Is Anybody Else Having Problems With Getting Your Insurance Company To Cover The Medication Opzelura?

Is Anybody Else Having Problems With Getting Your Insurance Company To Cover The Medication Opzelura?

The coupons are only available to those who have "commercial insurance" or no insurance. I recently retired and my medical insurance is Medicare which is not commercial insurance so there are no coupons. Hopefully when I need a refill I will be able to work with my doctor and get an exception so that Medicare will cover it since I have tried multiple treatments over the years and they have not worked.

No my insurances, you have to work with your Doctor and insurances, your doctor need to request a coupon and you get the discount, I got every month the one of 60 ml fro $45 for ever

So sorry to hear your insurance company turned down the coverage. If you haven’t already done so, my suggestion would be to ask your doctor help you with an appeal. Sometimes additional information about your situation from the doctor helps. Good luck

I have people that stare sometime, I now pay no attention to them. I use to try and hide my hands, but now I tell myself I don't have cancer or something worse so I am fine. I'm not going to say it's easy, it takes time, faith and your friends and family.

My insurance company said that it wasn’t medically necessary. I’d gladly pay the $100. But with the insurance company not wanting to pay anything, I’d have to pay $3000 out of pocket. Totally ridiculous
