Has anyone on medical assistance have to sign a 'contract' with a middleman insurance company(mine was united health care MA version)I went to the doctors last thursday,I found out I have a bacterial infection,pinkeye and a UTI.I had to get antibiotics,and I was told to sign for it like on an electronic signature pad like people do for credit cards.I was told it was Walgreen's it is new protocol, don't worry about it, it's what MA wants you to sign..So I signed it because I was sick,after signing it .I felt uneasy, feeling bad about just signing it. So I went back to read what I just signed,it stated that they may or may not pay for my medication.
I am pissed,I had to get the antibiotic and the floconazole propianate to keep the snot from swelling my throat or I won't be able to swallow. They gave me the meds charged me a few bucks yet every one of my meds had pre-authorizations required on it. Never had ALL my meds require a pre-authorization before. Especially antibiotics. WTF.
I called my doc and told her about it.They sent the authorization.I won't know until monday if they will pay it or not...It is very strange. what if they don't pay? I'm broke I can't pay.I am on disability. If anyone else here is a pharmacist who's required clients to sign the 'contract' or finds out what's going on or why,please tell me.
And if anyone here had something like this happen to them please post it here.
This bugs me it feels like the pig 1 percent are going to fuck over the disabled.
