Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak places a restriction on two anti-malaria drugs


 

This is exactly what happens to the democrats once they get a taste for executive orders that control you and me. If anyone still wonders about the importance of the 2nd amendment, this will give you plenty of ammo. Shelter in place orders? A lesson for us not to be forgotten.

Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak has restricted the prescription of two malaria medications that President Trump named as potential remedies for coronavirus, after a man died and his wife was hospitalized for using a fish tank cleaning additive with a similar name as a substitute.

Sisolak, a Democrat, issued an executive order Tuesday prohibiting prescriptions of chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine for coronavirus patients after the president mentioned the two drugs during a press briefing.

“While the two drugs have necessary medical purposes, there is no conclusive evidence at this time among COVID-19 experts or Nevada’s own medical health advisory team that the drugs provide treatment for COVID-19 patients,” Sisolak said in a statement.

In Arizona, one man died and his wife landed in critical condition after the pair reportedly drank fish tank cleaner ingredient chloroquine phosphate, allegedly believing that they were ingesting the same anti-malarial medication currently being touted by officials as a possible COVID-19 treatment. There are major differences between the anti-malaria drug and the liquid the couple in Arizona allegedly ingested.

No real help for being stupid. Other than that, all is well in the swamp.

    I switched drug plans the first of this year. Plugged in my prescriptions and was given a list of plans and what my copays would be. Needless to say, I rejected plans which would not cover one or more of my meds.

    So, on March 23rd, I get a call telling me one of my prescriptions is not covered. Weird, they’ve paid it for three months. I call and ask why not and get a response that uses English words but is not English. Said, “Look, I selected this plan because you said you would cover my meds at a given copay.”

    They said that they had not published those prices, Medicare did. Medicare published prices that individual insurance carriers would charge? “Well,” they said, “maybe not, but…” They said I need to get my doctor to fill out some forms. Right, like he needs to spend time doing that right now. Are they aware there’s a pandemic?

    Meanwhile I had the doctor send in a refill on another drug. I’m not running out yet, but I had no refills left. Pharmacy called to say insurance would not authorize because it was too soon. I said no problem, I’ll call when I need the refill. Two days later pharmacy refilled the prescription because the insurance authorized it. I how have enough of that medication to choke a horse.

    Pandemic or not, this medical system is fouled up beyond redemption. If the viruses don’t kill us the freaking drug companies and insurance companies will. And I am very proud of the language that, as a Navy veteran, I have used here.

      Oh man, doctors’ offices, refill requests, and insurances. I deal with them all day every day.

      The pt (not you) always blames the pharmacy but it’s usually the fault of the doctor’s office or the insurance company.

      Insurance companies are waiving early fill limitations because of the corona virus.

      I’m sorry you are having issues with your insurance, please understand that insurance companies can change what meds they will or won’t cover at a moment’s notice. Just because your insurance company covered a medication previously is no guarantee that they will continue to cover it. Just an FYI for you. I’ve seen it happen so many, many times. If your pharmacy says the dr has to ‘fill out some forms’ — sounds like they are talking about a prior authorization. Your insurance company is wanting more information from your dr about why your dr is prescribing that particular medication for you. Sometimes they want your dr to try other medications first.

    And if I am not mistaken in New York they have given the okay to use these drugs so that makes this move seem even more like a big middle finger to the President. It is almost as if he does not want to approve the drugs just because he thinks it will hurt Trump and he does not care what happens to the people. As mad as the Democrats get me this story bothers me even more than most because there are lives on the line and there doesn’t seem to be any reason other than spite for this action!

    In Arizona, one man died, and his wife landed in critical condition after the pair reportedly drank fish tank cleaner … So, as you know, I’m not PC and subscribe to social Darwinism. Thus far in the human novella, it would appear that Darwin was right all along. Some of the species aren’t strong enough (or smart enough) to survive. So be it. Now, if we could only come up with a solution to the pea-brain-politician problem. Den … we be gud, eh?

    Going back to work today. I was never tested, not even for the flu.

    In OH our governor has put out an emergency rule regarding chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine. We can’t dispense either drug for the virus unless the person has a positive test result for the virus, the Rx can only be for 14 days or less, and no refills. If the pt needs further treatment they have to get a new Rx. We are not permitted to dispense the drugs prophylactically.

    I wonder what would happen if a doctor were to write a prescription to an out-of-Nevada pharmacy for either of these anti-malaria drugs. Would the doctor be held in violation of the idiot order?

      The rule applies to pharmacies dispensing medication, not to doctors writing Rxs.

      Most pharmacies won’t fill out-of-state Rxs, unless it’s very close.

      We are very close to OH/MI state line. We will honor Rxs that are written by MI doctors within a certain distance. There are exceptions like specialized fields — practitioners not located in our area.

      Plus, some insurances limit where the pt can fill their Rx, sometimes they can’t cross state lines.

      My guess is that any doctor who signs his or her name to the RX form … vil be taken out und shot.
