Inland Empire Health Plan — prescription coverage
This is in regards to my friend whom was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer along with other medical problems. Needless to say he is dieing a slow painful death.He recently had to change his medical over to a health plan which he is low income so he only had a couple choices, he chose iehp. He was prescribed boost nutritional supplemental drink by his doctor as he cannot hold down food. His regular medical covered the boost, but as of oct. 2011 since his change to iehp they will not cover it. THE MAN IS DIEING what is wrong with this health ins. plan. He's not asking for much just the nutrients he's not getting normally to help him fight to stay alive. He barely has the fight left in him as it is. I have watched him since they denied him in oct. 2011 slowly deteriorate from not having the supplements he needs and also giving up on his fight to live. He has been battling to get this approval for the boost and getting no where with them. How can this company claim to be so great when they are doing nothing but make a man suffer more than he already is? Imagine not eating for 2 months. Now he, s got to go through the appeal process he might be dead before he even gets to it. they should be ashamed of themselves.
