Has anyone tried seeing if their insurance would cover their priobiotics costs?  I know each insurance is different, I just wanted to know if anyone has ever tried it or had any luck.

I don't know of any insurance paying for probiotics. Its a supplement and I don't even think its followed by the FDA.

Been living with Crohn's Disease for 32 years.  Currently on Asacol, Prilosec 60 mg, Estrace, Prinivil, Diltiazem, Percoset prn for pain and Calcium.  Resections in 2002 and 2005.  Recently diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and doing tests to see if I have Inflammatory Arthritis or AS.
