... not medically nescessary. what is a medical reason that the insurance company will agree with my prescription? thanks Dan. Also my levels were 500 while i was on Testim and three days after i stopped they dropped to 222 how can i convince the insurance that it is needed.
The insurance may have denied your request because they are greedy and do not want you to be well. . . . .they want you to keep trying other medications so that you will comtinue to pay more money. . . .if that makes sense?! But to seriously answer your question: The insurance is not going to do the work for you. . . once you have gone to the pharmacy and you were denied the pharmacist should have sent a notification or (call) to your primary physician or endocrinologist the actual physician that prescribed the testim to you. . . .then they (drs office) should complete the prior authorization form which would indicate the dx for the need for the drug as well as your prior & current lab results proving that you need the medication and that your numbers are extremely low (YOUR NUMBERS HAVE TO BE LOWER THAN THE RANGE INDICATED ON YOUR LABS) and that on the medication the numbers are where they are supposed to be. . . .its up to the prescribing physiscians office to do the work for you not you. it maybe harder if you did not get prescribed by an endocrinologist which would be their specialty. . . .as seen in the eyes of insurance companies as well. . . .hey good luck hope this helps!
PS: Please if this is just to lift weight in the gym please dont add extra work to us in the medical field because it is ALOT of work and there are truly people out there that really need this medication. . . .
