I call my helath insurance, cause they keep denying a medication Keppra (seizure med) because she wants me on the name brand of it not the generic. Now mind you I only have enough Keppra to last me until this thursday night. So I call my neuroligist, and they say the same thing that my insurance is rejecting it too, and that my doc needs to appeal it in writing on why I cant take the generic. And my neuroligist dont have samples in either office.:( So I asked her what are they going to do if my health insurance wont allow me to have what I need. She said they will have no choice to admit me into either Cooper or Lordes in camden until I deliver! So they can make sure I dont have a seizure. Cause in the hospital they have name brand Keppra. Ugh this is frustrating....What would you do?
That is crazy BS and this is why we need our health care fixed. I think it's stupid because it will cost them more by having to admit you. Maybe you can tell them that. I personally don't understand why you can't have generic, it is the same as name brand. So if they won't cover it just get the generic so you don't end up in the hospital. I hope the can help you asap!

Yeah, I understand and it pisses me off just hearing about your situation. It's not right! Something has to be done. Can I ask what the reason why your insurance company won't approve this? Darn, since when did they become Doctors?!

Yeah that's crazy and I'm sorry. I would just keep on their butts about and your Doctors too. I really don't know what else to tell you because I have never had a problem with meds before. I would think your Doctor calling or writing on why would be good enough.
