I'm just a little sad because I thought, "Great"!!!! I have Medicare now. I've waited two years without insurance and thought it would be wonderful to get to see a doctor and a medication that would help. Well, wrong answer. Humira is so expensive and after you reach $2500, you have to pay 100% for your medication, so I won't be able to afford Humira or any other biologic. Now, I'm back to square one. They only want to give you prednisone. Prednisone makes me very miserable. The side effects are too much for me. I guess I'll just have these miserable sores for the rest of my life.
I'm so angry at my husbands new employer. They told him he would have medical insurance after 90 days when he gave up his other job. Well, they put a clause in there that they didn't cover the department he works in and they didn't tell him that part of it. So, they gave us the paperwork and then the insurance company informed us that we couldn't be covered and dropped us after two weeks. Well, in that time frame, we were past the 63 days and I have pre-existing conditions, so we couldn't find anyone who would cover me. I'm just so upset.
Can't win for losing......
