No Ocrevus infusion yet….

No Ocrevus infusion yet….

You just can’t make this stuff up. I think the last problem has been finding an agency to come to my home for the 5 hour infusion. The reason I say I think is because I’m not even 100% sure that is what the issue is about. If that is the hold up I told them I could do it there but now that might not be an option. I’m very confused.

I’m still not sure if I’m getting the correct dosage. That’s more alarming. I got a call that my medicine has been approved for 300mg. Ocrevus is 600mg. When I spoke to my insurance they said you were approved for 2 times. Once again that would be the initial dose infusion two weeks apart splitting the full dosage. When I flipped I was told by my insurance that we could order and administer both dosages together. My doctor said the same. When I spoke with the people doing the authorization from the infusion place this caused a lot of confusion. I’m still not sure if I am doing one or two infusions. After 40 phone calls back and forth I just want a date to get this done. I can’t continue with these people it is never a smooth occurrence.

Once again I am already a week late with no date scheduled yet.

  1. Hi Jamie,

    Your experiences with Ocrevus since you began this DMT have been horrible. Have you talked about this with the nurses at Biogen’s support service, Above MS?

    Also, I’d like to use excerpts from some of your posts in my column on MS News Today to illustrate this lack of communication problem. May I?
