Okay I refilled my meds yesterday. $41.88 for 15 day supply. I tried to get pfizer to send me some free ones, but the said I had prescription coverage so they couldn't send me any. MVP my health insurance doesn't cover mental health, so won't pay for them. For a months supply it will be about $84.00. I really can't afford that.

I have suspended going to the therapist. I couldn't afford the $45 per visit, even though we dropped down to every other week.

I have not had alot of luck finding a job. Granted I haven't been pounding doors either, but I'm still working on my room. Sleeping on the air mattress is really getting to me. I started putting my windows in today, and found some other problems I had to deal with. (Basically they just don't fit tight, right, or whatever.) I guess I'm too much of a perfectionist, but I really feel the problems should be taken care of when found rather than wait, and find there is bigger problems.

Anyway, I was on the MVP website today, and I saw some fine print about MVP covering meds if the doctor thought they were important. (or some such dribble.) I sent them an email asking generally about it. Like how to go about getting approval for un-covered meds.

I also asked them why my Health insurance premium went down from $170.84 to $141.80. I'm a little concerned if I start bugeting for this amount that it's going to go back up again.

Anyway, I was wondering if anyone else had any suggestions on how to get MVP to pay for my meds. My doc suggested she write the prescription for one of the non-mental symptoms that the meds cover, but I'm not sure if they will go for that.

I sometimes think maybe I should just forgo the insurance and pay for everything myself. Since they aren't paying for the meds anyway. BUT then I think what happens if I get hit by a bus or something? I also was going to call the doc and ask her to write me a new prescription for my allergy medicine. Hopefully the insurance will cover that.

*sigh* ( I gotta run, Dad's nagging about dinner and getting my room done.)

Hopefully, you're collective brains can come up with something I haven't.
