BREAKING NEWS: URGENT ATTENTION NEEDED concerning Acthar gel for MS and Aetna Medical insurance


  • Aetna medical insurance is considering no longer paying for the ACTHAR Gel for Multiple Sclerosis
  • Aetna is trying to prevent an FDA approved medication from being used by MS patients

Whether or not you have ever used Acthar or intend to use it in the future is not the issue.

THE ISSUE is that once a medical insurer stops paying for one medication, what is to stop them from halting insurance on other medications.

Learn about Acthar (also known as ACTH) here
Acthar is used by patients who cannot tolerate solumedrol.

THIS IS A CALL TO ACTION and YOUR assistance is needed

DOING ONE of the ABOVE will only take you a few minutes AND could result in this company NOT discriminating against an FDA approved medication.

If you call one of the above persons, know that you will need to leave a message either with a secretary or on their voicemail. 

Whether you are the patient or caregiver, Healthcare provider or just someone who cares, your Voice is needed to be heard or your email is needed to be read..

We suggest that you ask that ACTHAR GEL remain an available medication to the Multiple Sclerosis Community

EVERY CALL and EVERY Email has an impact. PLEASE RESPOND quickly as Aetna wants to make their decision by Mid-Month/ This month of October 2012


The information/ Request found above was sent from a private source who asks to remain anonymous

I sent emails which were returned, so we called. When we finally had someone answer the phone, they told us they were not accepting calls about Acthar and they slammed they phone down. Very rude, so be prepared.

WHY am I not surprised to read this message. I comprised an email - that I sent to them TWICE already and have not received a response...
