Medco Complaint - Medco Waits For Insurance To Expire And Avoids Filling Prescriptions. They're Not Incompetent. They're Crooks!
ATLANTA, GEORGIA -- My insurance expired because I changed jobs. I refilled a 3 month supply of Prevacid, which is expensive. Medco sent a few other things for my wife and kids - and omitted mine - three times. And they cashed my check. And I still don't have my meds and they tried to tell me that my insurance expired and I must pay fill price. What?!!!?? They cashed my check a week before the insurance expired. They lied about sending me the meds, three times. They're not stupid - they're a bunch of crooks. And so are the insurance companies behind them. Something needs to change with the medical industry in this country. I'm European and where I come from medicine is a business of caring. In America, medicine is just a business, full of too many greedy people and not enough doctors who actually want to apply medicine as healers.
Medco is a prime example of the avarice of American medical care. American politicians say that European free medical care doesn't work? It does work. Ask any European and they'll tell you it's slow and complain about it. But after that same European has got thousands of dollars in medical bills in America, for minuscule ailments, I will guarantee their opinion might well be very different.
I don't ever remember getting sub-standard medical care or having felt ripped off in any country other country - I do in America. It's a disgrace!
