! I had to explain WHY we dont want 20mg right away, etc & they finally agreed to pay for it or it would have been $250 out of pocket each month!

Re: Insurance VENT...

I know nothing about Zofran, but if it comes in different doses then you could have the doc up your prescription dose then split them in half before you take them. A lot of prescriptions have different dose levels and that way your insurance company would still pay for a "months" supply, but it would actually be twice as much.

That is a great idea!!
