My ins. cut my pain med's from 3 a day to 2 a day. They will no longer pay for 3 a day. Plus my husband just filled my script lst month it was $35 for 60 pills now it's $88! last year at tis time when I was still "allowed" by my ins. (as if they're the doctor's now) to take 3 a day it was only $10!! That was foe 90 pills! Do I write my Senator or what? This is not right! I'm going to a pain center where you agree to take random drug tests, they have to answer to the DEA, so I don't understand why my ins. company is basically taking my med's away from me, by making them unaffordable. I am so angry, that's not their job. have any of you faced this and what re you doing about it. I feel like I'm being punished for having chronic pain. The med is oxycontin, by the way. I've treid many other's and I either couldn't tolerate them or they didn't help. Butbthat's not the point. first I should be able to get the med's my doctor presrcibes, the dose and the amount. And how can they justify raising the price so high, while telling me how many I can have? That's just wrong, I'm P****ed" off! All I want is to have so kind of quality of life, I', already homebound, on disability. I have to fight evry 3 mons. w/ my ins. to continue P.T> they don't get that I have a chronic cndition. They said there is no "box" to fill in for it. My ins. has no trouble raising my rates each year. Thanks for letting me vent. I live in Tn., maybe I can start a petition or something. This is dicrimination as far as I'm concerned. just because some people abuse this drug doesn't mean the rest of us have to be punished. I have blue Advantage as my medicare supplement by the way.
