STUPID STUPID STUPID

We interupt this blogcast to take a moment to acknowlege how STUPID my health insurance company is ...

WICKED STUPID!!! (as they say up in Northern New England)

For the past 48 hours I have been caught up in the endless loop of "pre-approval" hell to fill my RX for the self-injecting pens of Intron-A which I need 3x a week for the next 47 weeks. I asked my Dr. office BEFORE treatment of high-dose started, to make sure I was pre-approved for Interferon.

I imagine I was or they would not have been able to start the high-dose chemo.

I imagine I was or the insurance company would not have already started sending checks to my Dr. covering my high-dose treatment.

Apprently I am mistaken. Suddenly the insurance company is not aware of my present need for Intron-A.

I have been diagnosed for 5 months!
I have had 2 surgerys, which they covered!
I have had 4 weeks of chemo, which they are covering!

WICKED STUPID!!!! ARG!!!
