I copied this information for you. Most people are unable to self inject. Your insurance company should have covered this and personally, I would appeal the decision. Hope this info helps and best wishes!
"How should I use Lovenox?
Lovenox is injected under the skin. You may be shown how to use injections at home. Do not self-inject this medicine if you do not fully understand how to give the injection and properly dispose of used needles and syringes.
Lovenox is sometimes injected into a vein through an IV.
You should be sitting or lying down while receiving an Lovenox injection.
Do not mix Lovenox with other medications in the same syringe unless your doctor tells you to.
Use a different place on your stomach each time you give the injection. Your care provider will show you the best places on your body to inject the medication. Do not inject into the same place two times in a row. Do not inject Lovenox into a muscle.
Use a disposable needle only once. Throw away used needles in a puncture-proof container (ask your pharmacist where you can get one and how to dispose of it). Keep this container out of the reach of children and pets.
To be sure Lovenox is not causing harmful effects, your blood may need to be tested often. Your stool (bowel movement) may also need to be tested. Visit your doctor regularly.
If you need surgery, dental work, or a medical procedure (especially with spinal or epidural anesthesia), tell the doctor or dentist ahead of time that you are using Lovenox. You may need special care to prevent bleeding. Store at room temperature away from moisture and heat.
Do not use any medication that is discolored or that has particles in it. Call your doctor for a new prescription"
