Seems like they have a built-in conflict of interest.

indeed. fixed after no small amount of work on our part over a period of two days -had to go to hospital to get it yesterday and today, home injection stuff should arrive tomorrow. should. which is good because the doc wasn't really happy about delaying an extra week. this is kind of vital

it arrived in time ....right in the few minutes I was home from the all day water polo tourney grabbing some stuff between games for hungry/thirsty players.... and apparently it needed to be refrigerated immediately upon receipt, so we got lucky by about 6 hours

....woulda been ok really, probably, b/c it came in a free Styrofoam coolbox and would prob have lasted, but a little warning wouldn't have hurt. -We knew no-one was expected to be in,-beest requested no signature required, but we could have fixed something up

Fuckery.

That's exactly the word for it.

Fuckery.

I think insurance executives denying people life-saving medication should have to do so in person.

I'm sure they can afford that free cooler without denting their bottom line.
