What's the word I'm looking for?

Remember my dispute with my health insurance company and how they wouldn't cover the generic form of my Lovenox even though it was 1/4 the price of name brand? (aka, $50 copay every 6 days vs $10 copay every 6 days) (United Healthcare said my plan only authorized 6 days supply at a time)

Well, the next time - after my latest 6 day supply ran out - that I went to fill my prescription for Lovenox, Target told me I had to call my insurance company.


But not really.

Because now somehow I got mail order meds.

Will they send only 6 days supply at a time? And only name brand?

Let's examine the evidence that was delivered at 9am today.

Answers to the above questions: No. And no.

I just paid $10 for 60 doses of GENERIC Lovenox. (aka 30 days supply). Somehow generic IS covered by my plan. And they CAN fill more than 6 days at a time. What a miracle!!!


Question: what's the word for what my insurance company has been doing to me this whole time? Fleecing? Tricking? Lying?

Something stronger?

Fucking thieves. There are no words strong enough to express my deep disgust with health insurance companies in the U.S.
