Reply To: Anti-MAG treatment update
I was told a fact that add to my understanding of Anti-Mag. The Anti-Mag antibodies can be generated by different lines of cells. There is no test specific enough to identify what cells are generating Anti-Mag antibodies but if the antibodies are generated by C20 cells, then Rituxan can be an effective treatment.
Speaking of Rituxan, I have been denied coverage by medicare Part D thru 3 appeals and am now at the administrative judge level.
Based on an authoritative article http://www.medicareadvocacy.org/cma-report-medicare-coverage-for-off-label-drug-use/ has to be appealed under Part D of Medicare.
In Dec. 2017 Jim LA wrote “I’m on Medicare and all my 720MG Rituxan treatments qualified to be billed under Part B medical, where my cost share is the lowest with my “Plan N Supplement”.
Jim, please share the secret of your success with me.
