TLDR; I have narcolepsy. It is an uncurable lifelong condition requiring prescription medications that have many off-label uses/abuses like GHB and stimulants. My generic medication costs my insurer less than $25 per month and they're hassling me with an annual prior authorization process. I'm turning one of their bs justifications for this into better care for me at a higher cost to them.
I have been with the same employer and insurer taking a controlled-substance medication for several years to manage symptoms from an incurable illness. After an initial prior authorization several years ago my insurer now requires annual prior authorizations to "improve my care" (bs) and "reduce (their) costs." I complained and got this quote: "Our bodies are dynamic, and as such, it is beneficial to reevaluate therapies every 1-2 years."
Describing their crappy process would be an even greater wall of... keep reading on reddit ➡

Covid-19 coronavirus outbreak
In the current context of the spread of the Covid-19 coronavirus epidemic on French territory and worldwide. In accordance with the Hippocratic Oath that we have taken, we obey our duty as a doctor. We provide our patients with the best care for the diagnosis and treatment of a disease. We respect the rules of the art and the most recently acquired data of medical science.
We have decided : · For all febrile patients who come to consult us, to carry out tests for the diagnosis of infection with Covid 19; · For all infected patients, many of whom are not very symptomatic, have lung lesions on the CT scan, to propose the disease as soon as possible, as soon as the diagnosis is made: - a treatment with the combination of hydroxychloroquine (200 mg x 3 per day for 10 days) + Azithromycin (500 mg on the 1st day then 250 mg per day for 5 more days), as part of the precautions for use of this association (including an electrocar... keep reading on reddit ➡
A RS of 1:10 with an increase in authorized shares to 250M/10 is not the end of the world.
Assuming MVIS has already issued approx 125M shares, that would mean post RS, there would be 12.5M shares issued with 25M authorized.
That means the maximum dilution possible without a further authorization would be another 12.5M shares, i.e. 50% of that authorized.
Nobody wants more dilution but that is NOT the end of the world. It would allow the company to survive and either execute its business plan, or sell at a future point when the world is not in a panic with crashing markets.
The worst possible thing would be a sale of the company now, in the middle of a panic and PPS crash, or its strangulation by its own shareholders who have grown weary. It is exactly what the shorts want and have been working for. They want to destroy the company. Now is their opportunity and they are seizing it. Look at all the new names claiming to be large and long term longs.

I mentioned this scam over in r/TalesFromTheFrontDesk and someone said I should post it here. Hi there!
So there I am, working the night shift at a hotel. A couple come in. They haven't got a reservation, but they're tired and they've been driving all night. No problem, we have availability, can I get a card please?
Oops, problem; the card is declining.
Do they have another form of payment? A debit card will be fine, as long as it- nope, that's declining too.
The gentleman swears up and down that there's enough money on the card, and they're tired and can't drive anymore and mom is in the hospital.
While he calls his bank to straighten things out, I'm getting an odd vibe from the pair. Not quite 'sketchy', but something about them isn't sitting right. They're being just a smidge too... something... and repeating they've been driving all night and mom's in the hospital and they just can't go any further...

Spotify currently has somewhere around 248 million monthly active users, and around 113 million Subscribers, as a company that has such a large user base, it's irresponsible and mind boggling that it doesn't offer any sort of two factor or geographical locking. I'm aware they will alert you if there is a sign in from another country, but that isn't anything preventing a malicious person from gaining access to your account. There is probably a set time between password guesses that a person can do which would lead to a slow but guaranteed brute force hack. With nothing like two factor EVERYONE's account is vulnerable. Spotify is now almost a 12 year old company that seems to not take the security of it's users very seriously.
This is something that needs to be addressed and implemented immediately.
Edit: By Region blocking I'm referring to a geographic block on sign ins from other countries by request.
I swear next time I'm just gonna drive down to the border to get my meds.
It's really a shame what they put us through.
Rant over. I hope everyone else is hanging in there a little better than I am today.

Does anyone else have issues getting Dexcom and their health group to communicate for pre-authorization? I have been in circles for two weeks trying to get things authorized and I’ve now run out of sensors :( I finally called Dexcom and my health group (UCSD) separately then merged the calls to make then actually talk to each other and get it done!!

My friend two young boys decided to draw on his new truck...with rocks. Obviously my friend was mad, but it's not like he sue his 5 & 8-year-old and they both been punished and told its not OK to draw on vehicles with rocks (i'm sorry but I find it kinda funny, needless to say my friend didn't find this situation as funny as I did)
So my friend called up a local body shop they said he can drop off the truck and they will do an estimate but it might take a few hours cause they are pretty busy. He has his wife drive over with him, they drop off the car for the estimate. This is his 3rd vehicle so he wasn't in need of the truck. HE dropped the car off on a Monday, he got busy with work & family, and on Friday the shop called him and told him the work had been done on the truck. This was his first communication with the body shop after dropping it off.... keep reading on reddit ➡
I’m curious about everyone’s thoughts on this report written for trans lobbyists & activists: published in November 2019, Only adults? Good practices in legal gender recognition for youth was written by the law firm Dentons with IGLYO and the Thomas Reuters Foundation.

