Hi- I'm going thru the same thing, just switched insurance companies & am making a bunch of phone calls daily to ensure my remicade is still covered. I would think any good-sized insurance company would cover remicade, at some level. Does he know what insurance company they plan to switch too? If so, you could always call them & expalin that you are about
to become a member, & ask them what their remicade coverage entails. I don't know about
writing to the district manager- you could, but it probably wouldn't make any difference when they choose an insurer. Also, if you are currently getting remicade, most insurers will allow you to remain on it, so I would start the drug as soon as you can, before the switch occurs.
