This is just toooo pathetic to be true. I started on Monday trying to fill a prescription for Lyrica (I'm not singing yet!). Needed Prior Authorization from doctor. Pharmacy called doctor with information. Doctor called provider # and was told to fax information back. So far, everyone did everything right? Right. Pharmacy kept running it through but it was repeatedly denied. I'm out of the prescription after 3 weeks of titrating up and off Neurontin. Seemed to be working pretty good, of course, how can you really know in 3 weeks? Here I am on Friday, still sucking air. This drug is nearly $200 and I'm in the middle of the donut hole (Medicare Part D). Even if the insurance does okay this, they are only going to kick in $15 to $20 bucks. On a conference call yesterday between insurance company and the doctor's office, (I'm not to say anything but listen) the insurance co. said that Lyrica was only for 4 different diagnoses - diabetic neuropathy, da da da da and fibromyalgia. Helloooo, the doctor's office doesn't have a dx of fibromyalgia for me. I've been mistreated and insulted for almost 20 years with the dx of fibro and now they have no record of it? Don't know what I'm going to do about the doctor's records, but I do know I'm not donating anymore money to Coventry Insurance Co. or their subsidiary of AdvantraRx come the first of the year. Is it just my imagination or have I been treated for the most expensive case of hypochondria ever? Thank you for reading this rant. Just couldn't pass up the opportunity to let you know, maybe we should all take a look at our medical records ASAP.
