Need to Pay Out-Of -Pocket For Lost/Ruined MedsMar 25 2014
I do not have a pituitary gland. It was removed due to a tumor. I then had radiation when the tumor started growing back. BCBS knows this because they paid for it. I take a lot of meds due to this chronic condition. I made a mistake simple as that. I long hard day and somehow after I took my nightly injection I placed it in the freezer instead of the fridge. According to BCBS once I receive the meds if anything happens(lost, stolen or ruined), it is my responsibility to replace them at $500.00 dollars. So I have to go almost 2 weeks without meds which will mess me up for close to a month because of their ridiculous rules. Mistakes happen. Also the entire way their system is set up is a rip-off. My plan says that I have a copay of $30.00 for specialty drugs but the vial only lasts 25 days and they make me pay the extra 3 vials per year because of the way the vials are measured. That isn't my fault. My plan has me paying for $30 for a 30 supply. Hours and hours on hold and nothing but the run around and in the end. Go call the insurance commissioner I can give you the number if you like. WOW!
