Can a patient in a nursing home get their meds from the VA?
My husband gets daily injections of Enoxaparin (Lovenox), prescribed by his hematologist/oncologist, because he can NOT take oral blood thinners. We obtain these injections from the VA at a very affordable price. We will have to place him in a nursing home before long. Do we have to get the drug through the nursing home pharmacy? The cost is prohibitive and would bankrupt us. I am told that Medicaid does not list this drug on their formulary. Can the nursing homes deny him this veterans benefit?
