6 month Supply of Medicine
Posted date : Nov 6, 2017.
Dear Bird Talk,
I am a member of the PSHCP and encountered the same problem as Wayne Hays, Barry’s Bay ON, regarding acquiring a six-month supply of medicine versus three months.
Solution ‒ I called my medical benefits provider and explained my needs. I also asked them how they expected me to acquire sufficient medicine to see me through a six-month stay in the U.S., as shipping drugs cross-border was illegal?
There was no argument and the solution was simple.
Call ahead (they suggested a 30-day lead before departure) and they would remove the computer stop, thus allowing my pharmacist to fill my doctor’s subscription authorizing a six-month supply.
Hope this helps others!
Another excellent solution to the “drug” problem. This is very common – because the computer says so…we can’t do that. Tom found someone to “fix” the computer.
