Thanks, Jim-LA. I should have said that I was referred to an Oncologist at OHSU and he is the one I am trying to get a definitive anser from about insurance coverage. All my docs agree that I should start on Rituxan, but I won’t until they can give me a guarantee I won’t have to pay. Guess I will have to keep bugging them….was hoping someone on this forum could give a tip as to how to get it approved. I will talk to them about medical necessity, as that is the case with me. I can not have IVIG…I did that for over 15 years, and it finally started causing bad problems with my kidneys. Blood in urine for three weeks after treatment. Not good. Thanks again for your help….I’ll keep at it!
