I have Aetna and I'm not sure about how approval for Entyvio works when you are already on it. Aetna made me try and fail Remicade and Humira before letting me try Entyvio, but it is probably different when you are already on it.
I did the home infusions and it was great. I have to go to an infusion clinic for iron infusions, but the home infusion is so much better. I had my nurses come on weekday nights after work, but I believe they do have nurses that work weekends too. The nurses are contractors and the infusion company just matches you up with a nurse that works the hours that you need. You get mailed the medication a day or two ahead of your appointment. That kind of made me nervous, but I've never had a package go missing. You can also request a signature be required, but I didn't want to miss work. Also, check that the infusion company that your doctor sends you to is in-network. One time they tried to arrange it with an out-of-network one.
