Day 6:

Okay, after a night’s sleep and a few prayers, I’m in a better mood. I mean how hard can it be to find one plan that will cover most of my medications? Even if they are brand names?

I mean this is America, they say we have the finest Health Care. All I have to do is find a way to get it!

I’m learning more about Part D every day and I know, even if it’s like Alice falling down the rabbit hole, I am going to find my way into the land they live in. Health Care and Congress I mean.

I’ve called about 16 Insurance Companies and none have more than 2 or 3 of my drugs in their formularies. Shall I just fold and let Part D kill me with generics that I’m allergic to? Not yet. Can’t do it. Have to find a solution first!

Today, more insurance companies to call for coverage.

Blue MedicareRX Value (PDP) – Jaclyn – Smart, lovely, with a sense of humor. Still none of my brand names are covered.  Even the generics costs $95 for some cause they’re in Tier 4.

Called Medicare Customer Service is 1-800-633-4227- I told them the way they have it set up, it’s like signing a blank check…What person, even a senior in their right mind would do that?

They switched me over to a supervisor who told me I have to sign up for a plan when all the plans say “NOT IN FORMULARY” but I can put in an exception.  Still nobody knows if the exceptions will be accepted.  Blank check again!

A lovely woman, Kimberly, gave me the number to Quality Improvement Org
1-800-725-9216.

The great thing is that I’ve talked to some of the people who were very helpful–but also as horrified as I was– that there was no way to help.

I just called Quality Improvement.  They only work Mon to Friday 8-4pm.  Too bad.  I’ll have to call tomorrow.  Imagine if my last days are – spent fighting for healthcare with my insurance company?  What a waste of a life!
