Hello, I am in need of some help with regard to insurance coverage. My wife is a chronic migraine sufferer with daily headaches. We have seen everyone and tried everything. She is able to get pain relief from varying combinations of Amerge, Imitrex nasal spray, Maxalt and Zomig. We found a very compassionate phyisicain (Dr. Mauskopf in New York) who gives her whatever she needs and our insurance company has also been very generous and has paid for unlimited amounts of each of these. She uses sometimes 3 Amerge everyday, plus others. HELP - our insurance is running out and we need to find a new company that won't set the ridiculous limits on these meds. Many will give 9 or 18 tabs a month, as they calculated 2 or 3 headaches a week max. Do you have any suggestions on good health insurance??? THANK YOU!!!
