I am on Social Security Disability and pension for work due to chronic pain from a permanent disabiity. How often must I see my doctor in order to get renewals for my prescription narcotic medications? Every month, every 2 months, or every 3 months?
My insurance does not cover my pain physician, and since my condition is chronic it seems unnecessary to have to go every month and pay a lot of money to simply get new scripts. Another person I know seeing a different doctor only has to go once every three months, and is given scripts with future dates. Is this acceptable practice?
