February 18, 2010 in Health Care Crisis
I’ve got a minor health insurance crisis on my hands, one that I learned about a few days ago when I tried to have a prescription filled. The following is a tale of bureaucratic tedium and frustration for only the heartiest of souls.
My Blue Cross HMO New England plan, unbeknownst to me, was canceled on February 12, retroactive to January 1. The prescription medication I take to control my asthma normally costs $50, the price of my co-pay. Without insurance, it’s $250.
