On Medicare and SSDI

On Medicare and SSDI

You might be on Medicare and SSDI if you’ve got a daily Rx filled at the local pharmacy but you can’t pick it up yet because you’re waiting on a deposit from SSDI.

But also the clock’s ticking before the pharmacy gives up on you and re-shelves the Rx and it’s a “controlled substance” so refills are generally a pain in the ass for an extra fuck you. I’m so tired of needing money and meds all the dang time.

Dan’s meds are fully covered by Medicaid, but they made him go a whole year without the medicine his doctor prescribed. It caused his psoriatic arthritis to progress while Molina essentially put him on a different drug he and his doctor knew wouldn’t work to “prove” it wouldn’t work. Because money I guess. And I’m in a cranky mood today. Medicaid’s not better, it’s just a different kind of hell.

And before anyone gets all “see the government shouldn’t be involved” on me, his Medicaid Rx coverage and my Medicare part D are managed by private insurance companies. The government just gives them the money I gave the government. Don’t pick a fight with me. Tyvm.

That’s all I got. Welcome to #Crankfest2022, brought to to you by being on Medicare and SSDI.
