HI Marie- Reed certainly has aggravation w/ his Medicare Rx. I guess I am lucky w/ mine. I get all generics with no co-pay thru the mail-order pharmacy assoc. with my Medicare Advantage plan with Humana. I get insulin samples from my PCP. And I buy syringes from Wal-mart. ( They are 12.58/box of 100) Just as good as B-D. We have been getting a herd of deer each nite for the past week coming to eat the corn Jim puts out. We see their hoof prints and droppings each morning. How are you doing ? My #'s are still jumping around. This morning I was 48. Hope your day is sunny and warm, here it will be 65. Today is my daughter's b-day, she is 40. I can't believe it.Time Just flies by !!!
Good Morning,Marie. It is a TOPS morning. I won the fight. It took time and a fighting mood. My BG 102 even with the stress. A nice morning here. Russ slept right through the night no coughing. PTL. I find this funny new member a whole page of stuff where they have commented on this and that then I welcome then. How was your reading this morning? I hope in a good range. Let a SMILE BE YOUR UMBRELLA although some days it is difficult. My best to Ed. Take good care. I care. HUGS,Reed
The trick with Ladders is find things there (that's where I found my job) but don't use the site to apply. Instead go to the actual company site -- and if you can find a way to get your resume carried in by someone even better. I am now going to contemplate the concept of "cheese experience." I am quite fond of cheese -- does that make me experienced?
Next August... I did a search and it looks like it's between August 5th and 14th. I'll put it on my calendar, but could you please do me a favor and send me a reminder as the date gets closer? I don't always trust my memory, and can't always read my handwriting. (Yes, I use an old fashioned calendar held to the fridge with a magnet).
Since my Tu profile is public (not restricted to "friends"), I'm always a bit cautious to post too many pictures of the kids. The next generation is going to grow up haunted by all the pics of them floating around in cyberspace. But sometimes I can be coerced! :)
Heard from Reed that you guys have been having fun with pharmceutical insurance plans too -- just what you needed right? I have a problem every single time I have to submit a new script for insulin. Huge battles. I hope there is some movement for Ed soon.
BENICAR FOR HYPERTENSION NOT APPROVED IT HAS NO GENERIC HE IS GIVING ME SOMETHING BETTER AND INSURANCE APPROVED.
I AM MAKING SOME PROGRESS. ISN'T IT TERRIBLE HOW YOU HAVE TO FIGHT?
Just did the Agenda for TOPS Tomorrow. Rap Session..CRAVINGS and HOW TO GET BACK IN THE SWING OF THINGS LOSING WEIGHT.
We have had 3 terrible weeks.
A big hello to Ed. Gorgeous here.
The church is so good to us we use 4 rooms. They have a Food Pantry. To show our appreciation for only charging us $50 a month...the first meeting of every month every member brings food for their food pantry.
Hi Marie Did the laundry got a haircut the orthopedic doctor has re-authorized my pill. MY PCP I am waiting for his call. Eye drops ok but go ny date do not spill any. Getting there but it has been an all day affair. I have not messaged anyoneas I was too busy. Hugs,Reed
No they were just so so Russ cannot eat Chinese food. I am still fighting. The eye drops they will cover I just went too soon better not spill any. Crazy. Russ and Tom at the doctors I hope they do not come back woth bad news. I am not in a good mood so not messaging anyone until I quiet down. Npw I need to find out will a new prescription be authorization enough or does the doctor's office have to call the phramacy? In between duels I am doing the laundry. Hugs,Reed
Good Morning,Marie. I am late. I have been fighting with the insurance company. I have Medicare. My Gap used to be Blue Cross/Blue Shield through the town of Arlington. Ignoring the 4 unions they put us in the state plan. My Gap now is UNICARE. They refused 5 of my refills. I must get a Generic. Some of my pills do not have a Generic. I have to go to PCP Endo Eye doctor ortho and they MUST authorize me to take the name brand. This is uncalled for. Insulin does not have Generics. I guess I am stuck. I will have to do it.
I have 5 egg rolls...can I freeze them? He also brought chicken lollipops and Beef and Brocoli with other veggies. I think that might spike me. I finally got my BG to 106. Russ sees doctor at 12 Tom will go with him. He is still coughing. 42 degrees this morning. I had to put on the heat. I hope Ed is doing OK> These are crazy days. I never heard of all I have to go through. I told the phramacist I would pay for the eye drops. He said it would be over $100. What is going on with you today? I hope youare doing ok. Sorry I am in such a fighting mood. HUGS,Reed
Hi Marie. What a late morning. I had called the pharmacy with 7 refills. When I got there I got 2. My NEW insurance company would no refills unless I go back to the doctor and get new scripts. Brand name refills my co-pay will be $50. I will ask my doctor to give me Generic. I did get Lantus and Novolog Medicare pays for most ot that so my Coo-pay $25. The town where I worked did no favors for the retirees with this plan. HUGS,REED
