I got this comment from Sandi, and could not believe it:
This patient takes the cake.
I normally do a fair amount of grumbling over how much stuff is paid for by Medicaid, but this time I had to be proud of what was not covered…
A lady came in with a prescription for Clomid. I did not ever in a million years expect she would be on Medicaid, so I had to look twice and still ask her if she had a new insurance card. Nope, she really is on Medicaid. Then she was just downright surprised that Medicaid would not pay to get her pregnant! Yeah, sure, why don’t you bring a few more into the world…on us. Not.
For those at home: Clomid = Makes women have babies. Just don’t stand downwind of a guy, you might become his baby-momma.
Sandi, you showed restraint unknown to those of us in retail. I personally would of called up the doctors office and asked them why they were writing a fertility drug to a patient that obviously could not take care of her self, but for some reason thought that bringing a child into the world would magically make her problems go away. What kind of dipshit retarded doctor would write for this? Oh, one of those “Everyone has a right to a family, blah blah blah”. Yeah, you pay for that fucking kid so we don’t have to.
I would of just told her it wasn’t covered, and if she asked if I could call the doctor to get it changed or get a prior auth, I would just say “If you cant afford this medication, how can you afford a child?”. Tough questions, tough love, only here on the angrypharmacist.
What i’m most surprised from this story, is that there really is an infertile welfare female out there. I thought that the cure all for infertility was to just go on welfare. In no time you’ll have one on each tit and another in the oven.
Yes, i’m going to hell. Straight to hell.
