Hi there I'm just checking to see what was your luck with getting out of Kaiser and changing to a new insurance being on the pain medications . I too am in the same boat they are decreasing my meds and they are the only things that help me function -the new meds they gave me for withdrawal have made me worse and bedbound -at least before I can get up and do a few things and have some sort of life.I have osteoarthritis ,DJD , pyriformis syndrome herniated disc scoliosis and a few more. Now I am treated like a drug addict and urine tested at appointments!
Kaiser has an Opiod Guidelne of 120 mg but I don't believe it's every insurance plan that is doing this and that it is part of an FDA regulation. Any info you have would be greatly appreciated. Thank You
I am not a drug seeker . I take this medication to function and have a somewhat normal life, not be bedbound. I have never abused my drugs ,never even used my prescribed amount and never ran out before I should have. I believe this is causing undue pain and stress to true chronic pain patients who have to come in for more appointmentand , see more specialists such a psychology and physical therapy and biofeedback so they could bill for more money ? I don't know I'm not sure but all it's doing is putting more stress, work and pain for these patients who are not responsible for the drug seekers out on the street and the illegal part of the opioid industry.
Reason of review: Poor customer service.
