Good Friday morning, my MS friends. Just need a moment to vent, and y'all, being the only ones who will understand, are sadly going to have to be the recipients of my venting.
In July, I turned 65, which meant I went on Medicare (kicking and screaming), which meant new insurance. Which caused a nearly 4 week delay in my monthly infusion of Tysabri. I never did "perk up" after the infusion that I finally got, and was looking forward to the next one, which would hopefully refill my tank to the level I was used to.
I was scheduled for that infusion today. Yesterday, I get a call from the infusion center...they have not received the medication, so "don't come in". "We'll schedule it when it comes in".
So I call ExpressScripts, who is supposed to dispense the Med....get an automated reply that they are experiencing an unusual amount of calls so call back later. I call my case manager with Biogen who says she will look into it, but she bets the delay is being caused by Harvey.
In the meantime, I wait...and feel myself fading...
Ok, rant over....you may hear from me again in January, when my insurance is changing over to some new provider and I'm sure I'll go through this again.
But I remind myself that I am blessed to have insurance and to live in a country that can provide the medical help I need. I have nothing to complain about
May you all have a blessed weekend
