One of the most confidence building notes is " Eisai reported that, according to BusinessOne Technologies, Inc., BELVIQ is now covered by several prominent health plans and pharmacy benefit managers, including Express Scripts. Eisai also reported that is in active discussions with other major payors to further improve the reimbursement landscape."
To me a big key to gaining expectancy in the medical and patient community is simply that my prescription plan covers it. Makes all the difference but I haven't really seen anyone stress that point. Did I miss it or am I placing too high a significance on it? To me, as a patient, if my Doctor wants me to go on a medication the fact that my plan covers it is big. Both in the financial aspect and also in having confidence in the drug. I figure if covered must have some significant benefit to me as a patient.
