Have you made changes to your healthcare plan for 2018?
I'm gonna have to because my current insurer has stopped paying for some of the medications I have had to get apart from the VA system. I've had 2 ER visits in the last 6 months and was prescribed different drugs I was supposed to get at one of the 2 local pharmacies. The one I usually go to said they wouldn't take my insurance card as payment, so I went to the other and they said the same thing.
I have also noticed that my VA appointments are being spread farther apart. I used to be told the doctor wanted to see me in 4 months and the actual appointments were closer to 5 months away. Now they tell me 5 months and the actual appointments are scheduled almost 7 months away. I have an appointment Monday that was originally scheduled for early November, but was rescheduled because my primary care physician has been changed to a new guy - the 3rd new doctor in the last 2 years.
But I guess my health care plan hasn't changed otherwise; I still plan to keep sucking air through a hose in my nose for a good while longer.
