Insurance companies have made it law that they HAVE to split up boxes of insulin pens? Even if you get 5 pens a month?
My dang doctor also only didn’t order 3 test strips a day, so guess who only got 50 test strips at the pharmacy today? . Was told my needs of test strips more doesn’t matter, even if I tell them, the doctor has to put that in, not me . I cannot have any input in my own medicine.
I’m currently battling a new possible diagnosis, for something I can’t get any medicine for (the whole EPI situation, I’m gonna get that further checked , but there’s no way I can get meds for it if I have it ) and I had a battle with walgreens today, and the pharmacist told me no if ands or buts: I can no longer get an unopened box of insulin pens.
I am starting to understand diabetes burnout, not that I wanna do that to myself, but I get it. When you keep getting the short end of the stick and are specifically told at the pharmacy: You don’t matter if you’re not your doctor.
