Is it not time we take back our health care. Case in point, see the two pills. I have been taking the little oval one for a few years because of my heart rate was too fast. With our insurance if you take a maintenance medication, you have to order it through a mail order company. Why can I not go to the nearest drug store? I can see how it would be kind if you did not live near one to get your meds through the mail. But if your area is like Nashville, then every corner there is a drug store and also all the grocery stores have a pharmacy.
I got the big round pill in the mail with a tiny note at the top of the instructions saying "You might notice a change in your medicine." Heck this was nothing similar except the color. Not even the number on the back was the same. Since I have to take two a day, I was afraid they had sent the wrong meds. I called and after going through one of those long long menu, I get a person on the line. OOPs, they could not answer, so they connected me to the pharmacy. A tech came on the line and she could not answer the question so I was placed on HOLD, she came back on the line and said this was the correct meds just a different manufacturer who had decided to change the shape and size. I asked what was in it that made the size over twice the size of the previous meds. She just repeated the answer to the previous question. By this time, I was out done with the whole process.
If I need something other than a maintenance med, I can go to my local pharmacy where a real live Pharmacist is on duty. They could have answered all my questions and I have found most are very nice and friendly. Not Robo Meds like I had to deal with and still not all my questions answered.
The Kitty Justice would be to light a fire under our Representatives to listen to US THE PEOPLE and not the Insurance Companies. The Pharmacist, Doctors spent LOTS OF HOURS IN SCHOOL so they should rule not some clerk in an Insurance office.
