Pre-authorize this … and pre-authorize that. ​Pre-authorization used to be for expensive surgical procedures … now it is for everything. The only cure to this problem is to completely ban this process … doctors are there to evaluate your medical condition, and treat it … not to fight with your insurance company. Call your representative and tell them that you want a complete ban on this process. As long as you have not reached your benefit limit…your insurance should not be dictating what care you should be getting.

Here is a link for pre-authorization forms

Discount cards / Coupons
There is a discount card for every new drug. There is a discount card issued by every pharmacy. There are discount cards lying around in your doctor’s office. There are discount cards that you can print off the internet. Ask you pharmacist for these discounts whenever you are filling a prescription. Once a discount has been entered you should not have to present the card again, till the card has expired. The discount card may get you a good discount on one drug but not another. Sometimes there is no discount at all. You can compare rates at the pharmacies at this site:

Costco and Sams Club have lower rates on many medications … and you do not have to be a member to fill your prescription from them.

Doctors and pharmacies may not be enough to get you health care … here are some links to get you the medication you need … there is more promise than assistance.
