Title: Serious CH Topic...Need Your Help
Post by Donna_D. on Dec 16th, 2004, 1:02am
I also have this posted in the General Section

I am trying to put together some statistics on Insurance Carriers, Meds, and how much they allow per month

What I need from as many of you as possible is to either list here or PM me the following information

What state do you live in:  
(Altered is NOT and acceptable answer, BTW )


Do you have health insurance?


Who is your current insurance Carrier:



What CH meds do you take:


How many are you "allowed" per month:


Have you ever been able to get your insurance carrier to allow more?  If so, how?


I am trying to get some stats together that will help ALL of us...Please help

Just a little curious. How  are you going to use those stats to help anyone? Other than confirming that most insurance companies are screwing everyone.

I am attempting to put together letters that can be sent to the insurance carriers to appeal the number of abortives, etc. a CH'er is limited to each month.

Also to get some states Medicare/Medicaid programs to pay for 02 for CH.

I will compile all information and present everyone with a finished copy when I am done.
