Those cocksuckers at Caremark did this. Well, they didn't come to our house or the store or hospital in Cincy or wherever and infect Ike with RSV, but they might as well have.
They denied all our appeals for Synagis. They disputed letters from our pediatrician. Sent ME a nasty letter saying Ike would not qualify.
Because of his age.
The medicine is dispensed based on weight. Ike is THE FUCKING SIZE OF A 16 MONTH OLD. He has chronic lung issues. The AAP says Synagis is indicated for premature babies and other babies AT THE DOCTOR'S DISCRETION. But Caremark denied us anyway. They drew it out for so long, we don't even have time to fight with Medicaid about whether or not THEY will approve it.
I hate Caremark with the same fiery hot anger that I saw in Ike's doctor's eyes when he said the RSV test was positive.
Thank-you, cocksockers, for not approving a medication that could have prevented this. Now my baby has RSV – a respiratory virus that can be fatal or cause long-term permanent damage in children like him.
The only reason we aren't in the hospital is because we have oxygen, equipment and access to nursing at home. Which doesn't mean he won't be hospitalized, it just means he isn't right now.
So, fuck you, Caremark. I hope you enjoy paying for all of the medications and therapies we'll need that we wouldn't have needed otherwise. Because now, instead of saving the money you thought you did by denying us the Synagis, you've cost yourselves a shitload more.
And also, the whole pediatrician's office is so angry I think they might grab some pitchforks and torches and track you fuckers down.
