Irritation #2

My ongoing regular posts regarding the daily aggravations and irritations of being a PCP.

Remember the Prior Authorization that I requested for my patient who had been on multiple anti-arrhythmics and saw a cardiologist who, after trying other medications, put her back on just digoxin and said to keep her on that? — Irritation #1– Well, Cigna decided, because apparently they know more about cardiology than the cardiologists and specifically they understand treatment of the individual better than a cardiologist who evaluated her, that she does not need the digoxin and refused the prior authorization.

REALLY? REALLY?  Now my staff and I have to try to get her an expedited appeal.

I am open-mouthed amazed.
