Reply To: Insurance asking for "Medical Necessity" for IVIg treatments

Bryan, how have things worked out? I just finished my first 6 months of approved ivig infusions every 2 weeks. I told the neuro that I thought I should stay on the every 2 week plan given my state of Soto she and he agreed. I have Aetna through my work. I was on the HMO plan but upped my enrollment to the POS plan to have more options without needing referrals in my medical future. I was very pleased to receive my Aetna letter the other day saying I was approved for the next 6 months of infusions every 2 weeks. Just hoping that the day will come when I may be like chirpy birds and only need maintenance doses. Right now, my cidp is very unpredictable but at the same time manageable. Let us know how things are turning out for you and best of luck. Jeff in Houston.
