This is a long story that I will try to keep brief.Never had a problem getting perscriptions untill an attack started this summer after a three year lapse.Suddenly I found everything I used in the past and some new stuff I wanted to try to be restricted to very small amounts.Even my Oxygen was only being covered by about 50%.After many hours of negotions,by myself and my Pharmisist,with the insurance company that was getting us no where.I got fed up and asked to talk the person in that organzation that thought they knew more about my condition than my own doctor and could supercede his orders.I got the Vice President of bullshit or something like that and told him that my condition delt with a uncommonly painfull headache with proven methods of treatment that I was being denied.If something was not done soon I was going to sue them.In the end I got most of what I asked for but still restricted compared to three years ago and have to pay for part of my oxygen.I am considering taking them to court anyway.Since then they have tried to cancel my coverage but legally can't.
