...with my health insurance, despite the fact that polls supposedly indicate that the majority of Americans are happy with theirs. Yesterday we tried to fill a prescription for my son and were told by the pharmacist that we owed $942 because Humana required pre-authorization for this particular medication. So his physician will need to call the insurance company and ask for approval from a nurse who has never met my son and is unfamiliar with his medical condition. Now his physician has absolutely no financial incentive to prescribe one drug over another--she selects the one that she believes is best for him (in this case a slow release form of a medication that he had been taking twice daily). The insurance company, on the other hand, would prefer a cheaper drug to maximize their profit margin; his health and well being are really not their primary concerns.
