Sunday House Call, #905, December 10, 2023: Your Friendly Neighbourhood Insurance Company Beancounter

Insurance company personnel determine whether your prescription, that has overwhelming evidence to be prescribed for your medical condition, is acceptable by acting as judge, jury, and executioner. My patients have suffered because of their consistent refusal to cover the medications that will provide dramatic improvements in their quality of life and health. Need Ozempic? Good luck with that. They will force you to use a less effective medication that will cost more in time and money.

Thought of drinking lettuce water to improve sleep? Think again.

New research suggesting the Ozempic can reduce kidney damage for people who have type 2 diabetes.

Your Calls and Comments:

  • Treatments for possible sciatica. It may not be and we discuss other avenues of investigation
  • Viral respiratory infection management
  • Using Saxenda instead of Ozempic.
