I feel like screaming right now
No matter how prepared I try to get or how on top of things I try to be, I always get screwed by stupid insurance companies. ALWAYS. I woke up this morning feeling a little sick again & called the Doctors office to make sure they could get the prescription faxed over. They decided to give me the lowest dose available & increase it when it no longer worked. Whatever. As long as I had something.
I go to the pharmacy to pick it up & find out that my insurance will only cover 9 pills a month. 9 freakin' pills! This is after I had called to verify benefits when we got the insurance to make sure this medication is covered. NOBODY told me about a 9 pill limit. That is the stupidest thing I've ever heard in my entire life. That would last me a few days - less than a week.
So, my efforts in trying to prepare for HG are thwarted. My goal of fighting the battle before it got out of control was a waste of time. When I asked if I could get what I needed so I didn't have to suffer, hoping I didn't have to prove how sick I was by becoming dehydrated, starving & eventually admitted to urgent care - it was all useless. Now I will have to prove, yet again, how bad HG can get, all the while trying to take care of a 2 year old.
Once I get sick, drop weight & become debilitated, the insurance company has "criteria" that I have to meet. I have to try 2 other medications (that I tried with Logan & they didn't work) before they will approve zofran. Basically, they want me to be on the edge of death again before they will do anything that will really help me out. I hate insurance companies. I really, really, really hate them.
Well, here's to hoping it doesn't get worse & if it does - THANK GOD I have so many friends to help me take care of Logan.
