    OMG. She said the pharmacy screwed up and you know it.

    Next up, BC will be saying that all diabetics should have an extra three month supply squirreled away for situations like this but remember, insurance companies will not let you refill a script more than a couple of days early.

    "Oh, definitely! And it makes a great argument for them to get off their fat butts, get on an appropriate diet, start exercising and losing weight -- something that might actually CURE their diabetes.

    As opposed to starting them on something that could make them gain MORE weight, possibly WORSENING their diabetes, and providing them with a tool that makes it easier for them to cheat on their diets."

    You are starting to sound like Jenny....

    I think you may be right since the short interest is so high. I will be ready to add since I didn't pull the trigger last week.

    Thanks, Robert, for another great article.

    I hope that doctors will see the advantages for afrezza in the elderly and start prescribing it. My father (T2) who is on metformin, would be a good candidate but he is one of those seniors who will not argue with his doctor.

    And Laureen fought the insurance company and now has a long term prescription.

    You sure do twist things, don't you.

  • MannKind Corporation: Afrezza Is Better Than Weak Launch Suggests [View article]
    Afrezza was a deliberate slow launch - not a weak launch - and mnkd/sny was up front about that from the beginning.

  • My Primary Care Provider's Take On Afrezza [View article]
    "She also said that prior authorization is needed by some insurance companies, and that it can be difficult to get prior authorization when the drug is "non-superior" and there is a cheaper, generic version available."

    I haven't come across one diabetic that hasn't gotten on afrezza after fighting with their insurance company if they are first refused. Sounds like your NP doesn't want to go the extra mile for her patients.

    I am glad to see the upswing in the share price but I think we will see a few more raids.

    The DTC will begin in diabetes magazines. There should be no reason to delay the DTC roll out.

  • 3 Tips To Those Retiring Over The Next Year [View article]
    I am totally confused now....

    As I understand it, I can't collect full SS until the age of 67 and I can't get medicare unless I am collecting SS. According to this article I will be penalized if I don't start medicare at 65. So, if I wait until 67 to collect full SS I will be penalized? Makes no sense.

    Kevin has been reporting that for the last couple of years. He is bound to be right eventually, though.
