My mother just left the hospital last week after being diagnosed with a UTI and had great care. The hospital now has her in a rehab facility which I have extended for 1 more week and then she is coming home. She is 88, has dementia/Alzheimer, COPD, Parkinson, and at this point is confined to a bed unless she has a lift take her form the bed to a Geri chair. I care for her at home and have been her caregiver for 5 years and doing it 24/7; but was told by the doctor that if she cannot come to the office they can no longer authorize future prescriptions and this is her primary physician. To make matters worse, she is now going to be required to get all prescriptions via mail order by July 1 or she will be required to pay full price for her medications. This cannot happen as these are required to keep her alive. What options do I have here as I am at my wits end? She has good medical insurance with Medicare and Blue Cross; but if the doctors are not going to budge, what do I do? We are located in Ulster County in New York. I am sorry about the urgent tone of this but I adore this woman like no one else in this universe and the amount of tears this past couple of weeks would fill all the oceans.
