I recently wrote a specialist about a new medical device approved by the FDA and I enclosed some webpages on it and asked for a prescription vi SASE if he though it might be worthwhile. He enclosed a post-it note that said we were on the same page and it can't hurt. I saw him last about a month ago.
I saw my PCP on a Tuesday and did not have the list of medications that I needed a new prescription for ready. I dropped that list which contained about 5 controlled substances and 10 normal prescriptions.
In stead of the SASE, I asked his office to call me when I could pick it up.
I was called on a Monday morning and started dropping off the scripts Monday afternoon. So far, ~$3100 for medications. Reimbursement should happen eventually. The ball is rolling to get retroactive drug coverage.
This method ELIMINATES the mail, so you should be happy.
