Reply To: How did you get your insurance to cover Rituxan?

Thanks Jim. Yes, I read my bcbs medical policies on Rituxan and CIDP and then I called going through them with my case manager but nothing was there.
I know they want evidence based medicine but seems like potential cost savings to insurance vs 10 day PlEx every month. There is anecdotal evidence.
Ill take a look at the post you linked and double check the IGG4 again.
Neuro was suggesting maybe a different immunosuppressant but Ive also got a cancer I am dealing with and must be cautious with the suppressants.

edit- I see she was previously on Rituxan with good results. That had to help her appeal.
