Case of the Week: 4/21/06

County: Marion
Age: 71

Our client called us after she learned that her plan provider for Medicare Part D would not cover one of her prescriptions. Although the provided wanted to switch to a generic drug, her doctor advised her that this would be detrimental to her health. I explained that she and her doctor can submit a request for an exception since the doctor does not feel she can switch. If the plan refuses then she can appeal. The client had her doctor send a request for an exception and the plan decided to cover her prescription.
