Reply To: IVIG dependent CIDP

there was a fellow I met at the infusion center that has had cidp for >10 years who had to have ivig every 3 weeks or he ended up in the hospital

so I guess he had “ivig dependent cidp”…his insurance always denied a prior authorization request every year until he ended up in an ICU bed, then OK’d ivig for another whole year…sad state of affairs for our health care system
