I HATE insurance companies!!

**Now before I start this rant I must say I am VERY blessed to actually have insurance (albeit a TERRIBLE company) I still have it**

I get a call last week from my new Dr. She said I have to come into her office to discuss my migraines and something about the insurance company.

Well turn out ASSHAT insurance company DECLINED paying for my prescriptions for my medication for my migraines because they claim its a "Pre-existing condition"

Well dumb asses of coarse its a PRE-EXISTING condition!!! I have also ALWAYS (since I was 14) taken birth control too to CONTROL my headaches but you have NO PROBLEMS paying for that?? (because a baby would cost them LOTS of money)

So the Dr had to fill out 101 forms and stuff so that the insurance will cover my medication.

Its really disheartening to have to deal with this. I am glad my Dr is a trouper and says this happens ALL THE TIME with insurance companies which just really boggles my mind.

Oh and I have a MAJOR sinus infection. So I am barfing my face off, fever, oh yeah a great day! And I am on antibiotics for the next 10 days.

Blah! Sometimes insurance can be so frustrating and ridiculous in terms of what they will and what they wont cover.

Wow am I sorry to hear that you are feeling lousy! And I could not agree more about insurance companies - they almost always let you down.

migraines suck, yet insurance companies suck even more. Just don't ever wish for national healthcare, if you think dealing w/private companies is bad think about dealing with the govt. It's enough to make your head spin.

This is why we need a national health care system.
