Major headache!!!

I'm beyond words at this point - but suffice it to say... right now I HATE insurance companies.

Mine is making it very difficult to get my Lovenox refilled. Because for some reason they just don't see the need for me to be on Lovenox.

Keep your fingers crossed that the Peri's office can get it all sorted out.

Sigh. BTDT. Mine paid for two weeks worth, but would pay for heparin for as long as I'd need it. My MFM wrote/faxed a letter and had it taken care of by the time I ran out of my two week supply. You *should* be able to get it approved with a letter from the specialist - especially if they've been covering up to this point.

Good luck! I know what an unwanted hassle this is right now!

Ugh- you mean the prescription isn't enough? The insurance company has an opinion??? Who are they to say what drugs you should be on?

(I'm Canadian, so healthcare is totally different here...)

Stupid insurance company. I hope that your doctor is able to get them to see the light!

I hate insurance companies. They wanted to deny my in depth ultrasound with my first born- after the doctor recommended I get it. Insurance companies are only in it for the money.

Crossing my fingers for you, I hope you can keep your meds.

Oh honey I'm so sorry. I'm dreading going through this again! They told me I used my "lifetime maximum" of Lovenox when my hematologist still required me to be on it for 2 more weeks! Um, really? Cause if I'm pg I'll be on it for 9 more months! Hate them. Hate them. Hate them.
