iheartcats Posted June 5, 2009 Report Share Posted June 5, 2009 Hello everyone,The last month I've spent moving across country, dealing with some intense family stuff, and trying to unpack, settle, etc. Somehow for the month of the move, I kept up. But I am paying for it this week. I'm so tired/fatigued and everything just feels 'heavy' (arms/legs) but I'm forcing myself to work on unpacking and things when I can.I have a few 'pressing' questions that are starting to worry me...so any advice you can share will be helpful.---We are now on an HMO plan The cost of meds + copays + deductibles in the PPO were very, very high. The doctor I've been recommended is on the plan, so that's a plus. Here are my outstanding questions...A. Will the HMO be likely to question my use of medicine (Mestinon and Midodrine, specifically) as it is not normally prescribed and Midodrine and my BB even somewhat contradict themselves. I have to use all Generic (no real choice)...but my former doctor said generic Midodrine may just vary a bit in strength and not to worry too much about it. B. How hard is it to see a specialist if needed? I used to self-refer when needed on the PPO (not often, but I need to see a local POTS specialist a couple times a year, at least. Maybe another specialist or two for other things).C. I have an IUD. The plan doesn't cover IUD unless Oral Contraceptives are not medically viable. In my case, my prior doctor said they are not. What do I have to do to prove this (like when I need a new one, when I need it checked, etc). Thanks so much for any advice on HMOs. I appreciate it!
