It's a month later and I'm still trying to figure this mess out! As if Crohn's isn't bad enough, we have to fight for treatment too...
Castroh - My doctor initiated the medical benefit route, but asked me to call the specialty pharmacy (Alliance RX Walgreens) who I previously went thru for the injections...which doesn't seem right. (If they're a pharmacy, won't they always run things thru my PHARMACY benefit??) Anyway, I called them, and they told me I'll basically have the same $8k copay...which, again, doesn't seem right. I see where you advised to call Janssen directly, which I'm about
to do. But is my doctor's office (who also administers my infusions) supposed to directly buy the meds thru Janssen and not Alliance? Do they know this? Ugh, I'm
highly confused as to how all parties are supposed to get on the same page about
my Stelara! My previous treatment coord recently left, and I never used to have to worry about
any of this legwork. I suppose I was blessed to have her and I didn't even realize it.
