Hi Bob,
Don't take "No" for an answer from BC/BS. I've had problems like that with my insurance company, and my pdoc has contacted them by phone and in writing, explaining why it is necessary for me to take the medications they don't want to cover. So far, my doctor's efforts have paid off, although it took a lot of persistence. Since you haven't taken Strattera yet, you might have to try it first without reimbursement. Then, if you respond well to it, your doctor should contact your insurance company and explain that you've responded well to this medication and you need it, etc. Are you absolutely certain BC/BS doesn't cover it? It's so new; perhaps it's just not listed in the formulary yet.
