My Insurance Thinks I Shoot Up

Or that's the conclusion I've come up with. They are refusing to fill my NEW prescription for my insulin needles. My current ones only hold 30 units and I am up to 55 units before bed. Which requires me to use 2 needles just for that one dose. I have to use 4 needles in the morning! So, my doctor called me in a larger syringe, so I'm not running through needles like a heroin addict.

Oops. Apparently, that's code for actually being a heroin addict. Awesome.

HOW? What the eff kind of insurance company denies a prescription for needles? (Do you actually need the prescription, btw? I live in Montana, and while you CAN get a prescription so your insurance will cover them, you can buy them over the counter anyhow.)

From what I understand, in North Carolina, a prescription is required. Apparently in hopes that it will curb drug use?

It's OK. I'll just use the same needles over and over and hope I don't die from tetanus or something. LoL
