Has your medication been switched by your insurance company or pharmacy? We want to hear your story!
In many cases, patients who have a medication that works for them are surprised to find that the medication has suddently been switched by their insurance company or pharmacy. This is often done without consent from the patient or the physician who prescribed the medication. Insurance companies looking for ways to reduce costs may decide not to pay for certain medications. Sometimes they make these changes to their formularies mid-year, leaving patients with little recourse. This can be a problem for people with chronic conditions like epilepsy who have found a medication that works for them. This is called non-medical switching. We would like to know more about how often this occurs in Michigan, and how this affects people's lives.
