As many of you know, my daughter has type 1 (insulin dependent) diabetes. Tonight I had to argue with a pharmacist at @cvspharmacy who clearly does not understand the nature of #type1diabetes
and refused to dispense a 30-day supply of the drug that keeps my child alive.
He accused me of “insurance fraud” because I asked to get a 30 day supply, as the prescription was written. The amount prescribed does NOT exceed the maximum amount allowed by insurance. I paid the copay for a 30-day supply, and received a 25-day supply with no allowance for the possibility of a pump failure or sick day.
Y’all, he compared insulin to narcotics. 🤷♀️🤷♀️🤷♀️
This is not acceptable. I should not be having to fight with a pharmacist about how much insulin my child needs. Dispense the prescription as it is written, sir. I promise, no one is abusing insulin in our household. We are not selling it on the street corner. Just do your job and fill the prescription.
