HMO: prescription management
By David Jancauskas


December 08, 2008

Dear Editor

I am truly saddened by the deplorable service of the "big box" prescription service and their homage to something called Merck-Medco.

Apparently if this faceless giant doesn't think you need the medicine, you don't get it. It doesn't matter what your doctor or what your insurance company says. Merck-Medco tells them when you when you get your prescription and when you don't. I don't know what the buy in is with the "big box" or Blue Cross but you you can be sure that if Merck-Medco says no, your premiums have been wasted and you will not get your medicine. I would be interested in seeing if any of your other readers have wasted years of insurance premiums, and then been denied vital prescriptions.
