Durable medical equip provider took cpap modem & gave me card. Doc ordered modem. Don't know if I can fight b/c I don't know if I paid for modem. : (?

Modem gives data over internet directly and card, you bring to your dme or doctor personally. Same thing! Cost may be a factor why dme took it back! Or maybe it was not working.

Why's finding a decent doctor impossible, insurance encourage establishing communication with your provider only to find there's no time for questions?

Insurance: There are thousands of excellent caring doctors out there. Sorry you haven't had the past experience of finding them. Regarding insurance companies, they are a business and in my opinion, their top priority is maximum service for least cost. Unfortunately, with reduced insurance coverage payments to doctors, it comes with a price. A good doctor should give you the time you need regardless. ...Read more

I want to know. How. Doctors. View. Insurance. Providers. Are there carrier s. That. Ypu don't want to deal with.

Insurance companies: I can only speak for myself. I love the insurance co's that pay reasonable and 'real world' ucr fees, pay within 2-3 weeks, & don't hassle us with unnecessary time consuming requests. That's a win-win for everyone. I hate the ins. Co's that have ridiculous fees, 'lose' claims, pay 3 months later and disallow needed & appropriate treatment. Both types exist. Each dentist makes his\her own choices. ...Read more

If: If add is the only problem and you have been stable on the same medication on the same dosage for a while, then usually this can be followed by a general or family practice physician. However, there are some general and family physicians who do not prescribe psychotropic medications. So, as you are looking for your new doctor, inquire as to whether he or she is willing to prescribe simple (not requiring multiple psychiatric medications) psychiatric medications. Good luck. ...Read more
