Re: GlaxoSmithKline Recalls Two Lots of Ventolin HFA Albuterol Sulfate Inhalers

I had to have my sister send me money to get the Ventolin inhaler that I need. I told my doctor off since he wouldn't do the appeal and said that I could pay for it! I'm getting a new doctor! My doctor I had for 14yrs. Would have done the appeal, but she stopped practicing to teach. So this guy took over and he's lazy and horrible and doesn't do anything! I have one refill left and will have to pay for it, unless the new doctor does the prior authorazation and does it right. On Apr 5, 2017...

Hi @Carrottop50 , sorry to hear that your medicine is no longer covered and that the doctor is unwilling to help with an appeal. We have a couple of resources that might you: What to Do If You Can't Afford Your Asthma Medicines Health Insurance 101 for People With Asthma and Allergies (Video and Resources) I'd also like to invite you to our asthma forums where you can connect with others for support.

I got a new doctor and he did the prior authorization correctly and It was still denied. They want to know why I can't use it.I left a message for my doctor to do the appeal and tell them it doesn't work for me.I'm still using the inhaler that my sister sent me the money for. I still have to use my inhaler in hot weather here in Az. It's 115 and tomorrow 117 and we've had dangerously hot weather. We already broke the record of 120 from 23 yrs.ago. I stayed in for 2 weeks because dangerous...

@Carrottop50 That's really frustrating. I've run into issues where the insurance still denied coverage on a med even after the doc submitted the proper documentation. I'm currently fighting to get a nose spray covered. The one I want (had samples) works better than the others I've tried. Have you contacted the insurance company to ask if there is further documentation they need? What is the appeals process? Is there a patient advocate you can speak with? Has the doc considered trying the...

I want Beconase or Qnasl for my nose. I used Beconase CFC on and off from about 1975-2005 and it was always miracle. They discontinued it! Now they exclude it. It's a new trend I was reading that started about a year ago. You have to appeal for medical necessity, anyone done this successfully for INS (inhaled nasal steroids?) There is a lot of research saying untreated allergic rhinitis increases chance of hospital visit for asthma significantly.
