Re: Insurance wrote letter, now doctor wont write scripts

Conductor: Florida may not be far behind on the PMP train. I live in CA, and even if you do everything right, you can have a very hard time finding someone to treat your legit pain. CA is testing the real time monitoring, to cut down on the fraud etc. but I know in the end the patients who need treatment will somehow be adversely affected. You can not find more than a couple of drs that will write rx's for narcotics, and if you find one it's limited to a month of treatment post op, at that point you are forced to find a pm, in an area where there weren't any until a year ago (where I live) we now have 2 drs for this with a population of over 100,000.

Here's some more on this from the DOJ
