11. it could happen, but i think it is unlikely. a lot of pharmacists

will advance you a few pills if your script is interrupted, so that you wont go through withdrawal.

my daughter is still on her dad's policy, but also medicaid eligible, so they pay her co-pays. i am also on that plan. we take a few of the same meds, but she takes way more than i do. she is young, and also very complex mess. she has a lot of docs, takes a fair amount of pain shit, and we are sure they have her tagged as a drug seeker.
the insurance co occasionally holds up a refill for her, and it is a couple days of hell. they have never done this to me.

however, they have never flat out just cut her off a drug.
short of losing her insurance altogether, that really shouldnt happen.

and of course, if she should find herself in that situation, she should report to the er. they could treat her withdrawal symptoms.
