Especially during the induction phase it's important to have them as close to on time as possible. That said, I wouldn't take a chance on insurance denying it, because of the expense. I'd get on the phone and try to prod the insurance company.
I did yesterday and they said it was just called in Monday and they have 5 days so I don't even have an appointment yet for the next infusion! I'm wondering about
the approval - could they possibly say no, surgery is cheaper! That would be terrible!
