I took my son to the doctor the other day for flu like symptoms. She prescribed cipro for him and told us to keep him home over the weekend. Well, when I went to the pharmacy to have this filled I was told that our insurance company requires that they "approve" cipro and since it was late Friday it would be impossible to get it approved. We ended up calling the Doc and getting the prescription changed. This really pee'd me off!!!! Who the heck do these insurance companies think they are?????? If a DOCTOR prescribes cipro....who are they to say that they have to APPROVE this prescription since they have not seen the patient, nor do they know what it is being given for??? HOW DARE THEY???? The insurance company is Coventry and they ARE going to get a call from me!!!
Anyone else run into this??
