insurance approval

Correct me if I’m wrong–Isn’t IVIG a FDA approved treatment for CIDP? Insurance would have to cover it no matter what. Right? I have BC/BS and the case manager always tell me I need no prior authorization for IVIG. But my doctor needed something in writing before starting me on this treatment. Without IVIG I would be very depressed and paralyzed.
