    The "how" part is simple. Managed care and the money it uses to grease the palms of law makers.

    BlueCross has recently cutoff service thur local pharm.'s and now will only pay if Rx's are filled at Eckerd Pharm's in Western NY. I don't know about the rest of you but most of my Pt's are home bound, and Eckerd has no delivery service, This just isn't Right how can they do this.

    Consider lodging a complaint with your state level insurance commissioners office (or even more powerful, getting a client to--difficult but more impressive). Try getting your local State Nurses Association interested in this issue, too. I've called the insurace commissioner a couple times in our state and it's not a fast fix, but if consumers follow through, our insurance commissioner listens.
