Leaving Treadmarkz Across the Universe

When the Medically Necessary is Deemed Unnecessary, You Get the Feeling You’re on a Sinking Ship

This ought to raise the ire of apologists for both sides of the political scene, but I don’t really intend it as such. Though I am sure it will become a big issue during this election season, I think this is the result of a problem that has been stewing over the course of the last three administrations, if not longer. The problem? Intermittent Catheters have been deemed not to be “medically necessary” and therefore not covered by UCare. Many people on Medical Assistance have recently been moved over to UCare or a similar program.

I have to be very blunt, I fail to see how something so basic as emptying the bladder has been deemed not necessary. Its kind of like how insulin is covered for diabetics but the syringes necessary to inject it are not covered.
Has anybody faced either of these problems or anything similar? What have you done to solve it?

  1. Turns out it was just a mistake in coding. Although UCare does not cover my current brand, the pharmacy can just get the new brand any everything will be fine.
