Medication Copaxone

  • By pinkdotsx4

    How many are taking this medication? I was just diagnosed and already having problems getting this medication. My insurance TRICARE has denied to pay and want me to take the generic. I don’t want the generic due to having cancer 4 times and
    taking Chemo so many times. Copaxone is the drug that will most likely Not suppress
    my immune system.

    Any advice? Has anyone else had this problem with Tricare????
    What can I do?

    Thanks

    Hi pinkdotsx4! I am so sorry you are having trouble getting the medication you require! While I don’t have any personal experience with this treatment, my best advice would be to ask your physician to write a letter or file an appeal on your behalf, explaining exactly WHY this specific medication is the best option for you. Every insurance company has a slightly different appeals process, so you may want to check out Tricare’s protocol. Here is what I could find on their site (if, this is the correct company) — https://tricare.mil/forms.

    Good luck and don’t quit fighting for your health!

    There is a financial support for Copaxone through Teva’s Shared Solutions.
    You need to enroll and see if you qualify for some assistance.
