Re: what do insurance companies pay for home IVIG therapy

Every insurance company is going to be different. Many do not pay for IVIG at all...its terribly expensive.
I have a very good insurance company who pays for almost 100% of my MS related problems, they will not pay a cent for IVIG, however they pay 100% of home infusions of solumedrol (steroids) including having the nurse come to my home 3 times in 5 days to start the infusion, change the infusion and take out the shunt...go figure.

IF you call your insurance company, possibly even go online to their site you might find the reimbursement schedule...they will definately be able to tell you if you can get thru to what is called the pre-certification department.
Good luck.
