Navitus Health Solutions - Worst Prescription Drug Coverage
SEATTLE, WASHINGTON -- I just started receiving benefits again at my place of employemt and in the eight months that did not have insurace through my job they switched from Express Scripts (awsome company) to Navitus. I am a type 1 diabetic and tried to fill my one touch ultra test strips and was told that they are not covered under my RX drug plan that I have to change the type of test strips that I use to their "preferred" brand.
Excuse me? You are not my doctor, you do not know my history and why I use the supplies that I use. Navitus told me that I can have my doctor sign my authorization form and they will cover them at 50% of cost, that is $186.00 for a 1 month supply of test strips. If I use their brand it would cost me $20.00. I was asked why I did not want to change and I told them becasue I have an insulin pump and my one touch meter talks to my pump and I download it to a computer and my doctor can look at it. The only thing I can do is get mail order if I want to pay less.
I think this is terrible and I do not have a choice about being diabetic and paying for these supplies. If I don't check my blood sugar I cannot take insulin and then I get sick. If you are thinking of getting this RX drug plan do not do it. They are terrible!
