Reply To: Insurance Coverage
are you sure that your diagnosis was written properly on the insurance paperwork? I ran into difficulty with Anthem BCBS because a Dr had written peripheral neuropathy instead of cidp.
You always have the option of appealing their decision not to cover, each state probably has a different appeal process, where I live, the 3rd level appeal involves the state insurance board. I have had success at that level, where the state overturned BCBS’s decision and they were required to pay.
Possibly the insurance company required a less expensive treatment be tried prior to ivig —-meaning prednisone.
They should have put a code on the denial letter that showed WHY they denied the treatment.
good luck with it, dealing with insurance companies can be stressful.
