United Healthcare / Pacificare Complaint - Bait And Switch - United Healthcare / Pacificare
COLORADO SPRINGS, COLORADO -- United Healthcare has actually been very good for me. They have always been good when it comes to flexibility in my treatments.
However, after they merged with Pacificare, I have to get EVERYTHING pre-approved. I wanted the convenience of a PPO so that I could keep the same doctors, but now I'm having to justify all of my medications and Pacificare has decided that they know more about what I need than my doctor does.
Just because a particular medication is expensive, Pacificare decides that they don't want to cover it. Anything to pad their bottom line. So, now I have to come up with over $1000 / month for medication that United used to pay for. Pathetic!
