    could be how much will the insurance cover...

    • i would have to disagree on this one because Jack said the price is low, only a few bucks. I think of it as what ppl would spend on supplements and nothing like what expensive prescriptions go for. If ppl really want this product they wont need insurance to really get it. This product isnt like a statin or something really expensive.

      Im more concerned about product launch. i still have not seen any advertising in health mags or on any health sites, what are they waiting for? do they want a VVUS launch?

      I'm also a little concerned about EU approval. someone mentioned that the eu did not approve VVUs to conduct further tests then the EU disapproved VVUS' drug but the EU is allowing ARNA to conduct their tests so it might be an approval but you never know with these boards.

    • At least Vivus broke the ice on that question. They are currently trying to get more insurers to cover anti obesity drugs. That will be a better start when we get to market.

      I think they said insurance was paying around 34% of the prescriptions filled in October.
