I was wondering what insurance companies people have been able to get to cover Xeljanz for our condition. I am currently with Blue Cross and they have covered it for the past two years, but I now have to send in a new pre-auth and I don't know if they will continue covering it.  My husband's employee group insurance is with Aetna and I was wondering if anyone has had any luck with that company, or any other insurance company, for that matter.  Thanks.

How'd this end up going. I am switching from Cigna to Aetna and wondering if Aetna will cover me for AA. I know they require a preauth. Wondering how your experience we t. And if you can give me any pointers
Hi Newjack. It didn't go too well. Aetna refused to cover it on the basis that it is not being used for RA, and they won't cover off label use. We appealed, and my doctor sent a letter, but it was denied again. Blue Cross Carefirst did civer it again, however, untill 2019.

I just got it approved for my 14 year old daughter through CIGNA for 1 year, but she will be on a different insurance starting Jan 1st.  So I am hoping that one, which is a Blue Cross/Blue Shield plan will cover it.  Fingers crossed.

more interesting (to me, anyway) is her age; are there any other patients that young that have been prescribed xeljanz? 

is it topical or oral that she is taking? I know there has been a study on topical jak inhibitors on children 10 and up

What state are you in because Blue Shield of California has  constantly denied coverage.

Insurance is a huge industry. In addition to the thousands of agencies in the United States alone, there are a huge number of insurance companies developing software insurance. You can read more about this here: https://igniteoutsourcing.com/publications/top-insurance-software-d... .Nowadays this is important and quite relevant, almost all residents of progressive countries use insurance.

Well yeah. I'm in a search myself because strange things are happening around the world.

Many consider them to be planned, others say many conspiracy theories. My opinion is that - you can't be sure for 100% in mass media. News for me were like a hypnosis machine that instructs and indicates people how to think and believe. Anyways, my point is that we all have some kind of struggles with international pandemic status. We need good health insurance - everybody knows that, but it costs some money. Yes, but on the other hand if someone will buy a car for 5 years of credit plan, but would not be able to drive it, what is the point from that car. I mean he broke a finger on his leg, and it's not acceptable for that person to drive vehicles legally. My point of view is clear here, I think. I have health insurance and so does my wife, we got from this a guide with health insurance plan for 2020 covid-19

Nowadays a lot of insurance companies in the market and offering many great plans to their customers But this insurance agency have great deals for their special customers.

It depends on the insurance company you are willing to contract for insurance. Some companies failed to pass through this challenging period and remain on the market, and they have nothing else to do except lift their prices. Still, there are companies like Money Expert, where nothing changed, and the price for full coverage insurance is the same price it was four years ago. Visit their website if you are interested in more information related to this topic. I am sure you won't be disappointed about it.
