Default Humana Drops Avonex Coverage

Bottom line profits win out over common sense I guess:

Just got a lovely phone call from Humana. It seems that starting in 2019, they will no longer cover the Interferon beta-1a drug Avonex.

I've been on it for 18 years,and my M.S. has stayed pretty stable during that time.

Will be interesting to see how my body adjusts to not having it. Has anyone else gone off of it, either cold turkey or tapering off?

Insurance companies really are evil gits!
