Thank you, everybody, for your good wishes and for sharing my joy! Kinda feels like we all win when one of us breaks thru the medical/insurance/govt system, doesn't it?
Im so happy for ya, and to be honest, if any others are in yer position and in CA, theres now a precedent for them to cite! Sorta takes the starch outta these insurance jerks for a change, huh?
This was the last hope, shy of starting a lawsuit, the CA State Insurance Commission. They actually farm it out to group of doctors. These docs are paid by the STATE, not the insurances or pharmaceutical companies. The top neuro on my case wrote an interesting statement at the end. It's about a page long. I'll type it up and post it when i get a chance....it's informative.
I'd really like to see that too, so dont think theres no interest of anyone seeing it.
But my HI bud Wayne brought up a truth. chris and i are not completely convinced until those boxes show up on my porch, or we get them at the pharmacy....haven't spoken with the insurance to find out how i'm to go about getting them. If i hafta get them from the insurance, it's 3 mths supply. (cool thing about that would be that, if it's the 3 month thing, then i'll have the sucker supply to get me thru December and the holidays.) Although we are thrilled the state has come thru, the history of this insurance company makes us sure that they will pull some other trick. I'm more than willing to get the suckers thru them, and to go with the generic, which i've had and there seems to be zero difference.
Wouldnt that take the "binding" outta the whole "binding arbitration" thing?
Im willing to bet they believed that they had a sure thing or they never woulda agreed to it in the first place, but still, ya throw the dice, and ya dont getta cry 'foul' if ya dont like the results! Not in "BINDING arbitration"!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thats why they call it BINDING!
The heat makes my head pain much, much worse. We usually are in the 90's thru Sept and upper 80's thru October. This year we've had a cool stretch already. That has been a major blessing.
Im not a headache person, but I still dont handle heat well. This has been a great mild weather stretch for us, hasnt it? I honestly dont remember a summer this cool or a fall that has started to kick in so 'on time' for this part of the state. The heat makes me really nauseated.
However....i don't trust stuff going too right. Something always comes along when the cards are coming up in our favor. There's a shoe due to drop...
I know yer not gonna really celebrate till those suckers are in yer hot lil hands, but try to like it a little. Youve managed quite a feat.
But in the meantime, YEA!!!!!
There ya go! Keep us posted. You deserve this.
