MS Breaking News
Been an interesting week here as I battle the wonderful world of managed care with one goal in mind…precertification! Without it, Tysabri infusions will not occur.
Meanwhile, I received an alarming email I had to share. MultipleSclerosis News Today headlined: https://multiplesclerosisnewstoday.com/blog/2016/08/15/cvs-drops-big-name-ms-drugs-from-2017-formulary/.
I personally have CVS Caremark and verified the truth behind this article. It appears treatment decisions made between doctors and patients could be compromised by prescription carriers. I’m sickened!
Often when one carrier begins this trend, others will follow. Does this effect you? Contact your personal prescription carrier, check their formulary (usually on their webpage), and follow up with your neuro’s office if needed.
Please don’t hesitate to ask any questions you might have. Together, I’m sure bloggers will unite and share resources or options that could be helpful! We’re in this together!
