Hi All. Hope everyone's well, given the circumstances. I have a question. Lidoderm patches are (imho) heaven's answer to pain. However, they are notoriously not covered by many insurance companies, mine included. At this point, I am buying 6 at a time for close to $60.
OK, so I guess I have 2 questions 1. does anyone know how to appeal this BS denial? 2. Is Lidocaine cream the same as the patch?
Just some unsolicited frustration-why would something that obviously helps so many people be so across-the-board denied (I've appealed, to no avail) that is not addictive (and therefore will save money [since we've established the companies couldn't care less about pain relief) in the long run?
If no one can get them, for whom are they designed?
Sorry for the silly face; couldn't help it. Anyway, any help would be most appreciated. It's my first day here. I'm glad such a forum exists. Thanks in advance and good health to all.
