    New Medi-Cal Denial

    I just got a notice from Shield Healthcare that MediCal "has recently made significant changes to its ostomy product formulary" and the ostomy supplies I've been getting from them - pouches and belts - will not be covered after May 31, 2008.

    As their offices are closed now I can't call for clarification but don't see how Medi-Cal can have made a decision that will have me laying out about a hundred and fifty bucks a month.

    Has anyone received a simular notification from their healthcare provider re. ostomy supplies?

    It just means that they have found some piece of junk they will force you to use and that they will pay for, or else you will have to pay for the kind you like and need yourself. Cynic that I am, I'm sure someones brother-in-law is benefitting from all the new business that people are going to be forced into sending his way.

      Any way to appeal the decision?

      I've read Arnie is making budget cuts because they're so much in the red. And the people who are on the receiving end of the "cuts" are those who can least afford it...never fails.

        I'll have to wait but if this is Shield reacting to Medi-Cal's re-formulary on ostomy supplies I don't see how I can appeal.

        Arnie? Oh, never mind; that jackass gov of ours in Cali.

          Sounds like I'm going to have t give Shield a call and make sure everything is going the way it's supposed to for my supplies.

            Let us know how that works out, OK?
