I am disabled and on state funded insurance. the ins dropped my pain doc and now I can't get his scripts filled. I am on fentayal patches and Norco 10. I am out of meds, help, I don't want to get sick. he does not have another doc covering for him. am I being discriminated against through American disability Act?
I would contact the insurance company and ask them what they recommend you do. Explain to them that if they do not suggest a replacement doctor you are going to land in the hospital emergency room in severe pain and withdrawal from these medications. Tell them the ER visit is going to be far more expensive to them then providing an alternative. Technically they must provide a one month supply until another doctor is established, but they won't tell you that. Don't be afraid to visit the ER if necessary. Also, I would contact your Medicaid case worker and alert him/her of the situation.
