A little over a week ago I received the news that I would receive a somewhat new psoriasis medication, apremilast (Otezla), direct from the manufacturer. At first I felt a sense of relief that the battles with insurance over covering it came to an end. Then I faced the prospect of taking the medication. A feeling of dread overcame me.
Today I found out that insurance denied my dermatologist’s prescription for Otezla (apremilast). With so many days passing before hearing I assumed the scrip ran into issues. I was right.
