I'd love any advice with this...
Since FD started working full-time, we'll lose our state-funded supplemental insurance. Froggy has medical insurance through Blue Cross, but her policy (that I purchased before knowing she had CF) does not cover brand-name drugs. As you all know, basically ALL CF medications are brand-name. And either there isn't a generic, or the generic is so awful, CF docs won't even write prescriptions for them.
Has anyone been through this? Where do we begin? Our social worker at the hospital gave me a number to call a service that works with women and children. I left a message with them, but would like to get the word out that we need some advice.
I called Blue Cross and we can apply for a different policy, but the rep. basically said there is "no way" they would approve a new policy. Lovely. Okay world, send me the answer!
