Back home we had public healthcare, so to get my regular prescription all I would need to do is phone a GP and get it ordered in. With the type of medicine I have, I could only request a month's supply at a time, and now I'm running out.
I've only just got health insurance here sorted out from my work - took me forever to get signed up for it, so now I've got just about a week to get a new supply. My questions are:
- Is it just a case of rocking up to one of the network clinics on the list I've been given and... asking them to prescribe me more?
- Would I need to register at a specific clinic or have an in-depth consultation first?
- Do I need some kind of card to prove that I'm insured, or is logging into the insurance portal enough?
Also worried about the waiting times to see a doctor here, as I've never needed to see one before now. If it's longer than 7 days I'm fairly screwed! Ha!
