We liked our plan, but we can't keep our plan. For many years, all of our children's medications have been covered. Until Obamacare. That all changed after the law passed. For 6 years before the law, a name brand medication my son was on because he doesn't respond to the generic had a $131 copay for a 3 month supply. That all changed after the law. We worked on getting medical necessity approved, but had to pay $532 several times. We just got the yearly approval for that again today, thankfully...otherwise we'd of paid $708 this refill. Before Obamacare: No stress, no anxiety, just get the script and fill it. Now, we must go through this process forever..... it is a life-long med, which means we will have to do this yearly for as long as his is alive. Never knowing if one day it will be denied.
Today, I received a letter stating that all 20 of their mito cocktail meds were denied coverage without the ability to appeal. We liked our plan, but we can't keep it. These medications were covered for years and years before Obamacare passed. Now we are left without coverage...unless our plan changes back. To read the letter their doctor wrote, go to this link: http://catholicteapartyhippie.blogspot.com/2014/08/letter-from-mito-doctor.html You'll see the doctor explains not having these meds can result in death.
The faxes from the doctor were attached to this letter.
This is thanks to Barack Obama, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Kay Hagan and all the RINOs who stood against Ted Cruz and Mike Lee. Those RINOs are just as culpable in the destruction of my family. BECAUSE they failed to STAND UP.
