Whosit, my insurance requires a preauth for my breakthrough since it is so expensive. Mine are approved for a year at a time and I just went through a new pre-auth as well. Don't feel bad I waited 2 weeks as well and finally when I heard it was approved, I went to get it and when the pharmacist ran it through, it was denied!
It turned out the wrong strength was approved. Now I know my doc calls instead of faxes that way I know from the doc when it was approved and I'm sure he was looking at my chart when he called so I blame the insurance company. It used to be that the particular drug had to be approved then I could get whatever strength my doc gave me. Now if he changes the strengh I have to get a whole new pre-auth. Plus they also denied another breakthrough that I was taking in conjunction and that has really affected my activities. It's pretty sad when the insurance companies are dictating my pain management.
