Managed Care at Its Finest…
Managed care at its finest. Say no more! In today’s world, medical and prescription insurance benefits are a priceless commodity while managing a chronic illness. Following diagnosis, one thing I valued at work was my health benefits. The ability to keep my finances in perspective.
Currently, can the same be said? With the ever-changing policies, carriers and allowed benefits, I find myself being my own advocate in one specific area – prescription benefits. Talk about frustration. Hours upon hours spent on the phone with “specialty drug agents” to get things correct, namely, fill these “specialty drugs” as prescribed and charge our plan’s correctly. Simple concept right? Hardly.
While managing these often tumultuous issues, there is help, believe it or not. Carriers are obligated to provide the services and benefits outlined in our plans. Nothing more, nothing less. We only ask that they do their job and do it well. Exactly what we expect from ourselves.
