Had to switch to HMO this year and say bye to my ortho and PM. Scary? Yes.
First of all, it was hard to find an HMO GP. All said they're not taking new patients. Never seen that before I'm used to PPO insurance. Every doc takes my call. Anyway, finally got a GP and she referred me to a PM. Finally saw him last week and he kept me on the same meds. No questions asked. Yippy!!!! I have to seen him each month. My old PM was every 2-3 months. It's a very long drive but happy to do it if I can keep my meds.
