Yes, my insurance company would pay for the pentasa but it was $60.
I called the insurance company and ask for a list of the meds for chrons that they would pay for. They said just have the doctor make a recommendation and we will tell you if it is covered or not and the price.
I told them no, they could give me a list of some meds they were suggesting and he could choose from them.
They finally did and my dr picked one. He did say pentasa is the best med for small intestine chrons. But I have had not problems on the new med.
if you have a flare-up on the new med then contact pentas company and you might be able to get it free.
