Last week, my pharmacy sent me an email telling me a month's supply of my TD medicine would cost $2,373.06—more than my monthly income
This week, my insurance company mailed me a letter
It gives a whole bunch of reasons why they've decided not to cover the cost of my medicine—it says my TD isn't bad enough
I am on long-term disability from the government for my TD—the US gov't thinks my TD is bad enough to pay me (less than minimum wage) to rest because I cannot work due to my tardive dyskinesia!
My doctor has prescribed the medication/has filled out preauthorizations, etc. Where have you corporations taken her power in this? My doctor thinks I need the medicine. Now my insurance company and my pharmacy say I don't need (or cannot get) the medicine
I'm lying face-down on the couch writing this. I cannot drive. I cannot work. I am in pain. I have a medicine that addresses my problem (moving uncontrollably)—I am trying to get a medicine that works even better. I am not in a bad position. I am capable of thinking and writing—so I am in a better position than many in my situation (we pay for health insurance, go to the doctor, and yet can't get our medicine)
Think of the people who have it worse. They are crying out to you now. I am writing what they say
