Insurance-related question
Mon, 04-04-2011 - 5:58pm

I have an arrhythmia and very high blood pressure. I have been without insurance for over a year and am out of refills (I've been out for many months now). My physician won't authorize any more refills until I've been seen. I just received notification that I've been approved for insurance starting on the first of this month. The problem is, because the high blood pressure and arrhythmia are considered pre existing conditions, I cannot see a doctor

Sorry I didn't respond sooner.

I was wondering how you made out.

My pharmacy is really good when it comes to medications and your need for them.

So many people where I live have the problem of no doctor to prescribe their medications.

I was so glad to finally find someone after my family doctor retired unexpectedly.

Hope you have found some answers and a resolution to your problem.

I know that many drug companies help when you cannot afford your medications.

Some doctors are also very good at giving samples to patients to.

Please let us know how you are doing...
