Just got off the phone with Aetna. YES, it is 1:59am, YES I have been speaking with them forEVER. In addition to the conversation about the Tracleer medication earlier today, which lasted approximately an hour.
Currently, there is some sort of major disconnect. I am *so* frustrated as to why the Sildenafil medication was filled last month without issue and cannot be done this month. Aetna blames Walgreens for charging too much (over $1,000) and Walgreens says Aetna won't take their override codes...BTW, pretty sure it was in fact the same cost last time it was filled. Bottom line: IT WORKED LAST MONTH---FIGURE IT OUT!!! I told the Aetna rep that we'd be checking into the ICU for nitric oxide in the morning if they wouldn't approve her sildenafil NOW since the Walgreens only compounds at night (and that is how her Rx is written). Finally it was approved for a 15 day supply and I'll be going through all this again in 15 days. Craziness.
I really needed an outlet for that rant and I'm sorry for being so negative.
