August 8th, 2005
I have put in a request for regular preventative injections and found out it was denied today by insurance. They will not cover Betaseron without prior authorization or trial of Rebif or Avonex. I also finish my oral dose of steriods today and no improvement. I call back the Dr.'s office to see what is on tap now to treat my condition. They call me back and say that they recommend an IV treatment for 5 days of Solumedrol, 1gram over an hour. I wait for the home care nurse agency to call me back to schedule a set up time to put in the IV catheter.
