Advocacy for Patients with Chronic Illness, Inc.
April 28, 2012

Finding myself sick and wheelchair bound from severe tenosinovitis caused by Lupus plus the chemotherapy etc. was not helping anymore, my insurance comany (BCBS of NE) decided that Benlysta (which had been approved by the FDA) was an investigative treatment and would not be covered. They denied me and then denied the appeal from my rheumatolotist. I was just too sick at this point to fight them myself. Jennifer and Nicole took my case and forced the insurance company to cover the medicine that was necessary. It is a horrible state of affairs in my mind that the insurance company can not be trusted to be responsible, but on the other hand, thank God that there are people and a few intitutions like the Advocacy for Patients with Chronic Illness who can and are willing to be helpful.
