As some of you may know, there is a medicine that I have to inject every day. When I had Cigna, I'd get a 3 month supply for $20. Cool. Never a problem. Then, my job dropped Cigna and the only real choice I had was Avmed. Now, I can only get a one month supply at a time and the cost jumped to $30! I know I shouldn't complain because without insurance, my meds run over $1000 for a 30 day supply. But still!
So last week, I called to have my script refilled. No problem, they ship it and I'd get it Thursday. Well, Thursday came and went and no meds.
I called the prescription service this morning and at first they said they had it scheduled to ship out the 9th! HUH?!? I told them, uh...no...check again. I was supposed to get it YESTERDAY. The woman checked and it seems there is some kind of problem with Avmed. They need some kind of "authorization". WTF? Fine. I told her I'd call Avmed.
So I called Avmed.
"Is this a new prescription?"
"Not quite. I've been on it for like 2 years and have never had anything like this happen."
"I'll give it to my supervisor."
"Well, how am I going to know when this is cleared up? I've already missed 2 shots and we have a hurricane coming. I need my meds!"
"I'll call you."
Hmm. I tried calling my doc's office, but of course he's closed on frigging Fridays! I was super pissed and this was all before 9:30am!
At 10:30, the script service called and said they'll be shipping it out tomorrow and I'll get it by noon. YAY! Then about 1/2 hour later Avmed called to say it's all straightened out. Yeah, I know. I asked what the problem was, and you know...she couldn't tell me.
Dumb asses. If my meds don't come tomorrow, heads are going to roll. I don't need to worry about that on top of Ike. Stupid dumb asses...
