Hi all, my doctor wants to prescribe Remicade but the pre-authorization forms make me worried that 1) Behcet's is not covered (because only 5 other illnesses are included on the form), and 2) It may be covered under pharmaceutical (expensive!) rather than medical (where they will do the injections in the office). Oh, it also asks if "the patient has been treated with the preffered TNF antagonists, Enbrel or Humira" and if those have failed. I have not tried those (and we've determined my best option for my symptoms if Remicade so I don't want to try those) but is there any way around that question?
Basically, does anyone have experience getting Remicade approved? If so, I would love to know if there is anything I can do to make sure things go smoothly.
Thank you very much!
