Check with Insurance Company before Rituxan Treatments
Hi everyone! Just wanted to let you know that any of you that are considering Rituxan treatments should check with your insurance coompany regarding if they will cover it. I got a not so cheap bill from the hospital because my insurance denied coverage. They consider Rituxan experimental for lupus and would not cover it. And let's just say each treatment is a few thousand dollars each!!!! I'm going to my doctor tomorrow and I'm going to have him appeal it and if that doesn't work I'm going to see if gentech the pharm. co. that makes rituxan will give me some reimbursement. Wish me luck! :lol:
