The ongoing insurance cost-cutting has impacted hemophilia deeply, particularly since we are flashing beacon on payers’ radar. One of the most prominent impacts has been forced homecare switching. Reactions by families include irritation at being switched without forewarning; anger at being switched without any say in the matter; and fear at being switched to a company that has no experience with hemophila.
Read the current issue of PEN, which delves deeply into what is happening, why, and how this could impact you. We interview 17 patients and opinion leaders to see how forced switching is impacting lives. What we do know is this: forced switching is not something that can easily be reversed, and it is definitely a cost-cutting tactic that is here to stay. Tims are changing–read PEN to learn about all the changes and how to adapt while best protecting your loved ones with bleeding disorders.
