Yesterday evening I went to pick up my new drug that got prescribed yesterday.
Not covered by my insurance.
Well, of course it's not! OF COURSE. What was I thinking, assuming that just because my doctor found it appropriate, the insurance company would agree?
So I didn't buy it. $470 for a once month supply! Umm, no. For that I could just get surgery. What the heck?
This morning I emailed my doctor to see if she could write a letter to the insurance company requesting they cover the drug. When I lived in Denver a doctor did that for me to cover a medicine for my bladder issues and it worked. So who knows.
