Hi health insurance, it’s been a long time

Remember when the health insurance didn't want to pay for my Ritalin two years ago? (What is is now health insurance?) They said I didn't need it and they wouldn't cover it and they're at it again.

Change the way health insurance treats us

Next chapter of how to deal with evil health insurance companies: First we went to pick up the letter my psychologist wrote to explain why I should have a health plan that covers more than just ten percent of my medicine, so they will think about letting me join my mom's health care plan again. … Continue reading Change the way health insurance treats us

I have a problem and you’re not helping

Earlier today I found out that apparently no health insurance wants to cover epilepsy medicine. I visited my neurologist's office this afternoon to ask about the justification we asked him to write for me, the one so I would be accepted back into my mother's health insurance coverage. His secretary didn't remember seeing it but … Continue reading I have a problem and you’re not helping

Health un-insurance

Remember I talked about having to go on my own for healthcare? Well that is just going great. In one month I used all my medicine coverage quota. Because of this, today I had to pay $730 worth of medicine, and we weren't getting all of them. I still have to get another anti seizure … Continue reading Health un-insurance

Well, in the current episode of Health Insurance vs. Maria, I am very frustrated. After we found out that, because of my condition, I can still be covered by the same health insurance plan as my mom, we are trying to get me back in.

Those seizures, and something else

I want to talk to you about a few things tonight: 1- Seizure free for 13 months!!!! That's right, a year and one month! I didn't celebrate yesterday because it was too late when I noticed what day it was, but now I can say I've been seizure free for over a year. 2- My … Continue reading Those seizures, and something else

What is it now health insurance?

Everything was going great since we resolved the mess with the Health insurance, or I thought we solved it; but noooo, they want to mess with me again. This time it's not really an emergency because it's just Ritalin, but come on, do they want to keep messing with the TBI patient? Now they say … Continue reading What is it now health insurance?

I call this a victory

Today we had to go all the way to the health care store to argue my case, and I was pumped to argue my case and fight.  We got there, and the place was empty, it was Thursday afternoon, but we still had to wait because they only had one or two people helping customers. … Continue reading I call this a victory

The battle continues- Day 3

Well, the health insurance still hasn't approved my request for the anti-seizure medicine. My epilepsy won't wait for them to decide to approve to help pay for my medicine. If I didn't have an angel watching over me at the pharmacy, I would be in crisis mode, which could cause a seizure. This is totally … Continue reading The battle continues- Day 3

My battle with health insurance- Day 2

My neurologist sent the pharmacy the justification for my need of the anti-seizure medicine yesterday afternoon. The pharmacy didn't get around to getting it to the health insurance until today. They could be excused if they didn't know my need for the medicine was like, yesterday, if we hadn't been asking for it for days. … Continue reading My battle with health insurance- Day 2

Why can’t I have my meds?

Having health insurance is something we have all come to need, but a big pain in the b...ack. I just changed my health insurance coverage because I'm about to turn 26, at which age I can no longer  be covered by the same plan as my parents. So as soon as we could, we went … Continue reading Why can’t I have my meds?
