My family doctor required a clinic visit to get a new prescription for a renewal of a prescription that had expired after 3 years. I have a seasonal allergy to birch pollen and have found that the meds prescribed by an allergy specialist allow me to function during the season. I start Singulair and fluticasone propionate prior to the start of the season and haven’t had my lungs shut down since starting this regime. As this visit was coded preventive, Aetna will not pay.
Should we have not gone to the doctor, but waited to become incapacitated instead?
I guess Aetna will pay for an emergency room visit but not “preventative” care. This is ridiculous. Isn’t it also illegal under the Affordable Care Act?
I am forwarding your questions/concerns to Rod McCoy, the chair of our medical concerns committee.
