Re: [IP] Another Insurance question???



I am a HMO member in Florida, and I can only get my supplies through the
HMO's mail order pharmacys.  They will not cover them if I order them from
MM.  It's a total pain in the a**.  They also keep switching mail order
pharmacys on me, so every 3 months when I call them to get my supplies, they
say, oh, we no longer deal with your HMO, you will need to call them.  It's
a big runnaround and a huge hassle.  Good Luck!
