GetHuman1042757's customer service issue with OptumRx from August 2018

Help with my OptumRx issue
The issue in GetHuman1042757's own words
fill for * months. Was advised that ins wouldn't do so. You were going to pursue authorization. I was just advised by ins that they denied my request. ... I rec'd a call from OptumRX, given a call back * of ***-***-**** but can't get a human being on the phone to find out the reason for the call. The message included a ref* of *********
Insurance doesn't seem to realize*care that w*o this medication I will be prone to having migraines that result in me having seizures on a regular basis. I had to switch to this medication because the ones I've been on have become ineffective.
I want insurance to approve this request so that it doesn't cost me $**** a month to have my migraine medication that helps prevent seizures- I have seizures when I have migraines.
I have been a customer for several years and have generally been satisfied.
I went to my local pharmacy. They advised that there is no generic so there is no alternative medication.
I have an issue with OptumRx too
How GetHuman1042757 fixed the problem
I called the main number, provided them with the ref * that was included in the voice mail. The rep then tracked it down, requested info to identify myself and provided me with the info from the message via a secure email.
