Tamsulosin - I am talking Rapaflo 8mg one a day after breakfast and now my health insurance is?
Added 30 Mar 2012:
I am taking now Rapaflo 8mg a day after breakfast and my Health Insurance is changing it to Tamsulosin 0.4mg because it is much cheaper? or what? My previous Insurance did not say anything like this and now we have to follow what the Insurance telling us and not the Doctors? Are we going on the right place medically or going worst.
I took tamsulosin for BPH for 3-4 years. Recently it has stopped working. Hence my urologist switched me to Rapaflo since 3 weeks. It is showing far better results than Tamsulosin.
But my insurance [Aetna Better Health NJ FamilyCareA] who paid all these years for Tamsulosin, is trying to refuse paying for Rapaflo.
Now my urologist Dr. David Chang, Woodlands Park, NJ, [who is very cooperative, but his office staff isn't] has to get it 'prior-authorized'.
Until that time-wasting drama of 'prior authorization' imposed by the insurance companies is over, I am on the verge of running out of the samples of Rapaflo given by the urologist.
In short, Rapaflo works when Tamsulosin stops working for BPH [for me].
