Pizza vs. Drugs

I deleted 15 voicemail messages from my cell phone regarding getting my medicine. What’s more, it had already taken me an insane number of calls, for an insane number of hours to get prior authorization for a drug that I’ve actually taken before. You might think things would be easier or have a quicker turnaround time, but setting up a new prescription, with a new doctor, a new insurance plan and new pharmacy was less than simple and took over a month. In a time when we can see when I can track my Domino’s pizza from order to delivery, how come I can’t do the same with my medicine?