I worked for Anthem insurance about 10 years ago, in the prior authorization department for medications to be covered by their insurance. Each claim had multiple choice questions I had to ask the caller to determine whether or not the medication would be covered. One time in particular, the pharmacy called to have a man's Prograf covered. Which is an extremely important drug to have when you've had an organ transplant, without it your body may reject the organ. I went through the process and it was denied, but I claimed to make a mistake and went back and re-answered the questions in a more favorable way, the medication was approved. I did this a number of times before being fired.
As a recruiter, I need to know since some roles won’t sponsor.
It is information that is mandatory. That being said, how do you feel about it when asked? Is there a gentler way of asking? I need to know but I’m wondering if there’s a more polite way to ask. Also, am I being too sensitive? Does anyone get offended when people ask? I just want to provide the best candidate experience is all.
“What is your work authorization status?” How do you feel when you see that? When you’re asked that? Oftentimes, it’s poc (people of color) who get asked but should this be a question asked to every candidate so as not to single people out?
"There is no determined need for formal assistance at this time, nor is there a plan for the Guard to operate as any type of enforcement of public health orders," Ivey's press release said. "This action strictly serves as a preparedness measure, should first responders or health care providers need additional support. As of Friday, Alabama has 106 confirmed cases of COVID-19." Alabama's National Guard has a variety of skills from logistics management, medical, water purification, military police and many more that could be used to supplement efforts in Alabama.

Basically the title. Guest hasn't even checked in yet but I already know he'll leave a bad review.
He started by asking for a large discount, which I agreed to (maybe I was just in a good mood). Then he changed his dates, which is ok. After that he increased his group size from 16 to 24 people and, since the extra fees add up to quite a lot for such a large group (otherwise accepting such groups is not worth the expenses and headache), he asked for an additional discount, to which I agreed and followed up by sending him a payment request (that is what I have been instructed to do by Airbnb support when a group is larger than 16).
Then, when he sent me his guest list (and a request for another additional discount) I saw that he was planning on bringing 25, not 24 people. I told him the capacity limit for my house is 24 guests. After some insistence I agreed to let him come with a group of 25, but said I could not offer him such a large discount (I was still offering a 17% discou... keep reading on reddit ➡

One thing I'd like to achieve (not sure if possible) dynamic VLAN assignment for both wired and wireless networks where the department attribute in AD is the lookup reference.
I've seen deployment examples where they add a VLAN attribute in AD but I'm wondering if I can load the VLANs I need into ISE to lookup against AD.

I’ve got 2 $1 charges to a shell gas station where I ended up not getting gas due to needing to see the cashier and no cashier being on site, anyways I see like an extra $200 or something which appeared to be charged to the card but without an actual listing in the transaction history, just the balance looks way higher, I’m assuming this is just a phantom authorization hold from swiping the card twice , anybody else have similar experiences? I hate feeling like I’m going crazy and potentially forgetting about some pending massive transaction

CoverMyMeds is an online tool that is used for submitting prior authorizations. Sign-up is pretty simple, and the "hardest" part is finding out your office's fax number so that you can verify your identity. Once you've signed up, it's pretty straightforward from that point on.
If you need a prior authorization for a certain medication, just start a new request, enter the patient's information and prescriber's information (both of which can be saved for future use), the medication details, and then submit. In most cases, you will be immediately provided with the follow-up questions. After submitting the additional information, answers are usually provided within 24 hours, although, in my experience, I've almost always gotten an answer immediately. A lot of the time, I can get a medication approved in ten minutes or less and completely forgo having to int... keep reading on reddit ➡
So long story short, i am trying to learn T-SQL on my work computer. My company owns the SSMS software and what not on the company laptop. I have since been watching youtube vids, udemy courses, to learn T-SQL, but whenever I try to replicate what is being shown, i cant do anything because i don’t have authorization. The DBA’s monitor it every day/night so even if i did add something it would get deleted by the next day.
So i’m stuck. I bought individual courses and am trying to learn and don’t want to waste time or money because I plan on leaving this company in 1 year.

I'm travelling on request of my company soon and they have booked me a hotel room for the week.
My check in documents state that upon check in an authorization request equaling the cost of the room + any charges is to be placed on my card. The issue with this is that the room is costing several hundred and thats an amount I currently dont have access to and certainly cant afford to be locked out of what I do have for up to two weeks.
Has anyone got any advice on the ways I could possibly avoid this?
Edit: The room should be pre-paid. Also this is a UK hotel

I recently downloaded gog's galaxy and forgot my old password. I got the email to request a password change smooth as silk but when I logged in with my email and new password, I was asked for a two step authorization code. No problem, I'll check my email.
Well, I'll go log into my account that I used earlier today and turn it off. Easy as pie.
"Oh, no. You have to enter the two step authorization."
I've done everything the FAQ asks me to about two step validation (notably raising an eyebrow asking me to wait 30 minutes when the validation period is 15 minutes). I've sent a email to the 'team' and noted I've done everything asked and more.

I'm looking to get an MRI of my neck but many facilities require a pre-authorization from a doctor. I don't want to waste my time with several doctors visits and weeks of PT (and thousands of dollars spent) only to be told I need an MRI anyways. Happy to pay out of pocket and not use insurance since I won't hit my deductible this year anyways. Does anyone know of any facilities that will do an MRI of my neck that don't require pre-authorization?
