Premera Blue Cross Complaint - Cruel And Unusual Punishment
SEATTLE, WASHINGTON -- Who do you complain to when you have a problem with your insurance company? I have been on the same anti-depressant for several years. PBC has covered my prescription. But it was so expensive thru them that a drug representative friend helped me out for over a year so that I wouldn't end up in debt. After my stash ran out, I tried to refill my prescription but the insurance company told me that I needed Pre-Authorization from my doctor before they would fill it. So, no prescription. My doctor filled out the form last week. PBC keeps saying they never got it and that my doctor hasn't sent it in. My doctor said that they are strong-arming us so that she will go with a cheaper drug. But this one is working. Now I find myself in withdrawal - sweaty, shaky, dizzy, nauseous, and PBC doesn't care. Would they prefer that I end up in the emergency room? Especially when I find myself zoning out while driving?
Or, should I find some other drugs to make myself feel better? And then they would have to pay for the long-term health problems associated with that? But, no, they won't help pay for my prescription but prefer to pay thousands more for other things. They are so stupid.
