A bill passed the Texas State Legislature that is supposed to address the insurance issue. The good news, is that changes won’t come in effect until January 1. We are supposed to get free generic prescriptions – everything is currently generic except insulin.
Back in April, when I was at the Shreveport dog shows, I received a letter telling me that my new diabetes doctor was going out of business the Friday before my next appointment. They said in the meantime see your primary care physician.
Shortly after that appointment was scheduled I received an email that they were opening a new office on June 1. I haven’t heard anything since.
Went through my meds last week, packaging them using PillSuite, and discovered not only was out almost out of my cholesterol medication but that there were no refills. Makes sense, we were supposed to relook all that at the appointment. So I did what they said and made an appointment with my primary care physician.
Saw him yesterday. I went off of statin drugs last year due to statin pain – may still have some vestiges of that – but my labs have slowly been drifting up. So he added generic Crestor, lowest dose. He also said that he was cool with writing scripts for supplies, but couldn’t help with pump dosages. I hope he asked his office assistant if she was cool with it, because he is often cool with something, but she isn’t and it never gets to him.
All good for the next three months.
He did tell me that if Diabetes Center of America didn’t reopen, that there were was an endochronolist office opening soon in their building.
