Re: What meds are closest to Nexium? My insurance is dropping nexium.

I just called up United Healthcare and they confirmed they are dropping Nexium as of 9/1/2006. They do not have the replacement drug list available yet.

This decision can be appealled by the individual. You or your doctor can write the appeal letter, which needs to contain:

-Patient Name
-Patient Subscriber #
-Name of Medicine and Strength
-Patient mailing address
-Telephone Number
-Doctor's Name and Telephone Number.

The letter should be mailed to :
United Healthcare Appeals
P.O. Box 659773
San Antonio, TX
78265

Don't forget to send it certified! (Not required, but I'd recommend it)
