You read that correctly. After a long run on the road I returned home only to be notified by my insurance company that my doctor’s and surgeon’s request for a particular anesthesia medication had been “denied” for an upcoming surgery that is required because of my past history of drug addiction. The reason for this request is that this particular medication is non-narcotic and not opiate based which I was addicted to. Mind you I have been prescribed this medication three times before with absolutely no side effects. Instead of “jumping the gun” I called my insurance company to get an explanation so I don’t end up again in a booking photo.
