Mail order prescription screw ups...
Every 3 months I jump through a couple hours worth of hoops to get a particular prescription filled. It happens to be quite expensive.
I have used mail order pharmacies (Express-Scripts, CVSCaremark, Medco) for over 15 years b/c of the cost savings. In the past couple of years I have found it harder and harder to get medication that I rely on daily. Scripts get 're-written' without contacting myself or the physician (quantities reduced, refill numbers reduced, expiration dates changed.)
We all know the insurance companies, drug companies and politicians are in bed with each other looking for ways to make money at the cost of even decent health care for patients. What I'm wondering is if I'm the only one who feels there is some direct collusion between the insurance companies and the pharmacies that would, if exposed, would be considered anti-competitive/anti-trust, or even felony theft?
I get such BS answers from supervisors that they just stop speaking b/c they are embarrassed.
