In Topic: Prior Authorization For Accutane?

01 August 2014 - 03:46 PM

Yup, they said that. They are just trying to save the $3,000 it will cost. It get on my nerves, because I contribute a lot of money to healthcare, and I never use it. The first time I need something, I get denied. My derm and the pharmacy says they will appeal again, but I lost all hope. I guess I'll have to wait until I have $3,000 to throw away.

In Topic: Prior Authorization For Accutane?

It is through an employer, I'm in a good union, but I don't know if it's pop or HMO, I'd have to find out. It took 2 days to get my prior authorization denied, now it's on a 2nd appeal. They said they don't give accutane to people over 25, because they don't get acne. I think prior authorization is just an obstacle they throw up to save them billions of dollars, they are crooks. I'm so pissed off that nothing is working, and my derm wants me on it, but these idiots who don't even know me are saying I don't need it.  I don't know why I have to pay $10/hr into this system, and is can't use it when I need it.

Have you tried accutane? Sometimes it is the only thing that will help.

Yes, you are doing it correctly, however the acne.org back regimen just doesn't work that great if at all. I tried it for 6 months and the only thing I got was bleached t shirts. Also wearing AHA in hot or humid weather feels like crap. I guess it also depends on your type of acne whether it works or not. Dan even says that after he took accutane his bacne never came back, so how the hell did he even come up with it?

I am on 100 mg of oral antibiotics twice daily too. I also use panoxyl 10 bar. I had pretty bad bacne, like 10-20 cysts at any given time. It has been approximately 4 months, and I'm about 80% clear, so it takes a long freakin time.
