hey all - so i got some information today that requires further explanation. I was getting my break through medication filled today, II get 120 a month, I also get 90 Long acting meds a month, both which don’t control my pain now.... My problem, the insurance rejected paying for the script due to quantity. I’ve been on the same quantity of pills for roughly the last 5-6 years and actually have come down from 180 at the highest point. I go to a small mom & pop pharmacy and according to the owner as of 1/1/18 insurance companies will no longer pay for more than 60 short acting pills a month. I was also told Long acting will be restricted to 90 pills a month. What is scaring him, if a pharmacy does fill more than 60 pills a month that pharmacy will get a visit from the DEA., my pharmacy is in MCLean, Virginia and the DEA is around the corner also. Now can anyone elaborate or clarify if this is correcr? Or can anyone explain it in further detail? I’m trying to contain my feelings OUTRAGE regarding this until I have All the details. Thanks for ready my post and I look forward to all your replies.
