7:10. I went to the doctor on Friday. Diagnosed with PPD...again. Yeah, big surprise I know. Took me out of work until August 1, which is a relief.
They gave me an Rx for Wellbutrin which was dropped at the pharmacy that morning. Jon went back to pick it up before he went to work, only to be told they need "preauthorization" before filling it and are waiting for the doctor to get back to them.
On Saturday, I call and it is STILL not ready because they never got the form back from the doctor. So I call the insurance company to find out what the deal is - I've been on Wellbutrin several times and never had an issue. I forgot that out prescription carrier has been changed in the last year.
I was told that ANY antidepressant has to be "preauthorized" and they need a form completed by the doctor stating the medicine is "medically necessary".
Um, you have one...ITS CALLED A FUCKING PRESCRIPTION YOU DOUCHEBAGS!!!!!
I told the rep that was a wonderful policy to have for depressed people needing antidepressants...guess its a good thing I'm not suicidal!
