Insurance Coverage – Bill’s Story

Insurance Coverage:
Bill's Story

Bill's wife has been denied insurance coverage for medication she needs

I am writing on behalf of my wife Cecelia who has been diagnosed with and is currently suffering from severe chronic osteoarthritis in her spine and knees. She is very sensitive to any kind of prescription or over the counter medicines, but we happened upon an orthopedic surgeon who was very understanding and in tune with alternative forms of medications. He prescribed Limbrel 500 for her because it was plant and food based, and not of a chemical nature.

"I would greatly desire Congress and the FDA to approve these types of medications and make them coverable under all insurance plans"

She has been on it now for about 6 months, primarily for her tri-compartmental arthritis in her knees, but it has also given a tremendous amount of relief from the severe arthritis in her lower back. Our costs are approximately $50/mo out of pocket with a deep discount coupon from the manufacturer, but the relief it gives her is worth every penny.

I would greatly desire Congress and the FDA to approve these types of medications and make them coverable under all insurance plans because this type of medication doesn’t come with any of the adverse side effects that chemical compounds do.

*Limbrel is a prescription medical food product for the clinical dietary management of the metabolic processes of osteoarthritis to be used under a physician’s supervision.
