LIMBO….this is where my health insurance has placed me until the first business day of January 2010…. Yes LIMBO is where I must wait while they change to a new pharmaceuticals company. But I am due to have my horrible, burning, stinging injection (that should be shipped to me today) on Wednesday January 6th??? Well you are in LIMBO so you will need to have your Dr. call back on the first business day of January 2010 (which is Monday January 4th) with the script and we should be able to overnight the medication to you. Happy New Year to you too!!!
